Michael Fassbender Swings His Long Sword In Other Dude's Faces On The Set Of Macbeth! Uh, We Mean That Scottish Play!
Oh, we'd come clutch his dagger all night long!
Michael Fassbender was seen hovering through the fog and not-so-filthy air in Farnham, United Kingdom practicing his fight moves for Macbeth!
Michael plays the title role in this Shakespearean tragedy, which is being produced by the same company that made The King's Speech.
Macbeth is kind of like The King's Speech, because both future monarchs are afraid to rule. One takes speech therapy, the other brutally murders a lot of people. Other than that, pretty much the same story!
To paraphrase Lady Macbeth, Michael totally looked like the innocent flower in this makeshift battle, but he's totally being the serpent under it…and since he's Michael Fassbender, it's probably a rather large serpent!
According to the film's website, the flick will have a "modern themed take on a timeless story." Macbeth potentially set in 2014? Aw yeah!
Word of advice, Michael…lay off Macduff! Trust us…do NOT piss that guy off.
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow will creep in this petty pace from day to day until this movie will finally come out! We're so excited!
