Irish Eye on Hollywood:

In June, look for Colin Farrell to lead a strong cast in the U.S. Civil War drama The Beguiled, based on a novel by Irish American writer Thomas P. Cullinan. The Beguiled tells the story of a wounded Union soldier named Simon McBurney (Farrell) who stumbles upon an isolated school for girls and ends up exposing them to more of the outside world than they are perhaps prepared to see.

The Beguiled also stars Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning and will be directed by Oscar-winner Sofia Coppola. It hits theaters in late June.

Kidman and Farrell will also team up later this year for the film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, which will be directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the Greek director who teamed up with Farrell in the odd (but celebrated) recent movie The Lobster. ♦
