    Not coming out until 2013, but Steve McQueen's (Hunger, Shame) next movie is also about slavery.

    The cast includes Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Paul Dano, Taran Killam, Paul Giamatti, Garrett Dillahunt, and Michael K. Williams.

    I thought Steve McQueen was dead.

    Steve McQueen has already directed 2 masterpieces (his only 2 films) so with no other knowledge of the film I'm already sold. The Fassbender/McQueen pairing has been one of the best actor/director pairings in recent years.

    A lot about Shame has stuck with me, but perhaps the biggest was the "you can pour" line because it made me think "Why didn't I ever think to do that, even if I could never say it as cool as he did." And now I can't use that gimmick.

    I think the biggest name I remember is Sarah Paulson from American Horror Story and Studio 60.

    He really should be forced to change his name.

    He doesn't earn the name until he drives recklessly through San Francisco or he escapes a German prison camp.

    He earned his name with Hunger alone.

    Looks pretty solid, I'm in. In spite of stupid Paul Giamatti.

    It looks good; I just hope they don't try to relate the conditions of that era with our modern era.
