Busy old time for Richard Armitage (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey). He was recently recruited for heist caper and spin-off Ocean's Eight. Now word arrives via Deadline that he will be part of the cast for Julie Delpy's (2 Days In Paris) sixth film as a director, My Zoe.
The indie drama already boasts Daniel Brühl (Rush), Lior Ashkenazy (Big Bad Wolves) and Sophia Ally (A Modest Defeat) in the cast, with Delpy on writing, directing and co-starring duty. The film follows the fallout of Isabelle (Delpy) and James's (Armitage) marriage. Their relationship is well and truly over, but they stay in touch to share parenting time for their daughter, Zoe. Until, that is, tragedy strikes, and Isabelle decides to take matters into her own hands.
In addition to Ocean's Eight (due to arrive in cinemas next year), Armitage has thriller Sleepwalker and historical drama Pilgrimage headed our way, though neither film has a UK release date as yet.
