Irish Eye on Hollywood:
Summer Is for Fassbender and Blockbusters

Michael Fassbender

April / May 2016

Another big book coming to the big screen (but not until 2017) is Jo Nesbo’s thriller The Snowman. Irish Academy Award winner Michael Fassbender is slated to star as sleuth Harry Hole in this Norwegian thriller. Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Gainsbourg will also appear in The Snowman. Fassbender also has as many as five films slated for release this year, including a number that have been slow in the shooting and production process. These include Weightless, from the infamously slow-working director Terrence Malick, as well as Trespass Against Us, a British crime drama also starring Brendan Gleeson. Fassbender movies that should be right on track in terms of timing – because they are gigantic popcorn blockbusters – are X-Men: Apocalypse (slated for release right before Memorial Day in May) and Assassin’s Creed (a Christmas 2016 movie). ♦
