No sightings yet of Brad Pitt, Paul Giamatti, Michael K. Williams or Paul Dano, who also have roles in the film. An unofficial image of pint-sized Quvenzhane Wallis in costume is here.
Here's what we know so far about the film: Written by John Ridley from the book by Solomon Northup, it centers on his true story. Northup (Ejiofor), a freed black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery in the pre-Civil War United States. Fassbender plays Northup's malevolent slave owner, and Pitt a Canadian abolitionist.
McQueen previously directed Fassbender in "Shame," acquired by Searchlight, and "Hunger."
The film is set to hit theaters on December 27, just in time for awards season.
