McGregor lands in future

Thesp to star in McMorrow-helmed pic

Ewan McGregor has signed on to star in “Franklyn,” a futuristic British movie by first-time writer-director Gerald McMorrow. Jeremy Thomas will produce.

Hanway Films will handle worldwide sales for the project, shooting next summer in the U.K.

Pic is a split narrative set simultaneously in contemporary London and in a future metropolis ruled by religious fervor. It’s the story of four lost souls, divided by two parallel worlds, on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates.

McMorrow is a commercials director whose surreal sci-fi short film “Thespian X” won the TCM Classic Shorts prize in 2002.

Visual effects will be created by London-based f/x house Double Negative.
