Steve McQueen's Shame Promo

Although it's not shooting, it is getting some industry promotion already. Collider snapped a shot from AFM of a the first bit of promo art, a sales poster you could say, for Hunger director Steve McQueen's new drama Shame starring, yet again, Michael Fassbender (who also played Bobby Sands in Hunger). In the film, Fassbender will play Brandon, a 30-something guy living in New York who can't manage his sex life. Sounds spicy and the poster definitely hints at that with some steamy Titanic-like hand-on-window action. The film "will examine the nature of need, how people live their lives and react to the experiences that shape them."

Steve McQueen's Shame

Written by McQueen and Abi Morgan (Brick Lane), Shame will examine the nature of need, how people live their lives and react to the experiences that shape them. HanWay Films is handling sales and Iain Canning is producing through See-Saw Films with Film4. Canning says he's "thrilled" to be producing a McQueen film, who he described as a filmmaker "not afraid to turn a mirror on the world." And to tease us more, HanWay's CEO says that "Shame will tell a modern story that is deeply honest and provocative." I'm very curious to see how this turns out. We're not sure when it will arrive though, as this won't start shooting until January!

    if this film is basically about the "need" for sex, it's whatever for me. Who doesn't fucking want sex, nothing interesting to explore. What WOULD be interesting however, is if McQueen explores "neediness"

      What a dumb reply.

    its a bit more than that. There's an issue of child molestation in there.
  • ryderup
    Oh.. they play out the child molestation card...

      Playing the child molestation card? Are you serious? As if that was some sort of commodity.
  • zed
    oh how groanworthy. I couldn't give a fuck about child molestation. It's been overdone, and seems like just another subject matter for just another 'artsy fartsy' film.
