Justin Kurzel is directing Assassin’s Creed. Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are starring in Assassin’s Creed. Justin Kurzel directed Macbeth. Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star in Macbeth. See what’s happened here? It’s a classic case of people who enjoyed working together.
Do we need another adaptation of Macbeth? No, especially considering Shakespeare adaptations can be particularly fickle. And yet, we’ve faith in Kurzel and the early reviews are suggesting that he’s knocked it out of the park. It’s Shakespeare, it’s Game of Thrones, it’s William Wallace, it’s the constitution, it’s Mabo, it’s justice, it’s law,it’s the Vibe and, no that’s it, it’s the vibe. I rest my case.
“Macbeth, a duke of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself.”
Macbeth stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, David Thewlis, Sean Harris and Elizabeth Debicki and is set for release in October, 2015.
