Ben Wheatley's HIGH RISE already has a solid cast with Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons and James Purefoy, and now Variety is reporting two more actors have joined the latest project from the KILL LIST director. Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss are both set to star in HIGH RISE, and production on it should begin sometime next month.

HIGH RISE is an adaptation of the J.G. Ballard (The Drowned World, Crash, Millennium People) novel of the same name, and the screenplay comes from Amy Jump, who also helped write the scripts for Ben Wheatley's A FIELD IN ENGLAND, SIGHTSEERS and KILL LIST.

Book synopsis from Amazon:

When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

HIGH RISE sounds like a mix between THE RAID and SNOWPIERCER, and I think it has the potential to be one hell of a movie. Great cast, excellent director, exciting premise...yeah, I'm pretty pumped for HIGH RISE. Ben Wheatley's new film doesn't have a release date, but the plan is for it to hit theaters sometime next year.

Luke Evans has got that whole "lack of onscreen charisma" thing going on, hasn't he?

Kinda reminds me of George Romero's Land of the Dead. The plot sounds intriguing though.
