Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz to Star in THE LOBSTER from DOGTOOTH Director Yorgos Lanthimos | Collider
Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz are set to lead The Lobster, which will mark the English-language debut of Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos. I’ve only seen Lanthimos’ previous two films, Dogtooth and Alps, and they’re incredibly weird. Their plots’ defy easy description, and judging by THR’s synopsis, The Lobster sounds like it will be only slightly less nuts: “an unconventional love story set in a dystopian future where finding a partner is a matter of life or death.” If you’re a fan of Lanthimos’ work, that probably makes you giddy, and I hope I’ll enjoy this one more than Dogtooth and Alps
Ben Wheatley's Nex Film Is An Adaptation Of JG Ballard's High-Rise Starring Tom Hiddleston - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Apparently this book is very good, but numerous attempts to film have failed. Nice director/actor combo though. Look forward to it.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Lobster:
An unconventional love story set in a dystopian near future where single people, according to the rules of the Town, are arrested and transferred to the Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released in the woods. A desperate man escapes from the Hotel to the woods where the Loners live and there he falls in love although it’s against the rules.
