Late last year, we brought word that Michael Fassbender was adding another film to his hectic schedule, considering the lead in Adam Smith’s gangster drama Trespass Against Us. He’s officially on board, and will be joined by Brendan Gleeson, Rory Kinnear, Sean Harris, Lyndsey Marshal and Killian Scott{ =nofollow}.

Trespass, which Smith is directing from Alastair Siddons’ script, follows the stories of three generations of the criminal Cutler family, who live as outlaws. Their world includes illegal hunting, ram-raiding stately homes and making fun of police efforts to hunt them down.

But when eldest son Chad (Fassbender) is finally nabbed by the law, he’s torn between the guiding anarchy of his father (Gleeson) and what he thinks could be best for his own kids in the long run. Cue a battle of opinions that threatens to tear the family apart.

With a cast like this, Trespass Against Us certainly has a tempting setup, and Smith has also wrangled talent for behind the camera, with The Chemical Brothers on board to write and perform the score. It should all kick off shooting this summer.
