I know, I know, you’re still wondering where Michael Fassbender
is. Well, he’s apparently that
guy with that
thing on his head, standing next to Maggie Gyllenhaal
and Domhnall Gleeson
. This definitely looks strange, but hey – at least we can say that we have the first official image from Lenny Abrahamson
‘s upcoming comedy simply titled Frank
. Check out the rest of this report & take a better look at this (weird-looking) cast!
Written by Jon Ronson
and Peter Straughan
, and directed by Lenny Abrahamson
, the movie follows young wannabe
musician who discovers he’s bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank.
Oh, eccentric! See, that’s why Fassbender looks like an idiot!
is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson
and is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom
, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.
(obviously) plays Frank, Maggie Gyllenhaal
is his terrifying sidekick Clara, and Domhnall Gleeson
stars as that young wannabe musician named Jon. The rest of the cast includes Scoot McNairy
, Carla Aza
and Francois Civil
