Alicia Silverstone is set to join Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell in the cast of “The Lobster” director Yorgos Lanthimos’ follow-up effort “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” at A24, New Sparta Films, Irish Film Board and Film4.
Farrell stars as Steven, a charismatic surgeon forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart. The cause? The behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister.
Also onboard are Barry Keoghan (“’71”), Raffey Cassidy (“Tomorrowland”), Sunny Suljic (“The Unspoken”), and Bill Camp (“12 Years a Slave”).
Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou co-wrote the script while Lanthimos, Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe are producing. Shooting is underway in Cincinnati.
