Domhnall To Star In “The Little Stranger”?

Daily Mail is reporting that Domhnall will star and reunited with “Frank” director Lenny Abrahamson for “The Little Stranger“.

Domhnall Gleeson, who will star as a small-town doctor in director Lenny Abrahamson’s film version of Sarah Waters’ ghost story The Little Stranger.

The novel, set in the late Forties, has been adapted by Lucinda Coxon, who wrote the screenplay for The Danish Girl, Tom Hooper’s brilliant film about a different kind of marriage.

Abrahamson said he will make the picture in Britain next summer. ‘It’s an intelligent film that doesn’t have super-heroes or schlock,’ he told me.

Abrahamson already has a hit with the film Room, starring Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. It was very successful at the recent Telluride and Toronto film festivals. Room will be shown at the BFI London Film Festival on October 11 to 13.

Gleeson has some big movies coming up! He’s in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and The Revenant, from director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (who shot Birdman).

I’m hearing great things about Revenant, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Will Poulter.
