Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman is in talks to join Colin Farrell in THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER. The psychological thriller is written and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, who recently worked with Farrell on The Lobster.
The film follows a successful surgeon who attempts unsuccessfully to integrate an increasingly sinister teenager into his family. Farrell is set as the surgeon, and Kidman would play his wife.
Production is expected to begin in August and hails from Element Pictures and Film4. Hanway Films brought the project to foreign buyers at Cannes. A24 is handling domestic distribution.
Element’s Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe produce.
Kidman stars in Genius with Colin Firth and Jude Law and will next be seen with Rooney Mara and Dev Patel in the upcoming Lion.
