Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) and Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur) have signed up for the English-language debut by Greek director Giorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth). The two Brit stars will join Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Lea Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) in the bizarre romantic drama The Lobster.
Set in a dystopian future, the film will follow a group of single men and women who are brought to a hotel and ordered to find a life partner within 45 days. Those who fail to are transformed into animals and released into the woods.
Lanthimos' last two features Dogtooth (a drama about life inside a gated community) and Alps (a drama about actors hired to impersonate the deceased) were strange, haunting and incredibly original. With a cast of such impressive actors The Lobster could be Lanthimos' most original and dark film yet.
The Lobster begins shooting in March 2014. »
