Michael Fassbender is to take the lead in a new project written by Ronan Bennett, whose credits include Public Enemies and The Hamburg Cell.
Fassbender will star as Cuchulain, the central hero of the Ulster Myth Cycle in the film (one of the four branches of Irish mythology), which has a working title Irish Myths.
Development funding is already in place for the project which is being produced by Finn McCool Films, the London based production company set up by Fassbender and Bennett.
It is not yet known who will direct the project.
Fassbender is currently in Berlin promoting Haywire. He will next be seen in Prometheus for Ridley Scott.
So says "Screen Daily".
One wonder how this affects the plans for "Hound" being produced by Breakthru Films.
