The cast also includes Irish actress Bronagh Gallagher (‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘The Commitments’) and will also shoot in Berlin when it wraps in New York.

The film tells the story of Max (Skarsgard), a married writer who goes to New York to promote his new novel, where he meets Rebecca (Hoss), with the two spending the weekend together in Montauk.
