Exclusive: New Centurion Pic

Neil Marshall's latest film is Centurion, currently shooting in Surrey, and we've got a new picture from the film, with star Michael Fassbender (300, Hunger) on the run from some savage Picts.

Coming on the heels of the excellent The Descent and the rather less excellent Doomsday, this an interesting proposition. For one thing, here Surrey's doubling for Scotland*, more or less: the story sees a Roman legion venture north of Hadrian's Wall and encounter some very unfriendly natives. For another, it may feature dudes in leather skirts and helmets, but it's also a horror movie, with the Romans being picked off in the woods. And thirdly, it's the second film in a row for Marshall that centres around a team venturing through a wall into Scotland and really regretting it.

The film will be out late this year, but in the meantime there's more from Fassbender and Marshall, as well as a glimpse at female lead Olga Kurylenko, in this month's Empire, on sale April 23. I know, we're getting predictable. But it really is all in there.

*Although the film did also spend a big chunk of its shooting schedule in Scotland, so that's OK.
