Michael Fassbender Heads To New Zealand

by Bianca London | October 22, 2013 12:45 | Edited October 22, 2013 12:50

The actor has joined Ben Mendelsohn and Kodi Smit-McPhee to begin production on ‘Slow West’.

While most were sleeping last eve, director John Maclean was fastidiously preparing for the first week of shooting to commence, for his feature film debut Slow West.

The quaint town of Twizel in Canterbury, New Zealand will go under the guise of a wild west Hollywood set and also double as the home for Michael Fassbender, who is teaming up with Maclean again after the two collaborated on the BAFTA award-winning short film Pitch Black Heist.

Rounding out the casting for the western are Aussies, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom, The Place Beyond The Pines) and rising actress Caren Pistorius (TV’s Offspring and Paper Giants: Magazine Wars).

Set at the end of the 19th century, Slow West follows the story of 17-year-old Jay Cavendish (Smit-McPhee) as he journeys across the American Frontier in search of the woman he loves, accompanied by a mysterious traveler named Silas (Fassbender).

Set in Colorado and the Scottish highlands, Slow West is filming on location in New Zealand and Scotland.

Co- Produced by Ian Canning and Emilie Sherman of See Saw Productions, the team who brought Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake to life earlier this year, have joined with DMC Film, Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan (Fassbender’s agent) and Rachel Gardner of Rachel Gardner Films.

The film was developed by Film4 and is co-financed by Film4, the British Film Institute, the New Zealand Film Commission and Fulcrum Media Finance. This is the second collaboration between Film4, the BFI, DMC Film and John Maclean following Pitch Black Heist.

Transmission Films will distribute the film locally in Australia and New Zealand, with international sales being handled by HanWay.

Michael Fassbender movie begins shooting

HOLLYWOOD FAVOURITE: Shame star Michael Fassbender will take a lead role in Slow West, currently being filmed in Twizel.

The small Canterbury town of Twizel is masquerading as America's wild west in a new feature film starring Hollywood heartthrob Michael Fassbender.

Filming for western Slow West began yesterday, set against the backdrop of the MacKenzie District.

The film is the feature debut of BAFTA award-winning director John Maclean, and will star Australian up-and-comer Kodi Smit-McPhee and Hollywood heavyweight Michael Fassbender, of Prometheus and X-Men fame, in the lead roles.

Hollywood actors Ben Mendelsohn and Caren Pistorius round out the cast.

The western-themed film is being co-funded by the film's developers Film4, as well as the British Film Institute, the New Zealand Film Commission and film and television finance company Fulcrum Media Finance.

Producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman from London and Sydney-based production company See-Saw Films, who also produced Jane Campion's Top of the Lake, are developing the movie with DMC Film, Fassbender's private production company.

Set in Colorado and the Scottish highlands, Slow West is being shot in both New Zealand and Scotland.

Maclean won a Best Short Film award for his 13-minute Pitch Black Heist at last year's BAFTAs, which also starred Fassbender.

Set at the end of the 19th Century, Slow West follows the story of a 17-year-old boy (Smit-McPhee), as he travels across the American Frontier in search of the woman he loves, accompanied by a mysterious traveller (Fassbender).

The creative team for the film boasts Academy Award-winning art director Kim Sinclair, Whale Rider costume designer Kirsty Cameron, and The Hobbit makeup artist Dannelle Satherley.
