Hunger Games star Michael Fassbender has told his family that he will be filming a role in his upcoming Oscar-nominated film, which is being directed by his brother.
Speaking at a news conference in London, Michael, 27, said he was “overwhelmed” by the film’s success, and was looking forward to returning to his role of ‘Champion of the First Republic’ in the film.
“It’s a big, big deal,” he said.
Michael said the film, titled The Battle of the Bastards, would be released in theaters in February, but his role as the father of one of the main characters will not be revealed until the film is screened at the Oscars on Sunday.
In the film set in 1805, the father is killed by the rebel army of the British Royal Army, and his son and his family are forced to fight for the British crown against the French.
“We’ve got a whole new storyline,” he added.
“We’ve created a whole story, we’re doing the first draft of the script.”
“The Battle of Bastards” tells the story of three siblings who were raised by British soldiers in what is now the United Kingdom.
The siblings are now exiled to a remote island in the Indian Ocean, where they live in relative safety.
When the British soldier is killed in the conflict, the family decides to set out on their own and form a new country.
“I’m really excited about the script, I’m really stoked about what it’s going to be,” Michael said.
Hunger’ sequel will see Fassbenders brothers playing British soldiers and the story will take place in the same period as the first film. “
‘Hunger Game’ is a great story, and the script is great, but I think it’s a great movie as well, so we’re excited to work on it.”‘
