Oh I like the way this sounds... Via Variety:
Brit artist-turned-helmer Steve McQueen is reuniting with thesp Michael Fassbender for his second directorial effort, "Shame," ...
"Hunger" won the Camera d'Or at Cannes in 2008 and the Gucci Prize at Venice. Pic starred Fassbender as Irish Republican hunger striker Bobby Sands in the infamous Maze prison.
... Fassbender will play Brandon, a 30-something man living in New York, who is unable to manage his sex life. The drama, penned by McQueen and "Brick Lane" scribe Abi Morgan, will examine the nature of need, how people live their lives and react to the experiences that shape them.
Lensing will begin in January.
... " 'Shame' will tell a modern story that is deeply honest and provocative."
