Michael Fassbender being eyed to play a serial killer in Entering Hades
Michael Fassbender can be charming. Michael Fassbender can be dangerous. Can Michael Fassbender play a serial killer and would I pay to see that? Absolutely. The X-MEN: APOCALYPSE star is currently being eyed for that very role in ENTERING HADES, an adaptation of John Leake's novel which tells the true story of Jack Unterweger, "a celebrated Austrian journalist and bestselling author who led a double life investigating murders by day and killing by night – amassing a body count of 11 people across multiple continents." Yikes.
After being arrested after committing his first murder in 1974, Unterweger went on to became a celebrated author in prison before being released fifteen years later. He was held up as an example of rehabilitation but continued his murderous ways almost immediately after his release. BIRDMAN screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris is currently rewriting the script with an eye towards Michael Fassbender taking on the lead role in ENTERING HADES, which already has Fassbender attached to produce.
Michael Fassbender has quite a number of projects on the horizon, including X-MEN: APOCALYPSE on May 27, 2016, ASSASSIN'S CREED on December 21, 2016, ALIEN: COVENANT on August 4, 2017, and THE SNOWMAN on October 13, 2017.
