Michael Fassbender courted for controversial assassination flick

Warner Bros wants Michael Fassbender to star as former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko in their drama Londongrad.

According to Deadline, Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) is in talks to helm the pic.

Litvinenko was fatally poisoned in 2006 with polonium-210. Before he passed away, however, the bed-ridden Litvinenko accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of orchestrating the hit.

Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski’s Infinitum Nihil will produce, alongside Graham King (The Departed).

Discuss: If Hunger told us anything, Fassbender is damn good at death-bed acting. Bring it on!
