Colin Farrell reunites with The Lobster director for new thriller

LOS ANGELES: Actor Colin Farrell and his “The Lobster” director Yorgos Lanthimos are to reteam for a dark new thriller “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”.


The 39-year-old actor won much acclaim for playing a single man forced to find love in the filmmaker’s quirky 2015 movie.

The Irish star will reportedly play a charismatic surgeon in the psychological and supernatural thriller.

The plot, which revolves around a teenage boy with behavioural issues, was co-written by Yorgos and his collaborator Efthymis Filipou, and the project set to start filming in the summer once the other key roles have been cast.

The movie was introduced to the movie market at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and it was quickly picked up by production company A24.
