Frank

Early last fall, we learned that Michael Fassbender would team up with Domhnall Gleeson (son of Brendan Gleeson) for director Lenny Abrahamson's rock band comedy Frank. Just recently Maggie Gyllenhaal was listed to join that cast that also includes rising star Scoot McNairy, and now a first look photo from the film has emerged featuring her with Gleeson and an obscured Fassbender. The story follows a young wannabe musician (Gleeson), who discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric musicians led by the mysterious Frank (Fassbender) and his sidekick Clara (Gyllenhaal).

Here's the first photo from Lenny Abrahamson's Frank from ComingSoon:

Frank - First Look

Frank is based on a memoir by Jon Ronson turned into a fictional story loosely inspired by musicians Daniel Johnston, Captain Beefheart and Frank Sidebottom, the alter ego of musician and comedian Chris Sievey. Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did) is directing the film from a script by Jon Ronson (who also wrote the book The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). The story follows a young musician who joins up with a strange band led by the wild Frank (Michael Fassbender) and his terrifying right hand woman Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). The film is shooting but has no release date.

    Frank Sidebottom was a strange character, even for folk in Britain, it'll be interesting to see what folk make of him. It's got Maggie in it so that's good enough for me.

      Will he have a "Little Frank"?

    I never ever thought Michael Fassbender would be in a film as Frank Sidebottom, lol.
