The script is written, the locations prepared and the deer coaxed from its trailer (actually we're not sure there is an actual deer), and now The Lobster's Yorgos Lanthimos has started shooting his latest, The Killing Of A Sacred Deer. And as the cameras start cranking, Alicia Silverstone has joined the likes of Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman in the new movie.

With Lanthimos once again sharing script chores with co-writer Efthymis Filippou, Deer finds Farrell as Steven, a charismatic surgeon faced with making an unthinkable sacrifice after his life falls apart. It's all due to him taking a teenage boy under his wing, as the youngster's behaviour turns sinister. As per usual with Lanthimos, we'd expect a blend of offbeat dark comedy and intriguing characters.

The people bringing those characters to life also include Barry Keoghan, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic and Bill Camp. There's no release date on the books yet, but we'd expect it to show up next year.
