Sean Bean Completes Shooting of Trailer for Macbeth Adaption Film Enemy of Man


Remember when our Sean played Macbeth live on stage?

It was fabulous! And for years after there was talk of & proposals for him to star in a film version.

I'm so pleased to hear that there is finally some concrete news!
Word on this Monday past was that Sean finished shooting a trailer for film hopeful Enemy of Man (also titled Come Like Shadows at one point), a Shakespeare's Macbeth adaption by Vincent Regan, Jennifer Lee Carell, Nick Saunders and Pete Travis, with Sean once again playing Macbeth. 

Other cast listed so far are: James D'Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Master & Command: Far Side, Nicolas Nickleby) as Banquo; Rupert Grint (Harry Potter films) as Rosse; Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire, This Is England, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Macduff; Charlotte Gainsbourg (The Science of Sleep, Melancholia, Jane Eyre) as Lady Macbeth (this part was originally tapped for Tilda Swinton); Neil Maskell, and Sam Spruell.

Here is the Enemy of Man IMDb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338258/
Updates on that page are sparse but now that I know something definite is in motion, I have added it to my Watchlist. Details are available on mobile & device apps. It has 2013 attached but that will likely change, hopefully next year!
The tagline so far: A war hero and the lure of ambition and decent into hell.

On the SBF Facebook page I posted 4 photo updates of Sean in armour that were kindly uploaded by Roopesh Parekh.
Here is the link to the original FB status: https://www.facebook.com/roopesh.parekh/posts/10200092460167296

Hope more production gets underway soon, can't wait to see the finished film!!!

UPDATE: SEAN WON!!! re Sean Bean Nominated for Best Male Actor at the Royal Television Society's Programme Awards 2012


As reported by several British media outlets, Sean, along with Lennie James and Oliver Lansley, have been nominated for Best Male Actor at the prestigious Royal Television Society's Programme Awards 2012. The awards will be given out at a ceremony on Tuesday 19 March at the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London.


Sean was nominated for his challenging & brilliant performance in BBC1's Accused episode "Tracie's Story," as English poetry teacher & transvestite Simon Gaskell / Tracie Tremarco. If you haven't yet seen this you need to! Excellent story by Jimmy McGovern, great cinematography & editing too.

It would be great to see Sean win this award!


UPDATE 19-3-2013

Here's a link to several pix taken after the show!
