“1917” breakout George MacKay and “The King” actress Lily-Rose Depp have signed to star in “Nocturnal” writer-director Nathalie Biancheri’s “Wolf”.
The story follows a young man whose distraught family send him to a clinic which specialises in the treatment of his disorder – species dysphoria. He believes he is a wolf trapped in a human body, and is put with patients who all self-identify as another species.
Depp is another patient, an enigmatic Wildcat, and the pair are forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of ‘curative’ therapies at the hands of ’The Zookeeper’.
Barry Keoghan was previously attached to the Mackay role. Jessie Fisk produces and filming begins in Ireland this April.
