Irish star Gabriel Byrne (‘In Treatment,’ ‘The Usual Suspects’), Jesse Eisenberg (‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’), and Isabelle Huppert (‘The Piano Teacher,’ ‘Violette’) are all set for ‘Louder Than Bombs,’ the English-language debut from internationally acclaimed auteur Joachim Trier.
‘Louder Than Bombs’ centres around Gene (Byrne) and his two sons (Eisenberg and Druid), three years after the death of Gene’s wife (Huppert), an internationally celebrated photographer. As they return to the house all four lived in during the boys’ formative years, the three grapple with remarkably contrasting memories of this woman who influenced their lives so profoundly. In doing so, they must begin to negotiate how best to live together, and uncover the mystery that informed her life.
Amy Ryan (‘birdman,’ ‘Gone Baby Gone’), David Strathairn (‘Good Night, And Good Luck’) and newcomer Devin McKenzie Druid round out the cast.
Filming is underway in New York City with Trier directing from a script he co-wrote with Eskil Vogt.
