Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz to Star in THE LOBSTER, the English-Language Debut of DOGTOOTH Director Yorgos Lanthimos

Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz are set to lead The Lobster, which will mark the English-language debut of Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos.  I’ve only seen Lanthimos’ previous two films, Dogtooth and Alps, and they’re incredibly weird.  Their plots’ defy easy description, and judging by THR’s synopsis, The Lobster sounds like it will be only slightly less nuts: “an unconventional love story set in a dystopian future where finding a partner is a matter of life or death.”  If you’re a fan of Lanthimos’ work, that probably makes you giddy, and I hope I’ll enjoy this one more than Dogtooth and Alps.

He’s certainly got a strong cast, which also includes Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, and Olivia Colman.  Lanthimos will also be re-teaming with actresses Ariane Labed (Alps) and Aggeliki Papoulia (Dogtooth).  Shooting begins on March 24th in Ireland.
