Lenny Abrahamson preps The Little Stranger
Director Lenny Abrahamson’s next feature, The Little Stranger, is now in pre-production in the UK with Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson lined up to star.
Lucinda Coxon (The Danish Girl) has adapted Sarah Waters’ 1940-set gothic novel about mysterious events in a crumbling country house in Warwickshire. The book was published in 2009 and shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

Abrahamson’s 2015 film Room won Brie Larson an Oscar for Best Actress last year, one of multiple gongs garnered by the film. The Irish director also won plaudits for Frank, a comedy-drama which premiered at Sundance in 2014 and went on to scoop several awards including Best Screenplay at that year’s British Independent Film Awards.
