Michael's next role: A Single Shot

Much anticipated news has finally arrived today! [Edited to add original Variety report.] We have information about Michael Fassbender's next big Hollywood role in a movie titled, 'A Single Shot'. Here is what has been released about this film:

Fassbender takes aim with 'Shot'

Pic also stars Whitaker, Macy, Church

LONDON -- Rising star Michael Fassbender has boarded helmer David Jacobson's thriller "A Single Shot" opposite Forest Whitaker, William H. Macy and Thomas Haden Church.

Pic is set to start lensing in Ontario in January next year.

Hanway Films is selling international rights, with CAA co-repping the project's North American distribution rights.

CAA and WME are arranging financing for the project, in which Fassbender plays a poacher who finds himself on the run from a gang of hardened killers.

Chris Coen is producing for London-based shingle Unanimous Pictures alongside Brad Arseneau. Kevin Hicks is exec producing for Northern United Film and Media, which is financing the pic.

Hanway's slate includes helmer David Cronenberg's "The Talking Cure," Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page and Liv Tyler starrer "The Super" and Jon Amiel's Charles Darwin biopic "Creation."

Fassbender, whose bravura turns in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds" and Andrea Arnold's "Fish Tank" are generating awards season buzz, is repped by Michael Cooper at WME and Conor McCaughan at Troika.

Excellent! it will be filmed in Ontario, and that means most likely Toronto, and you know how close that is to me. So according to this, Michael will be running for his life from a bunch a bad asses. Sounds good to me.
