Mockingbird Pictures and Division Films announce today that Ewan McGregor and Tye Sheridan have signed on to star in their co-production of Last Days In The Desert, which is written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs). Ciarán Hinds (There Will Be Blood) and Ayelet Zurer (Angels and Demons) round out the film’s cast as Sheridan’s Father and Mother.
Last Days In The Desert follows a holy man and a demon—both roles played by McGregor—on a journey through the desert. An encounter with a family struggling to survive in this harsh environment forces the holy man to confront his own fate.
The film is produced by Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis of Mockingbird Pictures along with Wicks Walker of Division Films, who financed the picture in collaboration with recently shingled Ironwood Entertainment, with Aspiration Media and New Balloon in association. The film has commenced principal photography in the Southern California desert. »
