Hollywood A-lister Michael Fassbender filming in Northumberland
26 Feb 2014 12:02

Oscar nominated Michael Fassbender is in Bamburgh for new film Macbeth

Hollywood A-lister Michael Fassbender is in the North East bringing Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth to the big screen.

The Bafta and Oscar nominated actor, most recently seen by millions in 12 Years A Slave, is playing the title role opposite French actress Marion Cotillard.

Welcoming the superstars, fellow actors and a crew of almost 200, Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland has been turned into a shanty town as trailers and marquees have gone up in preparation for this week’s two-day filming.

With filming along the impressive Northumberland coastline ongoing, the historic venue will feature as Macbeth’s castle in the film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy which also stars Paddy Considine and David Thewlis.

The production by StudioCanal and Film4 will film in England and Scotland for the next seven weeks.

Chris Calvert, director at Bamburgh Castle, said: “Mr Fassbender has been around the castle. It is incredibly exciting and a real buzz to be around these large productions.

“They were here setting up last week before filming. I came to work and the car park had been turned into its own shanty town with trailers and marquees.

“Something like this has a knock on effect on the whole village. It has a crew of almost 200. They have hired the pavilion and when not filming are using the facilities Bamburgh has. It has a huge impact on the whole area.

“It is phenomenal to have something like this being filmed at the castle. They have been filming outside with the castle as the backdrop before moving to film inside the grounds. The castle will be on big screens across the world and that is great for us and the region.”

Michael Fassbender is just days away from finding out if he’s been selected as winner of the Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the Oscars for 12 Years A Slave.

He is going up against Bradley Cooper in American hustle, Jonah Hill in The Wolf of Wall Street and Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club.

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard set to be in Ely next week

Michael Fassbender. Michael Fassbender.

Movie fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of Hollywood stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in Ely next week.

Scenes of the hugely-anticipated new film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy, Macbeth, are being shot at Ely Cathedral - and filming gets underway on Thursday, March 20.

The film stars Oscar-nominated Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender and French actress Marion Cotillard, and according to the Casting Network Ltd, the Surrey-based firm appointed to recruit extras for the film, Fassbender will definitely be at the cathedral.

Speaking to Ely News exclusively last month, Lesley Gogarty, the casting firm’s director, said: “Banquet scenes for Macbeth are being filmed inside the cathedral’s Lady Chapel from Thursday, March 20 to Saturday, March 22.

“Fassbender is definitely appearing in those scenes and it is highly likely that Cotillard will be too.”

The film is being directed by Justin Kurzel and it is the seventh time the cathedral has been used as a movie location.

Hundreds of extras were required to feature in the film, although because it is set in Scotland in medieval times, the criteria was quite strict, including the need for men to have a full beard and women to have very long hair with no obvious die.

A spokesman for Casting Network Ltd said that all roles had been filled but said he was unable to confirm how many, if any, had been secured by local people. A spokeswoman for the cathedral said she was unable to comment on the filming due to confidentiality agreements.

The filming comes just months after scenes for blockbuster Jupiter Ascending, starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum, were filmed at the cathedral.

Fassbender earned a 2014 Academy Award nomination for his role as slave owner Edwin Epps in 12 Years a Slave. Cotillard has starred in a whole host of films, including La Vie en Rose, The Immigrant and Furia.

Filming for Macbeth is ongoing at Ely Cathedral - although none of the Hollywood stars have yet been spotted.

Banquet scenes for the hugely-anticipated new adaptation of the William Shakespeare tragedy are being shot inside the cathedral’s Lady Chapel.

Filming started on Thursday and according to the Ely Cathedral website, the Lady Chapel will be closed to visitors until Monday.

Today (Friday), the entire cathedral is closed during the afternoon and tomorrow (Saturday), the cathedral will be shut from 12pm onwards.

On Sunday, the cathedral, which has now been used as a major movie location seven times, will be open to the public, although the Lady Chapel will remain closed.

As previously reported, the film stars Hollywood actor Michael Fassbender and actress Marion Cotillard, although neither are believed to have been seen entering or leaving the cathedral.
