Content Editorjoined the cast for the adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High Rise. The duo will be acting alongside Tom Hiddleston, who was confirmed for the lead in February. The novel takes place in a luxury high-rise building. Minor power failures quickly affect the lifestyle of the tenants, who soon divide themselves into three classes: lower, middle, and upper. The classes combat each other and defend their ‘territories’. Some tenants enjoy the lack of social obligation and indulge in perverse desires. Hiddleston plays Doctor Robert Laing who is seduced by the appeal of the high rise and it’s creator, Anthony Royal (Irons). Throughout the course of the movie, Laing develops a relationship with Royal’s assistant, Charlotte (Miller). High Rise is set to begin filming in Northern Ireland in the July. Ben Wheatley is directing and collaborating once again with his wife and writer, Amy Jump, who will pen the script adaptation. Wheatley is very excited to work with Miller and Irons, saying, “I’ve been a fan of Sienna’s since seeing her heartbreaking role in Factory Girl. There’s a steely resilience in her performances, and I know she will be excellent in her central role in High-Rise… What can you say about Jeremy Irons? From Dead Ringers to Margin Call, Jeremy has been creating indelible performances. He’s one of our finest actors and it’s very exciting to work with him.” Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
