Fiennes To Join McDonagh’s “Forgiven”

Ralph Fiennes is in talks to star with Rebecca Hall, Mark Strong and Saïd Taghmaoui in “The Guard” and “Calvary” director John Michael McDonagh’s “The Forgiven”.

An adaptation of the novel by Lawrence Osborne, the story deals with the reverberations of a random accident on the lives of an English couple, their friends and local Moroccans who converge on a luxurious desert villa during a decadent weekend-long party.

McDonagh and Elizabeth Eves will produce and filming begins early next year in Morocco. Fiennes previously worked with McDonagh’s brother Martin on “In Bruges”.
