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??!
