Tony Award nominee Ethan Hawke, seen earlier this year on Broadway in a revival of Sam Shepherd's True West, is slated to direct a feature film adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ rarely produced play Camino Real, with Oscar-winning English Patient actor Juliette Binoche attached to star.

Hawke wrote the screen adaptation with writer-composer Shelby Gaines. Filming will begin next year in Brazil.

Williams' abstract drama plucks its cast of characters—including Don Quixote, Casanova, Camille, and Lord Byron—from history and literature, stranding them in a tropical no-man’s land along with an American sailor named Kilroy, and several other mysterious inhabitants.

The play baffled critics and audiences in 1953, closing after 60 performances.
