Ewan McGregor

Despite appearing in the lackluster hopeful blockbuster Jack the Giant Slayer, the fantastic Ewan McGregor has had quite a great run on the big screen. Perfect Sense, The Impossible, Beginners and last year's August: Osage County have seen some great performances from the actor. Soon he'll be seen alongside Johnny Depp in Mortdecai and the once troubled western Jane Got a Gun, and now he's lined up another promising project with Last Days in the Desert, a new project from Albert Nobbs director Rodrigo Garcia that will team McGregor up with David Gordon Green's Joe star Tye Sheridan. Read on!

Deadline says the story will see McGregor playing a holy man and a demon who must confront his own fate after an encounter with a family struggling to survive in the harsh desert environment. Sheridan is likely part of the family along with Ciarán Hinds and Ayelet Zurer. Garcia wrote the script himself and starts shooting the film later this month with Gravity cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki lensing. The two previously worked together on Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her and the director of photography says, "It’s a tiny little beautiful, extraordinary script that Rodrigo wrote that we’re going to shoot for five weeks.” It certainly sounds promising. Stay tuned.
