Before he returns as Magneto in next year's X-Men: Apocalypse, Michael Fassbender takes on a beloved William Shakespeare story in the upcoming adaptation Macbeth. Following the international trailer released back in June, The Weinstein Company has debuted the first domestic trailer for Macbeth, debuting in select theaters December 4. The drama will go up against Universal's horror-comedy Krampus, Fox Searchlight's Youth and Cohen Media Group's documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut.
From the producers of The King's Speech comes the feature film adaptation of Shakespeare's Scottish play about General Macbeth (Michael Fassbender) whose ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard) urges him to use wicked means in order to gain power of the throne over the sitting king. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare's most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war-torn 11th Century Scotland.Read More
Just hours after we reported that Ubisoft and New Regency's video game adaptation Assassin's Creed has been given the green light, Deadline reports that Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard has joined the cast. No details were given for the actress' character, but a report from August revealed that there is a female character named Lara, who provides assistance to Michael Fassbender's character Michael Lynch. Deadline's report also reveals that Marion Cotillard's character will also be used in multiple movies, if this first adaptation becomes a hit and spawns a franchise.
While these story details from August have yet to be confirmed yet, that report revealed Michael Fassbender will actually be playing two roles, Michael Lynch in scenes set in present day, and an assassin named Aguilar de Agarorobo during the Spanish Inquisition. The adaptation is reportedly based on the Assassin's Creed II video game, where the father of the game's main character, Ezio Auditore, was an important assassin. The adaptation will feature Tomas de Torquemada as the villain in the past, with Abstergo CEO Alan Rikkan serving as the villain in present day sequences.Read More
