Michael Fassbender is alleged to star in the lead role, as legendary Celtic warrior Cuchulain in the forthcoming epic movie ‘Irish Myths’.

The ‘Inglorious Basterds’ actor Michael Fassbender is allegedly preparing to tackle a legendary character in the upcoming movie ‘Irish Myths’. The Irish-German actor is believed to star in the lead role based on the story of legendary Celtic warrior Cuchulain in the potential epic movie. Michael has teamed up with Ronan Bennett who served as the screenwriter of ‘Public Enemies’ and are developing the movie about Celtic warrior Cuchulain.

As per the reports, the ‘X-Men: First Class’ actor will play the lead role, who would be the central character in the upcoming Ulster Myth Cycle epic series. The story of ‘Irish Myths’ is set in the northern Ireland, which is about King Conchobar an Ulaid tribe leader fighting against Queen Mebh the leader of Conncahta. The Celtic warrior Cuchulain is the most fearsome hero during the era, since he has semi-divine ancestry and superhuman combat skills. He is the only man who is capable of stopping the huge army of Mebh sent to steal Conchobar’s prized white bull.

The 34-year-old ‘Shame’ actor has also been set to produce the movie along with Ronan Bennett, through their London based production company, Finn McCool Films. However, the director has not yet been confirmed for the upcoming project. Michael Fassbender was recently seen in ‘Haywire’ opposite Channing Tatum and Gina Carano. He will next be seen in ‘Prometheus’ directed by Ridley Scott along with Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green and Ben Foster.
