Cillian Murphy and Thandie Newton to star in The Retreat
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Earlier today, Tom Hardy signed on to star in THIS MEANS WAR with Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon. Now, we learn that another INCEPTION star is lining up a project. Cillian Murphy will join Thandie Newton in the British thriller THE RETREAT. The film has a fascinating premise in which Murphy and Newton will play a married couple that rent a house on a remote island to work on their marriage. While there, a soldier in a biohazard suit washes up and tells them that everyone on the mainland is dead due to a virus.
The script was written by Carl Tibbets, who will also direct the film. I’m loving the idea of the movie and I’m curious if they’re going to go the route where the mainland really is destroyed or if their going to create a mystery where the married couple start to doubt the truth to the soldier’s story.
