Irish At Cannes: Element’s ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ acquired by Haut Et Court for French distribution
17 May 2016 : Seán Brosnan
Colin Farrell will once again re-team with Yorgos Lanthimos and Element Pictures for ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer'
French distributor Haut Et Court have boarded Element Pictures and Yorgos Lanthimos film ‘The Killing of A Sacred Deer’, which re-unites them with ‘The Lobster’ actor Colin Farrell.

Element’s Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe will produce ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’; they also collaborated with Lanthimos on ‘The Lobster’ as well as producing the Oscar-nominated film 'Room'. Lanthimos will co-write (with Efthymis Fillipou) and direct the film, which follows a young man that needs to take revenge, a doctor that has to make a decision, and his family that must survive.

The film, which was developed by Element and Film 4, is scheduled to shoot in August.

Colin Farrell was announced the lead of ‘Sacred Deer’ last week. He previously starred in Element and Lanthimos’ surrealist drama ‘The Lobster’ which was acclaimed by critics and made over €1million in Ireland and the UK during its’ theatrical release last year. It premiered at Cannes in 2015 where it won a Special Jury Prize and it was released in the US last weekend, where it topped the specialty box office, scoring this year’s best per theatre average opening in any film category.
