A24 has set a Nov. 3 release date for The Killing of a Sacred Deer, starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman and written and directed by Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. A24, which picked up domestic rights to the project at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, also released Lanthimos’s last film, The Lobster, which also starred Farrell and was nominated for a best original screenplay Oscar.
Lanthimos‘ new film will have its world premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. It’s one of four Kidman films at the fest.
Joining Farrell and Kidman in The Killing of a Sacred Deer are Alicia Silverstone and Bill Camp. In the psychological revenge thriller, Farrell plays a successful surgeon who attempts to integrate a teenager into his family, but when the teen’s actions grow increasingly sinister, the doctor is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.
The film’s Nov. 3 release will see it open opposite the wide releases of Disney’s Marvel movie Thor: Ragnarok, STX’s holiday-themed sequel A Bad Moms Christmas and Paramount’s crime comedy Suburbicon, directed by George Clooney.
