Michael Fassbender is tipped for the lead role in a new gangster movie.

The 36-year-old actor is currently negotiating about the part in Trespass Against Us, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is set across three generations of the rowdy Cutler family, who live as outlaws. Michael looks set to play main character Chad Cutler, who is looking to escape his life of crime.

The film was penned by Alastair Siddons and will be directed by British filmmaker Adam Smith.

The Chemical Brothers will write and perform the original score for the movie.

German-Irish star Fassbender was previously nominated for Bafta and Golden Globe awards for the film Shame.

He is currently tipped for an Oscar nod for his performances in the films The Counsellor and 12 Years A Slave.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual.

This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
