It seems “Albert Nobbs” director Rodrigo Garcia is starting the new year off with a brand spanking new project! He will helm and pen the script for THE LAST DAYS OF THE DESERT which has Ewan McGregor, Tye Sheridan and Ayelet Zurer starring.
The plot is being kept under wraps, but I bet you a million bucks it takes place in a desert! Ok, fine, don’t laugh. McGregor will play Joshua, Sheridan will play The Boy and Zurer will play The Mother. Who those characters are and how they relate to each other remains to be seen. Julie Lynn, Bonnie Curtis and Wicks Walker are producing with Allison Avery Jordan executive producing.
Garcia most recently helmed the pilot for Fox’s “Delirium” and the Glenn Close starrer “Albert Nobbs.” He also wrote and directed “Mother and Child”, “Nine Lives” and “Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her” (which was his first feature directing gig).
