2016 should be a pretty big year for Michael Fassbender. The actor has X-MEN: APOCALYPSE out on May 27, as well as ASSASSIN'S CREED on December 21, and THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS, director Derek Cianfrance's THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES follow-up, is also expected to hit theaters sometime next year. A new image from the latter upcoming film has been released, featuring Fassbender and EX MACHINA actress Alicia Vikander.

Cianfrance directed the adaptation of the M.L. Stedman novel of the same name from his own script, and it also stars Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hayes (ANIMAL KINGDOM), Caren Pistorius (SLOW WEST) and Benedict Hardie (THE WATER DIVINER).

Book synopsis from Amazon:

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.

Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

Although THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS doesn't have a set release date yet, it could open as early as Spring 2016.
