Michael Fassbender To Go Insane For MacBeth!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMichael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender is set to get Shakespearean!

The babe that brought us Shame will be stretching his very large acting muscle once again as mad power hungry general in the film adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Is anyone else thinking about how seXXXy he'll look in uniform??!

The flick will include at least one other Hollywood heavyweight who has yet to be cast and is to be produced by the same crew who won the Oscar for The King's Speech.

The play has been brought to the big screen multiple times, but what is REALLY crazy about this version is it will be shot in its original Scottish language!

While that most likely just means a heavy accent, it'll definitely be a challenge…especially for this German!

But besides the language obstacle, such a complex and iconic character is quite the undertaking…

Do YOU think Michael is right for the legendary role??!

    NO! if you want the right person.. get David Tennant, not only is he
    Scottish he is hot as hell. And he played the role on stage in the UK and on the BBC.

    Why does Hollywood think we still need these Shakespeare adaptions? The recent Romeo and Juliet is already annoying the living hell out of countless people… JUST LEAVE SHAKESPEARE ALONE ALREADY. Or go for the plays that haven't been adapted a billion times already. We already have a brilliant Macbeth version with Kate Winslet, why the hell do these people think we need another? COME UP WITH SOMETHING NEW ALREADY. Even the dumb people will open their eyes soon and realize it's not worth spending their money on something that's been done before countless times.

    Well apparently, according to this headline, this adaptation may be somewhat different. So Macbeth is mad/ insane? Well that's a first! Normally it is his Missus!

    Come on folks familiarise yourselves with the story BEFORE you grab that headline.

    As for why we need another film adaptation. That would be like asking why anyone should ever bother performing the play again on stage. Different directors, different actors bring different aspects to any dramatic work, that goes for Shakespeare too.

    Lol - "scottish language" - you've made my day - it's not a fricking language - they speak English with a Scottish accent and there have been a few versions where the original accent was used. Journalism at it best!

    Re: Beans – Actually it is YOU that is not well-educated in Shakespearean literature. If you even scanned the play you would know that Macbeth goes mad with guilt because he doesnt know whether or not to believe the witches. Were they figments of his imagination? Madness is what drives the plot with him AND his wife. Do your proper research before you diss Perez!

    Michael Fassbender is actually part Irish, so..It probably won't be too hard for him.

    Fassbender would be perfect for the role "Macbeth". It's his acting ability (especially in period dramas- e.g. jane Eyre) that makes him fit for any role that comes his way, and that is why directors/film makers prefer him.
