Rachel Weisz Sees 'Light Between Oceans' With Michael Fassbender For Director Derek Cianfrance

10 July 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Michael Fassbender has so many projects coming up—"Slow West," "Macbeth," "Assassin's Creed," an untitled Terrence Malick film—we nearly forgot about "The Light Between Oceans." And shame on us because it's directed by Derek Cianfrance, who has knocked it out of the park with his last two films, "Blue Valentine" and "The Place Between The Pines." And the project is adding another exciting name. The Wrap reports that Rachel Weisz is in early discussions to join the film, which also has Alicia Vikander on board. Based on the book by M.L. Stedman, and set in the West Coast of Australia around Wwi, the story centers on a lighthouse keeper and his wife and the moral consequences they must face when they find a 2-month-old girl and a dead body in a rowboat, and decide to raise the baby as their own. The blessing soon turns tragic and presumably rips the relationship apart. »

Us launch of Tracks delayed

18 May 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The Us debut of John Curran.s Tracks has been postponed- for four months.

The Outback adventure starring Mia Wasikowska as .camel girl. Robyn Davidson was originally dated for May 23.

But The Weinstein Co, which bought the Us rights after its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, has shifted the date to September 19.

Date changes are not unusual but it may be that TWC has revised its expectations in light of the film.s box-office results in Australia and several major territories. The film chronicling Davidson.s 2,700 km trek across the Australian outback in 1977 has grossed $2.38 million in Australia.

According to Box Office Mojo, Tracks has earned $US726,000 after its fifth weekend in Germany, $610,000 after its third in the UK and $311,000 in two weekends in Italy. The film went out on a fairly wide 80, 55 and 79 screens respectively.

Production Begins on Macbeth with Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard & Paddy Considine

6 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The rise of Michael Fassbender has been one of the best things to see in recent years, with his acclaimed performance in 12 Years a Slave earning him the Oscar nomination he was robbed of on Steve McQueen’s Shame. Now the actor is turning his sights to Shakespeare, in Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of the classic tragedy, Macbeth.

StudioCanal have announced that production on Macbeth is officially underway, with ScreenDaily revealing that the film is set to shoot for seven weeks in England and Scotland.

Fassbender takes the lead as the titular general-turned-King of Scotland, with Marion Cotillard, Sean Harris, Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Jack Reynor, and Elizabeth Debicki starring alongside him.

Cotillard of course takes the female lead as Lady Macbeth, with Harris taking on the role of Macduff and Considine playing Banquo.

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. »
