Michael Fassbender & Steve McQueen
Michael Fassbender will be reunited with his ‘Hunger’ director, Steve McQueen in January 2011 when they commence production on the New York set of new project, ‘Shame’.

The feature film, written by Steve McQueen and Abi Morgan (Royal Wedding) will centre around Michael Fassbender’s character, a man in his 30s who is unable to control his sex life. Fassbender’s co-stars will include Carey Mulligan (An Education) and James Badge Dale (The Departed) and will shoot in New York for six weeks. Steve McQueen has also brought his ‘Hunger’ director of photography, Sean Bobbit back on board for the new feature.

Steve McQueen’s 2008 hit, ’Hunger’ starred Michael Fassbender as Irish republican hunger striker Bobby Sands. It led to McQueen being crowned Most Promising Newcomer at the 2009 BAFTAs where it was also nominated in the category of Outstanding British Film. The harrowing feature clocked up a further 32 wins including the Cannes’ Golden Camera award; six Irish Film and Television Awards; including Best Film and acting wins for both Michael Fassbender his co-star Liam Cunningham; several British Independent Film Awards, including that of Best Actor for Michael; EFA award of Best Discovery of the Year for Steve McQueen; and the Toronto International Film Festival Discovery Award.

‘Shame’ is being produced by Iain Canning for See Saw Films. Budget information for the feature is TBC but the feature has received £1 million from the UK Film Council. The film’s post work will be carried out in the UK and is due to be completed at the end of 2011. Momentum in the UK will be looking after the film’s distribution.
