As one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood right now, Michael Fassbender definitely has his pick of projects. From big blockbusters and franchises to more character-driven work, he continues to surprise us with where he shows up. With films like Prometheus 2, Assassin’s Creed and Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans all on his slate, the actor is hoping to continue to keep busy and for his next outing, will shoot a heist thriller titled Trespass Against Us.
Set to begin production this summer, the Adam Smith-directed film co-stars Brendan Gleeson, Rory Kinnear, Sean Harris, Killian Scott and Lyndsey Marshal. It will tell the story of the Cutler family, “who live as outlaws, hunting hares, ram-raiding stately homes and taunting the police. As the letter of the law finally catches up with Chad (Fassbender), he is torn between the archaic principles of his father (Gleeson) and what he believes is best for his children.”
If you recall, Fassbender was actually in talks for the role back in the Fall, but now it appears that he’s officially on board and that it will be his next film. No word on a release date yet, but with production getting underway this summer, it shouldn’t be too long before we see it hit theatres.
Tell us, are you happy to see Michael Fassbender going back to a smaller, more character focused film like Trespass Against Us for his next project, or are you eager to see him hop back into another big blockbuster? Sound off below!
