EX MACHINA Director Alex Garland’s Next to Star Jessie Buckley

Killarney native Jessie Buckley is reportedly close to landing the lead role in ‘Men,’ writer-director Alex Garland’s next feature film, with Rory Kinnear (‘Skyfall,’ ‘Penny Dreadful’) also starring.

Per Deadline, the film follows “a young woman who goes on a solo vacation to the English countryside after the death of her ex-husband.”

Producers on the movie include Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich will produce.

Buckley continues to hit it out of the park, with critically acclaimed performances in ‘Wild Rose,’ ‘Chernobyl’ and most recently as nurse Oraetta Mayflower in Season 4 of ‘Fargo.’ She also received rave reviews for her role in Charlie Kaufman’s ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things,’ earning a Gotham Awards nomination.
