Has Michael Fassbender Been Cast In ‘Macbeth?’
I’ll take Michael Fassbender in anything.
It seems that Fassy might have a new project on the horizon – yet another screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Now, Fassy has a natural Irish accent, he can do a decent German accent, English accent and American accent. But can he do a Scottish accent?
Everyone from Sam Worthington (really) to Orson Welles has taken on Macbeth, and the Shakespeare play that dare not say its name has been adapted countless time for the stage, television and multiplex. Well, when it comes to the cinema, (quality) movie versions have been a bit fewer and farther between, so the news that Michael Fassbender might take the lead in “the Scottish play” certainly has our attention.
