If there's any new project you should keep an eye on, this would be it.

In 2008, Steve McQueen made a stellar film about the Irish republican hunger strike and the slow death of striker Bobby Sands called Hunger. A relatively unknown actor was picked for the key role, a man with some TV credits under his belt like Band of Brothers and Hex, plus a rippling pec part as Stelios in Zack Snyder's 300. Michael Fassbender was the man, morphing his body in ways that would rival the likes of Christian Bale's Machinist, and adding acting chops to the affair that revealed there was a whole lot more to him than savage fighting, comic book style.

Now McQueen and Fassbender are reuniting for a new film called Shame.
