Natalie Portman out, Marion Cotillard in for ‘Macbeth’ starring Fassbender
It seems that Natalie Portman will not be playing opposite Michael Fassbender in StudioCanal’s version of Macbeth. Now Marion Cotillard will be joining the cast, and production on the film will begin this January.
Marion Cotillard certainly has the resume for such a role, the young Oscar Winner will take on the role of Lady Macbeth, the film will be directed by Justin Kurzel. As we reported earlier this year, Fassbender has been chosen for the role of Macbeth. The same team that produced ‘The King’s Speech’ (Iain Canning and Emile Sherman) are producing this particular Macbeth remake.
More information on the rest of film, release dates, trailers and eventual premiere will be released when we get closer to production, which starts in early 2014.
