Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy to star in PeacockFebruary 15th, 2008 - 3:43 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Feb 15 (ANI): Ellen Page and Cillian Murphy are all set to star in Mandate Pictures’ psychological thriller “Peacock,” about a man with split personalities and the woman who holds a key to his past.
Peacock is set in the small town of Peacock, Neb., where Murphy’s character with a split personality fools the town into believing that his two alter egos are man and wife.
Page will play a struggling young mother who sparks a battle between the personalities.
Barry Mendel is producing the film, which marks the directorial debut of Michael Lander, who co-wrote the script with co-producer Ryan Roy.
” ‘Peacock’ stunned me as a script from start to finish. It offers an incredible challenge to an actor — one I couldn’t turn down, Variety quoted Murphy, as saying. (ANI)
