First-Look Photos Of Nicole Beharie & Michael Fassbender On “Shame” Set
Recall my last post about a week ago, speculating on whether Nicole Beharie was indeed co-starring opposite Michael Fassbender in Brit director Steve McQueen’s next project, titled, Shame…
Nicole was quoted in a December interview, stating, “I actually have a job coming up in February with an interesting director, Steve McQueen, that we’re shooting in the city. I can’t talk about it until it’s official.”
Well, there never was a follow-up announcement on whether she officially was cast in the role. I hadn’t read any reports since then that affirm that. So, I emailed the production company behind the film for answers. Their reply was vague. They wouldn’t confirm whether or not Beharie is indeed the film, but did say, “The shoot is well underway and casting complete.”
Ok. I’m not sure why they were being so secretive. If casting is complete, and shooting is underway, then it all should be public record.
But, regardless, as I was hoping would happen, on-set photos from the film have surfaced and, as you can tell from the images, Ms Beharie clearly is in the film.
To rehash… in the film, Fassbender plays a fellow by the name of Brandon, described as a 30-something man living in New York, whose addiction to pornography threatens to destroy his romantic life. He meets an “extremely beautiful,” “very confident,” black woman, with an “unwitting sexuality,” who is “clearly attracted to Brandon.” Needless to say, the black woman is played by Nicole Beharie. The pair apparently date, and eventually develop a relationship, although she is unaware of his inability to connect with a woman on more than a superficial level, thanks to his porn addiction! Drama naturally ensues.
The film should be out later this year, although no specific date has been announced.
