Tilda Swinton and Colin Farrell will co-star in The Ballad of a Small Player, an upcoming film from All Quiet on The Western Front director Edward Berger under his first-look film deal with Netflix.

Oscar winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) will join Oscar-nominated actor Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin) in a new film from Edward Berger, the director behind the Oscar and IFTA award-winning All Quiet on The Western Front. Rowan Joffe (28 Weeks Later) will adapt the script that is based on a novel by Lawrence Osborne.

The Ballad Of A Small Player follows “a high-stakes gambler who decides to lay low in Macau after his past and debts catch up with him. Along the way he encounters a kindred spirit who might just hold the key to his salvation.” Production is due to start in Asia this summer.

Mike Goodridge (Triangle of Sadness) will produce through his Good Chaos banner along with Berger through his Nine Hours banner as well as Matthew James Wilkinson (Yesterday). This will be the first project under Berger’s creative partnership and global first-look film deal with Netflix.

Farrell can currently be seen on the recently-premiered Apple TV+ series Sugar, and he will reprise his The Batman role as Oswald Cobblepot in The Penguin on HBO Max later this year. He is currently shooting A Big Bold Beautiful Journey, directed by Kogonada (Columbus), in which he co-stars with Margot Robbie (Barbie).

Swinton stars in Joshua Oppenheimer’s The End, wrapped filming in Ireland last year and is expected to launch later this year.

Berger’s follow-up to All Quiet on The Western Front, Conclave, will be released in November.
