Anthony Lucero’s next movie, which is based on his long poem The Clown. Set against the backdrop of a small traveling circus, the pic centers on a European clown and his 5-year-old daughter as they lead each other through the everyday mysteries of love, magic and loss.
Pål Sverre Hagen, Holliday Grainger, Keti Mchedishvili, János Derzsi, Harry Treadaway, Stacy Martin, Nikola Djuricko, Nutsa Kukhianidze and Jean-Marc Barr co-star in the pic, which is shooting in Tbilisi, Georgia, with Thor Halvorssen and Lucero producing and Terrence Malick and Ilene Feldman executive producing.
Great Expectations star Holliday Grainger, recently on screens in Cinderella and The Finest Hours, is attached to star in Animals, which marks Australian director Sophie Hyde’s first film following Sundance and Berlin winner 52 Tuesdays in 2014.
“I’m delighted to find this kind of material and so thrilled to be collaborating with the compelling Holliday Grainger who I believe will seriously impress with this fearless and fun leading role.”
Brocklehurst commented: “Animals is a furiously funny and filthy story about the choices that young women make: who their allies are, which female ‘role’ they will choose to play, and how they will manage their own bodies and behaviour against social scrutiny.”
Grainger is represented by Troika, WME and managers LBI Entertainment. Hyde is repped by UTA and managers Mosaic while Emma Jane Unsworth is represented by Curtis Brown.
