George MacKay (1917) and Lily-Rose Depp (The King) are attached to star in genre film Wolf, which Bankside will launch sales on at the EFM.
Budgeted between $2-3M, the film comes from rising writer-director Nathalie Biancheri (Nocturnal). The Irish-Polish co-pro, which has corralled an impressive lead cast, is in pre-production. Jessie Fisk of Feline Films in Ireland is producing and shoot is due to take place in Ireland in coming months.
Set in a home of young people where the residents believe they are really animals rather than human beings, the allegorical movie about identity follows a character who thinks he is a wolf and despite the often humiliating treatment meted out to him by a doctor, cannot escape his own personal truth.
