Lenny Abrahamson and Domhnall Gleeson to re-team for ‘The Little Stranger’
29 Sep 2015 : Seán Brosnan
Lenny and Domhnall’s last film together was ‘Frank’ which won IFTA Awards for both men
Director Lenny Abrahamson and actor Domhnall Gleeson are to re-team next summer for the production of a “post-war ghost story” entitled ‘The Little Stranger’.

Abrahamson and Gleeson last collaborated on the acclaimed musical drama ‘Frank’, which was nominated for nine IFTA Awards earlier this year and won three, including Best Director for Abrahamson and Best Supporting Actor for Gleeson.

‘The Little Stranger’ will be an adaptation of the best-selling gothic novel by Sarah Waters, with a screenplay by Lucinda Coxon, who also wrote ‘The Danish Girl’ starring Eddie Redmayne. The novel is about a country doctor who makes friends with an old gentry’s family of declining fortunes who own a very old estate that is crumbling around them. The stress of reconciling the state of their finances with the familial responsibility of keeping the estate coincides with perplexing events which may or may not be of supernatural origin, culminating in tragedy.

Lenny Abrahamson’s current film ‘Room’ is busy doing the festival circuit as of late, screening to rapturous responses at both Telluride and Toronto. It picked up the People’s Choice Award at Toronto, which is often seen as giving films a significant boost going into Oscar season.

Gleeson has this year starred in acclaimed sci-fi drama ‘Ex Machina’ as well as having a significant role opposite Saoirse Ronan in John Crowley’s ‘Brooklyn’. He will also have roles in Oscar winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s upcoming ‘The Revenant’ opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as well as ‘Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens’, both scheduled for release later this year.
