Coming in 2016: Tilda Swinton in A BIGGER SPLASH

Yes, word of a new Tilda Swinton film is reason to stop what you’re doing and pay attention. But when she’s surrounded by other very pretty people on a volcanic Mediterranean island AND she’s playing a rock star… this feels like a whole bunch of upside. The film is A Bigger Splash, from I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino.

Cast of A Bigger Splash

The cast:
:: Matthias Schoenaerts (the upcoming A Danish Life, Far from the Madding Crowd, The Drop)
:: Dakota Johnson (Black Mass and, yeah, Fifty Shades of Grey)
:: Ralph Fiennes (Where do I start? The Grand Budapest Hotel. Quiz Show. Schindler’s List. Hell, he’s even great in Maid in Manhattan)

The summary, from Fox Searchlight:
Rock legend Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts) when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry (Ralph Fiennes) unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson) and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue.

I’m guessing Harry and Penelope are like The Tempest. Maybe.

A Bigger Splash is scheduled for a U.S. release on May 13, 2016. Up against the new Friday the 13th film, in case you were wondering.
