Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard to Star in "Macbeth," with Original Dialogue

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard to Star in "Macbeth," with Original DialogueSubmit Comment
The Weinstein Company is nearing a deal to distribute a new version of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" that will star Michael Fassbender as the title character and Marion Cotillard (Inception) as Lady Macbeth.

The new movie will be directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) and will take place in 11th century as the original play. It will also use original dialogue. Many believe that the deal gives the studio a chance to do what it does best, which is to give its films Oscar buzz in order to achieve strong box office performances. And with Fassbender on board, Harvey Weinstein believes his job will be easier than usual.

The story follows the devious Macbeth, a Scottish lord who will stop at nothing to become King. "Macbeth" has been adapted for the big screen several times. In 2006, Geoffrey Wright directed his version with Sam Worthington (Avatar) in the lead.

The director's First film, Snowtown, is a fantastic, realistic film. It's also bleak and depressing as hell.

Oh god. I'm having flashbacks to grade 11 English class. Macbeth is so stupid. Hamlet is where it's at!

The Polanski Macbeth was great, Orson Welles' film adaptation felt like a stage play but with grand camera movements (and fantastic performances) and the best Shakespeare adaptation from Japan, Throne of Blood (definitely in Kurosawa's top five films). So Macbeth truly is a great work from Shakespeare.
