Colin Farrell is set to star in The Ballad Of A Small Player, directed by Edward Berger and produced by Netflix. Bergerís All Quiet on the Western Front won the Oscar for International Feature Film in 2023.

Oscar-nominated actor Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin) is set to star 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 ďa 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.Ē Production is expected to start later this year.

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 Bergerís 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).

Bergerís follow-up to All Quiet, Conclave, is set to release in November.
