"Macbeth" is now in production, with Michael Fassbender in the lead role, and the actor is careful in judging his character too quickly or harshly. "I don’t think Macbeth is evil. I think he’s damaged," he told the Daily Mail. "When we meet him, he’s a man who’s as good as his circumstances will allow. He serves his king loyally and looks after his soldiers."

"Macbeth" is now in production, with Michael Fassbender in the lead role, and the actor is careful in judging his character too quickly or harshly. "I don’t think Macbeth is evil. I think he’s damaged," he told the Daily Mail. "When we meet him, he’s a man who’s as good as his circumstances will allow. He serves his king loyally and looks after his soldiers."

The first images from Justin Kurzel's ("Snowtown Murders") film are here, highlighting not just Fassbender, but Marion Cotillard, who has the juicy role of Lady Macbeth, one she will be playing with her native French accent intact. Fassbender details the headspace that Macbeth finds himself in with his wife. "He’d been away fighting and when he returns, we see it’s a relationship that’s broken down. They lost a child, and there wasn’t time for them to grieve because he’s been away campaigning," he explained. "Lady M is desperate for that reconnection, and briefly they do. And, of course, the doorway has been opened to darkness and to violence."

With the promo starting early on this film, one wonders if The Weinstein Company will be presenting the first footage next month in their now annual sizzle reel presentation for Cannes press. One to definitely look out for regardless.
