Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Centurion, Centurion, Inglourious Basterds, Fish Tank) is to film in Luxembourg next year, in Brendan Gleeson’s “At-Swim-Two-Birds”.

Gleeson acquired the rights to Irish author Flann O’Brien’s acclaimed 1939 novel seven years ago and has adapted the period drama himself for the big screen. the budget is understood to be around USD 11m.

The film is likely to start shooting in spring 2012. It will be a co-production in yet another project which has benefited from the alliance between the Luxembourg Film Fund and the Irish Film Board which was formalised in Galway, Ireland, at the week-end. Alan Moloney’s Parallel Films (Irl) will co-produce along with Jani Thiltges’ Samsa Films.

Michael Fassbender is of German and Irish parentage. He was born in Heidelberg, Germany, and was raised Killarney, Co. Kerry, in south west Ireland. He joins an illustrious cast of heavyweight Irish actors which to date includes Brendan Gleeson himself (as well as directing), Gabriel Byrne, Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Domhnall Gleeson (Brenda Gleeson’s son).
