Alicia Silverstone joins Colin Farrell in Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer


Alicia Silverstone

Colin Farrell & Yorgos Lanthimos worked together on The Lobster and they are reteaming for The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Lanthimos will also be working again with co-writer Efthymis Filipou and producers Element Pictures and Film4.

They already had Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan and Sunny Suljic. Joining the cast are Alicia Silverstone, Raffey Cassidy (Tomorrowland) and Bill Camp (Jason Bourne, 12 Years A Slave).

Inspired by a Euripides tragedy, the new film follows Steven (Farrell), a charismatic surgeon, and a teenage boy (Barry Keoghan) who seeks to integrate him into his broken family. When the boy’s actions become increasingly sinister, Steven’s ideal life starts to fall apart and he is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.

Kidman plays Farrell’s wife. Silverstone will play the mother of the boy.

Element’s Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe will produce the project.

“Sacred Deer” is one of a number of projects Lanthimos is developing with Element and Film4. Also in the works is “The Favourite” with shingle Scarlet Films. Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are attached to star in the historical drama, which follows the political machinations behind the scenes during the reign of Queen Anne.
