John C. Reilly Joins Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux In Yorgos Lanthimos’ 'The Lobster'

Fuck, pardon my French, this cast rules. You should know and love Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. He directed “Dogtooth” and “Alps” and quickly landed as a Cannes favorite and one-to-watch shortly thereafter. In case you’ve forgotten, he’s making his English-Language debut, it’s called “The Lobster” and it already features the star-studded cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux, Olivia Colman, Ariane Labed (“Alps”) and Angeliki Papoulia (“Dogtooth”).

John C. Reilly, The Lobster'

Fuck, pardon my French, this cast rules. You should know and love Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. He directed “Dogtooth” and “Alps” and quickly landed as a Cannes favorite and one-to-watch shortly thereafter. In case you’ve forgotten, he’s making his English-Language debut, it’s called “The Lobster” and it already features the star-studded cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux, Olivia Colman, Ariane Labed (“Alps”) and Angeliki Papoulia (“Dogtooth”). 

Today, four more actors were announced as additions to the cast including John C.Reilly, Scottish actress Ashley Jensen, Michael Smiley (perhaps best remembered for "A Field in England," "Kill List" and "The World's End") and Jessica Barden (“Tamara Drewe”).

The synopsis is pretty awesome too: a love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods. A desperate man escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live, and falls in love, although it is against their rules.

Most anticipated 2015? A major Cannes contender? Cannot contain your excitement? Yep, all of the above.
