Michael Fassbender has firmed up his next role, with the Kerry man playing a spy in the action thriller, 'Malko.'

The film is an adaptation of Gerard de Villiers’s best-selling action-spy series “S.A.S.,” which have sold a staggering 120 million copies globally and, at least in theory, have a built-in audience for a cinematic outing.

Eric Warren Singer (who was Oscar-nominated for American Hustle) will adapt, mostly at least, from the novel “Checkpoint Charlie.”

Fassbender will play Malko Linge, an Austrian spy for hire who enjoys the good things in life. No word on a director as of yet.
