- Domhnall Gleeson, his brother Brian Gleeson, Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris are in talks to join Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in Paramount’s untitled domestic drama.
Darren Aronofsky is on board to direct from his own script, which centers on a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home and disrupt their tranquil existence.
Aronofsky and his partners at Protozoa Pictures, Scott Franklin and Ari Handel are producing. The studio is planning to star production in June.
Domnhall Gleeson is best known for appearing as Bill Weasley in the final two “Harry Potter” films and as the villainous General Hux in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The Irish actor also appeared in three other notable 2015 releases — “Ex Machina,” “The Revenant” and “Brooklyn” — and has joined Netflix’s “A Futile and Stupid Gesture” about the founding of National Lampoon.
Pfeiffer starred with Robert De Niro in Luc Besson’s 2013 crime thriller “The Family,” with the duo portraying a mafia couple in a witness protection program.
Brian Gleeson’s highest-profile role came in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Paradigm reps the Gleesons. Pfeiffer is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Hirsch Wallerstein. The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
