Described as a new version of the Oedipus myth, Love Child by Todd Solondz will tell the story of a young child who wants to get rid of his father to have his mother all to himself. Things go wrong when a stranger shows up.

Todd Solondz from Réuni Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, who played in Yorgos Lanthimos’ excellent The Lobster in 2015. It’s still unclear whether Farrell will play the Father or the Stranger. However, judging by his performance also in The Killing of the Sacred Deer of Lanthimos in 2017, it’s not that hard to imagine the actor in such a singular and twisted role.

A scenario and a mysterious development therefore, to which the director Todd Solondz has provided details on the site ofIndiewire : “This is my first film with a script and my first set in Texas.

I have always admired Rachel and Colin’s work and am honored to be able to provide them with a serious and unexpected playground. “.
