Alicia Silverstone Joins 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer,' Filming Begins
Yorgos Lanthimos made his mark with The Lobster, and his next American film has begun production with a solid cast that adds Alicia Silverstone into the mix.
The film co-stars Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman. It follows Steven (Farrell), "a charismatic surgeon forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behaviour of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister."
Silverstone plays the unnamed boy's mother while Kidman plays Steven's wife. The script is written by Efthymis Filippou.
The new film marks the director's second collaboration with Farrell, who starred in The Lobster.
