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”).

Distinct, odd, disturbing and hilarious are all words that can be used to describe the last two films from Greek helmer Yorgos Lanthimos. With 2009's Oscar nominated "Dogtooth" and 2011's "Alps," the helmer put his mark on the world of international cinema in a big way, all while managing to land on the kind of radars that directors of decidedly out-there cinema rarely attract. And now he's going all in on his most intriguing prospect yet, a star-studded, English language debut.

The last time we checked in with "Alps" and "Dogtooth" helmer Yorgos Lanthimos, the man had some big plans. Over the summer, the filmmaker revealed he had three possible projects brewing for his next movie including a book adaptation, a British period piece (as a director-for-hire-gig) and a sci-fi fantasy film. And now that the new year has rolled around, it looks like the latter project -- easily the most intriguing of the bunch -- is picking up some steam.
