Steve McQueen (no, not the Hollywood icon, he passed away in 1980) previously directed the critically-acclaimed dramas Hunger and Shame, both of which feature physically-demanding central performances from Michael Fassbender (of X-Men: First Class and Prometheus fame) and have established McQueen’s reputation as a skilled and artistically-motivated cinematic storyteller.

This year, the filmmaker returns with his third feature-length effort: 12 Years a Slave, which is based on the memoir titled “Twelve Years a Slave: Narrative of Solomon Northup, a Citizen of New-York, Kidnapped in Washington City in 1841, and Rescued in 1853″ (you can even read Northup’s original writings online).

Fox Searchlight is backing the project and has set 12 Years a Slave to open on December 27th, 2013, which allows it to slip under the wire just in time to qualify for the major awards ceremonies that will be held in 2014. It sits alongside a few other prestigious historical and/or biographical films as early awards contenders this year – given it has joined the Weinstein Company-backed Grace of Monaco and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom during the final quarter of 2013 (Grace, in fact, opens the same day as 12 Years a Slave).

Three-time Golden Globe-nominee Ejiofor (whose mainstream movie acting credits include Serenity, 2012 and Salt) headlines the 12 Years a Slave cast, which counts Fassbender among its ranks.

Here’s an official description of the plot setup:
SOLOMON NORTHUP (Chiwtel Ejiofor), an educated black man with a gift for music, lives with his wife and children in Saratoga, New York. One day, when his family is out of town, he is approached by two men claiming to be circus promoters. Solomon agrees to travel with them briefly, playing the fiddle while they perform. But after sharing a drink with the men, he awakens to find he has been drugged and bound and faces a horrifying reality: he is being shipped to the South as a slave.

Rounding out the supporting cast are such people as Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness), Paul Giamatti (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Asylum), Paul Dano (Looper), Scoot McNairy (Argo) and Michael Kenneth Williams (Boardwalk Empire), who drew from a script co-written by McQueen and John Ridley (Three Kings, Red Tails).

12 Years a Slave is similar to last year’s Oscar-winning Lincoln (in terms of the great cast and creative talent), but its explicit focus on American slavery – coupled with McQueen’s more unflinching and raw storytelling tendencies – should prevent it from reaching anywhere near the box office success equal to Steven Spielberg’s film. However, in terms of creative merits, McQueen’s picture has the potential to be just as captivating (if not more so). [source]

Jane Got a Gun has been hit by a round of musical chairs. Michael Fassbender, who was to have played the male lead in the Natalie Portman-led Western, has exited the movie, while Joel Edgerton, who was on board to play the villain, will step into the hero role. Jude Law, in the meantime, has signed on for the villain, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Gun centers on a woman whose outlaw husband returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive. When her husband’s gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job, she is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm.Edgerton will now play the ex-lover while Law will be the leader of the gang that lays siege to the homestead.

The moves come a couple weeks before the start of shooting in New Mexico. Sources say the actor rotation came about due to Fassbender’s schedule conflict with his upcoming shoot in Montreal for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Gun has been pushed back several times and now is scheduled to begin filming in April.
Scott Steindorff, Aleen Keshishian and Terry Dougas are producing. Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) is directing.

Edgerton, who next appears in the all-star adaptation of The Great Gatsby, is repped by CAA, Shanahan Management and Hirsch Wallerstein. Law is coming off a starring turn in Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects and just wrapped shooting Wes Anderson’s latest, the ensemble comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel. He is repped by WME, LBI Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman. (source)

Michael Fassbender shocked the cast of British sitcom ‘Life’s Too Short’ by arriving on set to watch his close pal Val Kilmer film a cameo appearance.

Michael Fassbender visited the ‘Life’s Too Short’ set.

The Hollywood actor has been hanging out behind the scenes of Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s BBC Two sitcom after being invited by Val Kilmer, who has a cameo role on the show’s last episode.

A source told DigitalSpy: “Fassbender and Kilmer were just hanging out with everyone on set and really enjoying themselves.

“It was amazing to see these Hollywood stars on the same set as the show’s British TV stars like Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and Shaun Williamson.”

Val reportedly asked producers whether he could bring a friend along and the cast and crew were gobsmacked when the high profile ‘Shame’ actor turned up.

However, the show’s diminutive star Warwick had no idea who Michael was when he first showed up.

He confessed: “I didn’t know it was him. He was just introduced to me as Michael and I just said, ‘Alright Michael’. He probably just thinks I’m really cool now.”

The mockumentary follows ‘Harry Potter’ actor Warwick in his daily life and sees British funnymen Ricky and Stephen appear in supporting roles as themselves.

The popular comedy has featured a host of celebrity cameos in the past including Liam Neeson, Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp. [source]

The National Entertainment Collectible Association (NECA) announced today on their Facebook page that their second series of action figures based on the hit Sci-fi movie “Prometheus” are now hitting store shelves.

David the android played in the film by German actor Michael Fassbender is the star of this second series. NECA managed to capture the actor’s likeness perfectly in plastic. The David figure comes complete in his space suit with a detachable helmet. Also included are two interchangeable head sculpts and a personal computer accessory.

NECA wisely chose to also include the movie finale’s proto Xenomorph named Deacon. Prometheus is a loose prequel to director Ridley Scott’s “Alien” franchise and this figure represents an early form of the original film’s antagonists created by the Engineers. Deacon features a movie accurate sculpt and some great articulation. Deacon comes with a screaming Engineer head and removable helmet that can be swapped out on the figure released by NECA in series 1. Two bendable snake aliens from the film are also included.

Check your local toy stores to pick up these great figures from NECA today. [source]

BERLIN — Colin Firth and Michael Fassbender’s Genius — based on A. Scott Berg’s National Book Award-winning biography Max Perkins: Editor of Genius — is sparking avid interest among independent distributors.

FilmNation has sold the film in a raft of key foreign territories, including to The Weinstein Co. in the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.
There’s no word on whether TWC will buy U.S. rights, but Harvey Weinstein’s shop would be a natural fit for Genius, having released the Oscar best picture The King’s Speech, for which Firth won the Oscar for best actor. TWC is one of the most aggressive players in the awards space, and Genius could well be a contender considering its pedigree.
Genius recounts the real-life relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Fassbender) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth), who developed a tender, complex friendship that changed the lives of both men forever.

CAA is arranging financing for Genius and is representing domestic rights. FilmNation began shopping the project to foreign buyers last fall and will continue sales at the European Film Market in Berlin, which got underway today.
Michael Grandage — who recently served as the artistic director of London’s famed theatre the Donmar Warehouse — will direct from an adapted script by John Logan and hopes to begin shooting in early 2014.
James Bierman is producing for the Michael Grandage Co. Bierman served as executive producer at Donmar and formed MGC with Grandange.
In addition to the deals for the U.K., Australia and New Zealand, Genius has sold to Mars in France, Central Partnership in C.I.S., Revolutionary Releasing in Poland, Paradiso Film in Benelux, LEV Cinemas in Israel, Italia Film International in the Middle East, Mis Label Aps in Scandinavia, Elite Film AG in Switzerland, Sun Distribution Group in Mexico, Edko Film Ltd. in Hong Kong, Gaga in Japan, Shaw in Singapore, Dreamwest Pictures in South Korea, Studio Solutions Group in Taiwan and Ster Kinekor Entertainment in South Africa.
The sale to Telepool and Senator in Germany was previously announced. [source]
