Chance indeed crowned him.



Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender will be keeping busy playing the lead in the Scottish play, according to We have to write it that way, because it's bad luck for actors to say Macbeth. Whoops, we messed that one up.

The site say Fassbender will be in the latest version of William Shakespeare's epic murderfest, directed by Snowtown's Justin Kurzel and produced by The King's Speech company See Saw. There's no word on casting for Lady Macbeth yet, but we'd like to suggest Amanda Bynes, 'cause she cray-cray.

This version is supposed to focus on a lot of action and battle scenes, so even people who never bothered to learn 13th-century English can dig it. Either way, it makes way more sense than Prometheus.
