Michael Fassbender Saddles-Up For Slow West
Some films take years to start production, others simply take a matter of weeks. This is the case for John Maclean’s new full-length feature ‘Slow West‘. The director reunites with Michael Fassbender after collaborating on two shorts, Pitch Black Heist and Man On A Motorcycle.
Fassbender was penned to play a role in Lynne Ramsay’s western ‘Jane’s Got A Gun‘ alongside Natalie Portman earlier this year. With John Maclean at the helm of the project, we think it would be wrong to assume that this film will be a straight – western, in fact, we’re looking for more plot twists that we’re even prepared to count.
Filming began yesterday and despite that the film is set in Colorado, shooting will be taking place in both New Zealand and Scotland. Michael is to play a mysterious traveller by the name of Silas.
Other members of the cast include Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Mendelsohn and Caren Postorius. The picture is produced by Film4.
