The Hollywood Reporter has today confirmed that production on Rupert's next film project, a reworking of Shakespere's tradgedy Macbeth, will begin in January.
In Enemy of Man, Rupert is rumoured to be taking the role of Rosse.
When asked about the part last year, Rupert commented:
"It's a period, kind of epic, version with horses and Scotland. I think it’ll be really cool. I get to ride a horse, and it’s going to be quite gory. A gory film...I’m looking forward to that."
If true to the story, Macbeth's cousin, Ross, is a Scottish noble who eventually turns on Macbeth, choosing to side with Malcolm and the English forces. Sean Bean will play the titular role of Macbeth, with Harry Potter alum Dave Legeno (Fenrir Greyback) also cast as Angus.
