MICHAEL FASSBENDER STILL WORKING ON EPIC 'IRISH MYTHS' MOVIE ON 8TH CENTURY IRISH HERO CUCHULAIN!

MICHAEL FASSBENDER
 'IRISH MYTHS' EPIC MOVIE PROJECT IS STILL ON!
Five years ago your spy informed you that Michael Fassbender is preparing an epic film on Irish hero CUCHULAIN. Speaking to British Digital Spy Fassy, who is currently portraying another hero from Assassins' Creed in cinemas, has revealed last week that he is still working on that project, but it seems the theme has spread to wider Irish mythology,  as a big screen movie now called IRISH MYTHS. The epic movie would be based on the rich world of ancient Irish mythology with Cuchulain, Gaelic parallel to Greek Achilles, being one of the characters from the world in which men and women fight as equals alongside each other and the connection to nature and the animal world is a very real one.
DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
 Cuchulain is the central character in the Ulster Cycle, an epic series of Old Irish legends that date from around the 8th century. Set in the northern part of Ireland, the saga relates the story of the Ulaid tribe headed by King Conchobar, and particularly its conflict with the rival Connachta tribe led by Queen Mebh. The most prominent figure in the legends is Conchobar's nephew Cuchulain, who has semi-divine ancestry and superhuman fighting skills. In the most famous story, known as the Cattle Raid of Cooley, he is the only man capable of resisting the vast army sent by Medb to steal Conchobar's prized white bull.

  1. I love Celtic mythology so "Irish Myths" would be right up my alley! I like Michael Fassbender too but lately his movies have not made full use of his talents, in my opinion.

    1. have they ever? He either plays in some silly overrated dramas which study sex to attract attention or in some sillyass actions movies like Prometheus. I did love that he put OCEAN BETWEEN US in his list of roles and also ASSASSIN'S CREED. And let us not forget how great he was in 300! Nobody, but Dezzy, remembers him from that one which also had my eternal lurv Tom Wisdom in it :)

  2. I don't know much about Irish mythology. This film would probably be a good one to see to learn a little more about it.
