Chloe Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Andrea Riseborough and Christian Friedel have signed on to star in the dark fairytale feature "The White Circus".
The story revolves around a young pilot who crashes his plane in a war-torn town where he befriends a talking circus bear, falls in love with a cabaret singer and challenges a maniacal despot.
Acclaimed "Madame Tutli Putli" and "Higglety Pigglety Pop" animated short filmmakers Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski (aka. Clyde Henry) will make their feature directing debut on the project.
Terry Gilliam will executive produce, and shooting begins in Germany and Serbia in February 2014.
