Ewan McGregor Spends The Last Days In The Desert
With Mud's Tye Sheridan

Ewan-McGregor-Spends-The-Last-Days-In-The-Desert

Given his experience roaring around sandy climes with his mate for those Long Way bike-umentaries, Ewan McGregor seems like the sort of person to have around if you’re spending time in an arid wasteland. Mud’s Tye Sheridan will no doubt keep that in mind when he works on Last Days In The Desert with the actor.

After working from someone else's script for Albert Nobbs, writer-director Rodrigo Garcia is back pulling double duty for the indie drama, which will find McGregor playing two characters – a holy man and a demon – on a journey through the desert.

When they encounter a family (Sheridan, and parents played by Ciaran Hinds and Man Of Steel’s Ayelet Zurer) struggling to survive, the holy man must confront his own fate and figure out his life.

With Hanway Films adding this to their virtual stall at the European Film Market, Garcia is set to start the cameras rolling this month in the desert outside of Los Angeles. Word to the wise: sand and dirt will eventually get everywhere. It’s just best to learn to live with it.

McGregor was last seen as part of the August: Osage County ensemble and has just finished shooting Mortdecai with Johnny Depp. Sheridan is part of the cast of David Gordon Green’s Joe (out July 25) and has worked on Dark Places with Nicholas Hoult, Chloe Grace Moretz and Charlize Theron.
