The Hollywood Reporter — The psychological thriller from the ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ director is for FilmNation and BBC Films.

Jude Law and Carrie Coon are set to star in Sean Durkin’s The Nest, a family psychodrama for FilmNation Entertainment and BBC Films, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Durkin’s first film since the critically-acclaimed drama Martha Marcy May Marlene will feature Law as a businessman who brings his American wife and kids home to Britain to pursue new business opportunities, only to be plunged into the despair as their unaffordable new life in an English manor house threatens to destroy the family.

As the eerie isolation of the house pushes the family further apart, each person descends into a self-destructive cycle, leaving everyone unsure if their family will survive.

The Nest is set to be shot in Sept. 2018 in Canada and Britain. Durkin wrote the screenplay.

Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe are producing for Element Pictures, with FilmNation and BBC Films as co-producers. FilmNation is handling international sales and will introduce the project at Cannes.
