    Inspired by the ongoing discussion in the Fassbender/Cotillard Macbeth thread…

    If you could cast an actor and an actress as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, respectively, for a film adaptation, who would they be? Feel free to throw in a director choice if you will.

    Mine would be Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright directed by David Fincher (you can probably where I got this from).

    I would love to see Spacey and Wright as the Macbeths…though I think they already are the Macbeths on House of Cards!
    I love the pairing of Fassbender and Cotillardnand I’m very much looking forward to this film wether it’s a success or not.

    Well, as you can tell by my username, I pretty much adore this play 

    I’d have to say for Macbeth, we need someone who can appear both gullible and vicious. The mentions of Kevin Spacey and Ralph Fiennes are good, but unfortunately they just seem too evil in this part, and I can’t see Kevin Spacey doing the role great justice because it would be too similar to House of Cards. Because of this, I’m going to say Hugh Laurie or Gary Oldman for Macbeth 

    For Lady Macbeth, it just has to be Tilda Swinton. No one commands the screen like Tilda Swinton, and she can play purest evil. Having her against someone like Fiennes or Spacey would be interesting, but having her against a more sensitive performance of Macbeth would make her seem even more evil, which is what she is essentially.

    Swinton and Oldman would be great.
    My previous two pairings were Fiennes + Blanchett, and Hardy + Chastain (or switch them up). I think Judy Davis or Samantha Morton would make a good Lady Macbeth too. Bertolucci, or Herzog as director.

    Lol. Love your unique suggestion.

    People are going to “judge me” too by this post (again)

    Age-appropriate Fanboy choices:
    Lady Macbeth: Sally Hawkins, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock

    I wouldnt recast Fassbender, although I’m not looking forward to  seeing a mixture of Jane Ayre and Shame from him.
    ETA: If Cotillard plays her the way Shakespeare intended, and with her innate skill, she is going to rock,

    Lol! I’m glad this makes you happy. Imagine what Hawkins could do with this role, and with Blanchett endorsing her……

    Love the Tilda Swinton idea. I would also love to see Vera Farmiga’s take. She can bring the dangerous sexual intensity.

    Tilda could win an Oscar if she were the Lady M. Or, she could be so damned good that she’ll be overlooked again, ala We Need to Talk About Kevin,
    And for an out there choice, I wonder how Catherine Zeta-Jones would fair. I think Anne-Marie Duff could nail this, and Rachel Weisz, can play anyone, and better than most.

    Lol. She’s gotta tone down the great.. be just good enough, or miss out again. 

    Swinton could win another Oscar (lead) if she signed up for a Bowie biopic.
