Portman and Fassbender Team Up For MACBETH

By AMC May 2, 2013

Despite it not working out that Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender got to work together on "Jane Got a Gun" due to Fassbender's scheduling conflicts, the two are teaming up for a new project.

Focusing on none other than the famous Shakespearean character "Macbeth", the two are joining Justin Kurzel's adaptation of the famous play, for a new film version. Fassbender is set to play the title character while Portman will play his Lady Macbeth. The project is said to be filmed in the play's original language.

Portman and Fassbender recently worked together on Terrence Malick's upcoming "Untitled Project" and according to reports, Portman wanted to work with Fassbender again. The two are very talented and charismatic actors, so I look forward to seeing what they can create together, portraying two very complicated and strong characters.

Kurzel is known for "Showtown", which centered around Australia's notorious serial killer John Bunting. Jumping from that to a true Shakespearean adaptation, may come as a surprise to many, so it will be interesting to see what artistic eye he brings to such a a project.
