Michael Fassbender revealed he is looking forward to the challenge of playing Rochester in Jane Eyre.

The Inglourious Basterds star admitted it was daunting to take on a role that has been played by so many great actors before him, including Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier.

Fassbender said: "I do like that (a challenge) - it's nice to do things that scare the s**t out of you otherwise you just sort of end up getting comfortable."

The film will be directed by Sin Nombre's Cary Fukunaga and Alice In Wonderland star Mia Wasikowska will play Jane Eyre.

Fassbender said: "I'm really looking forward to it and Cary Fukunaga is a really interesting choice. Sin Nombre was one of my favourite films that I saw last year so I'm very excited to see what he can teach me."

The Hunger star was speaking at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards where he was named Best Supporting Actor for Fish Tank.

Asked if he would still appear in small British independent films now he had made it in Hollywood, Fassbender said: "I'm going to be working on Jane Eyre here next which is obviously going to be a British based production. I just like to go where the good work is and it's always been interesting for me to mix it up as much as possible and it's always down to the script and the filmmaker."
