30 June 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We are always excited when we see Michael Fassbender in something different, and after his rather strange turn as the very large headed but brilliant Frank, we were ready for something new and lucky for all of us, we have the first image from his new film Slow West.

Brit director John Maclean’s directorial feature debut sees Kodi Smit-McPhee as a 17 year old boy travelling to America’s wild west to search for his love.  Fassbender plays Silas, a mysterious traveller who is paid to protect him on his emotional and dangerous journey.

Maclean and Fassbender previously worked together on Maclean’s short films Man On A Motorcycle and Pitch Black Heist.  Fassbender will also be producing the film which has yet to receive a release date at this point.

Speaking at SXSW 2014 Kodi Smit-McPhee revealed more details about he film:

“I fall in love with someone who works on our land. »
