I don’t know much what to tell you- I’m a little drained after sorting through pictures of these two.

Jist is that¬†Justin Kurzel is directing an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, set in the 11th century and now starring Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman. The The Snowtown Murders director is working off a script from unknowns¬†Todd Louiso (typically a TV actor) and Jacob Koskoff. It’s an indie project that will be looking for backers and a distributors for some time, so not anything the two are hopping on right away.

Portman is wrapped up in the Jane Got A Gun debacle from which Fassbender made a swift exit, but it will be good to see them on screen together. We’ll get a tease of their chemistry in the still Untitled Malick film that’s not To The Wonder or Knight Of Cups though, whenever that’s released.
