After news broke yesterday that rising-fast Australian director Justin Kurzel would direct Michael Fassbender as Macbeth
for the producers of The King's Speech
, we heard the reveal of who would play Lady Macbeth wasn't far away. Well, turns out that day is today, with Screen Daily breaking the news
that Black Swan
herself Natalie Portman will play the scheming wife.
The film, which will be an Australian-UK co-production, is set to shoot later this year. Word is Kurzel's take on the Bard's play will be highly visceral with extended brutal battle scenes.
