Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, Sam Riley Join Franklyn

Trio signs on for McMorrow's debut.

Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, and Sam Riley are heading into the future.

Variety reports that the trio has signed on to star in Franklyn, the feature-length debut from director Gerald McMorrow. The film's synopsis, from the article:

Pic, set in contemporary London and a future metropolis dominated by faith, weaves the tale of four lost souls divided by two parallel worlds on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates.

Yeah, we don't really understand it either. But McMorrow's previous effort, a short film titled Thespian X, won the Turner Classic Short Film Festival prize at the London Film Festival, as well as awards at the Tribeca and Berlin festivals, so he must know what he's doing. Franklyn will be Riley's first feature since appearing as doomed Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis in Anton Corbijn's Control.
