Fassbender recently claimed that he will take a break from acting after the release of Ridley Scott's Prometheus.
He said: "After Prometheus, I just shut up shop. I'll give myself a break and I think everybody else. It's sort of like Fassbender overload here."
Shame will open in US cinemas in December and January 13 in the UK.
