Michael Fassbender is a ridiculously busy man who seems to be on a mission to appear in as many films as humanly possible. He’s just signed up for another one called Frank, which Variety reports he’ll star in alongside Domnhall Gleeson.
If Fassbender has ever dreamed of being a rock star, this will allow him to fulfill that ambition, as he’ll play the leader of an eccentric pop band, who’s joined by Gleeson’s young wannabe musician. Perhaps unsurprisingly the younger man finds himself in over his head.
Jon Ronson, who wrote the book The Men Who Stare At Goats, has come up with the script along with Peter Straughan, while Lenny Abrahamson is set to direct. It’ll start shooting sometime next year.
