Rachel Weisz & Colin Farrell To Reunite On Todd Solondz Movie 'Love Child' — Cannes Market

After starring in Yorgos Lanthimos's dark comedy The Lobster, Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) and Colin Farrell (The Batman) are set to reunite in Todd Solondz's new comedy-drama, Love Child.

Solondz (Happiness) will direct from his own script. Killer Films' Christine Vachon will produce with David Hinojosa on behalf of 2AM.

In what is described as a darkly comic twist on the Oedipal story, Love Child follows a precocious kid who schemes to rid himself of his brutish dad so he can have his mom all to himself. Things go awry when a handsome stranger appears.

Cinetic Media and CAA Media Finance are arranging the financing and representing the domestic rights along with WME. Madriver International is overseeing international sales and bringing the title to the Cannes virtual market.

"This is my first movie with a plot and my first movie taking place in Texas. It's fun and it's sexy and it's shaped by the Hollywood movies that made me want to become a filmmaker. I've loved Rachel and Colin's work forever, and am so honored to be able to excite their passion for serious and unexpected work as well," said Solondz.


I now own every Todd Solondz film on blu ray except for Welcome to The Dollhouse (and Fear, Anxiety, and Depression obviously.) So I was glad to see that the Turner Classic Movies app was hosting WTTD this week, it leaves September 18th.

Fear, Anxiety, and Depression I've never seen and he's said in interviews he'd prefer people don't see it. I think he's more self conscious of his performance than the film really, but I heard a couple guys going through his filmography on a podcast say they really like it. Currently the best quality copy available of it to watch is here on this youtube channel:


His short films Babysitter (1984) and Schatt's Last Shot (1985) are back online
