Juliette Binoche, Ralph Fiennes, and Vanessa Redgrave will all be part of London's National Theatre's 2008 season.

Binoche, an Oscar winner for The English Patient, will star in a new dance-based piece, created by choreographer Akram Khan; Fiennes -- who co-starred with Binoche in The English Patient -- will take on the title role in Oedipus, helmed by Jonathan Kent, who directed the actor in his Tony Award-winning performance of Hamlet; and Redgrave will star in the stage adaptation of Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking, directed by David Hare, which earned her a 2007 Tony nomination.

Other offerings will include artistic director Nicholas Hytner's revival of George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara; Samuel Adamson's new version of Ibsen's Little Eyolf, directed by Marianne Elliott; a new play by Tony Harrison about the late classicist and poet Gilbert Murray; Coram Boy director Melly Still's production of Jacobean classic The Revenger's Tragedy; and new works from Hare (directed by Howard Davies) and Michael Frayn (directed by Michael Blakemore).
