Maggie Gyllenhaal To Sing With Fassbender In ‘Frank’?

Rumour has it that both Michael Fassbender (PROMETHEUS, SHAME) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (THE DARK KNIGHT) have signed on in the new comedy FRANK directed by Leonard Abrahamson (WHAT RICHARD DID) . For both actors  this is an uncharacteristic move but interesting as they move away from more serious roles in the past. The comedy is about a young musician’s (Domhall Gleeson aka Bill Weasley in HARRY POTTER) entrance into a band of wild cards fronted by Fassbender as the lead singer, which should be a reason to check out the film anyway.

Gleeson’s character will be semi-autobiographical as his character is apparently modeled on a young Jon Ronson who wrote the screenplay along with Peter Straughan. We may not know much yet but it sounds intriguing with so many talented actors onboard. A release date has not been confirmed but with Fassbender and Gyllenhaal in the spotlight,  this is definitely one to keep an eye on.
