The breakout star of the past year or so, Michael Fassbender (PROMETHEUS), has added yet another project to his ever-filling plate. This one, though, also marks the directorial debut of the great Brendan Gleeson (IN BRUGES).

The film, a passion project of Gleeson's and one he's been working on for years now, is called AT SWIM-TWO-BIRDS. And Fassbender aside, it's already boasting quite the ensemble cast. The X-MEN: FIRST CLASS actor joins Gabriel Byrne ("In Treatment"), Colin Farrell (HORRIBLE BOSSES), Cillian Murphy (INCEPTION), Gleeson himself, and his own son Domhnall (TRUE GRIT). The story - an adaptation of the 1939 Flann O'Brien (a.k.a. Brian O'Nolan) novel of the same name - "follows a teenage student who populates his creative writing with important characters from his own life."

Gleeson, who acquired the rights to the book about seven years ago, is currently in the process of securing financing for the film and is hoping to start shooting during spring of next year.
Extra Tidbit: IN BRUGES was such a terrific little film.

Fair enough. IMO Farrell is an underrated actor who has given some great performances through his career. And it struck me as odd that he would choose Horrible Bosses being that Colin is not usually a comedic actor, sure In Bruges was funny but HB is a different type of comedy. And do you really think anyone reading this who didn`t know Farrell by name is suddenly going to have the light turn on when they hear Horrible Bosses, he doesn`t even look like himself. I mean its not even his movie,

It's kinda normal to reference a film that is actually in theater.

Are you really that petty that you are taking the time to complain about what movie George chose as a reference? I guess I'll be petty and tell you that your silly for being irritated with that. He could have said daredevil dude.
