Tilda Swinton, George MacKay and Stephen Graham will be starring in The End, a musical about the last human family from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer (The Act of Killing), Deadline has announced. Though very little is yet known of the project, Neon has taken North American rights for the film and production is set to begin in 2022.
Swinton will soon be seen in Joanna Hogg’s The Souvenir: Part II, Wes Anderson’s star-studded The French Dispatch, George Miller’s epic fantasy romance Three Thousand Years of Longing opposite Idris Elba, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Memoria about a woman who begins experiencing a mysterious sensory syndrome while travelling through the Colombian jungle. Her main singing credit is in Luca Guadagnino’s A Bigger Splash in which Swinton performs the Rolling Stones song “Worried About You” as well as the duet with Ralph Fiennes, “Miss Manhattan” (though the actress mostly whispers through that second one).
Graham is perhaps best known for playing Al Capone on Boardwalk Empire, though he most recently appears opposite Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson in Venom: Let There Be Carnage as Detective Pat Mulligan, with the possibility that he may return as comic book Spider-Man villain (and ally) Toxin. The actor also promises the show off his singing skills in the upcoming Matilda: The Musical from Netflix.
Meanwhile, best known for starring in the Oscar-winning 1917, MacKay will also soon be seen in Nathalie Biancheri’s genre drama Wolf. His singing talents are of course well-known, having starred in the 2013 musical Sunshine on Leith.
Stay tuned for more news on Oppenheimer’s The End as we get it.
