Alicia Silverstone Joins Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell in ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’

Alicia Silverstone has joined Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell in the cast of “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” Yorgos Lanthimos’ follow-up to “The Lobster.” A24 is on board as U.S. distributor.

The cast of the film, which has started shooting in Cincinnati, also includes Barry Keoghan (“’71”), Raffey Cassidy (“Tomorrowland”), Sunny Suljic (“The Unspoken”), and Bill Camp (“12 Years a Slave”). Lanthimos produces alongside Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element Pictures, who were among the producers of “The Lobster” and Oscar winner “Room.” Lanthimos and his regular collaborator Efthymis Filippou co-wrote the project.

“Farrell stars as Steven, a charismatic surgeon forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister,” according to a press statement.

The film is financed by Film4 and the Irish Film Board, who were financiers of “The Lobster,” and New Sparta Films. The project was developed by Element Pictures and Film4. HanWay Films is worldwide sales agent.

“The Lobster” won the Cannes Jury Prize in 2015, and Lanthimos’ “Dogtooth” won Cannes’ Prix Un Certain Regard in 2009, before going on to receive an Oscar nomination for foreign-language film.
