Macbeth and Lady Macbeth Found in Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman for Newest ‘Macbeth’ Adaptation
A couple of well-known actors have been cast to play the Macbeth and Lady Macbeth duo. Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) and Natalie Portman (The Star Wars prequel trilogy) will go back in time.
They were added to the project, simply titled Macbeth, that is set to be directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown). To my count, this will be the 19th adaptation of the famous William Shakespeare play. This includes the fourth since 2006. Although it’s been done before, this could be the biggest starpower splash in quite some time.
Other information, including supporting stars and release dates, will be made available later on. Until then, brush up on your Shakespeare!
