Oscar winning Australian actress Nicole Kidman will join the cast of Irish co-production ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’, which is being produced by Element Pictures.

She joins the cast to play the wife of Colin Farrell’s character. Farrell will play a brilliant surgeon whose attempts to bring a troubled teenager into his dysfunctional family takes an unexpected and sinister turn.

Kidman has previously won an Oscar for playing Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry’s 2002 drama ‘The Hours’ and she also received nominations for ‘Moulin Rouge’ and ‘Rabbit Hole’.

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.

‘Sacred Deer’, which was developed by Element and Film 4, is scheduled to shoot in August.

Element, Farrell and Lanthimos were also behind Irish film ‘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 earlier this year, where it topped the specialty box office, scoring this year’s best per theatre average opening in any film category.
