Nicole Kidman is set to join Colin Farrell in “The Lobster” filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” for Element Pictures, Film 4 and A24.
Lanthimos co-wrote the script with Efthimis Fillipou and is directing the psychological revenge thriller which also contains a hint of the supernatural.
Farrell will play a successful surgeon who attempts to integrate a teenager into his family. When the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.
Kidman will play Farrell’s wife. Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe are producing and shooting aims to begin in August.
