Heartfelt homage to a truly gifted actor
Ciarán will be back in London next Summer for Conor McPherson's new play Girl From the North Country.
Set during the Great Depression, in Duluth Minnesota, Girl From the North Country will have its world premiere at the Old Vic Theatre on July 26th. Directed by the author, the production will feature music and lyrics by Bob Dylan.
"I'm mixing songs together - it starts as one song and turns into another halfway through. And because the lyrics are real writing, real poetry, they have that ambiguity that almost anybody can say them and it means something. So you have got this tremendous freedom with the songs," McPherson says of using Dylan lyrics in his work.
Ciarán will play the director of a Russian spy agency in Red Sparrow, a thriller directed by Francis Lawrence, expected in the theaters on November 10.
Based on Jason Matthews' espionage novel, Red Sparrow tells the story of Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova, who is drafted against her will to become a Sparrow, a trained seductress. She is assigned to operate against a CIA officer who handles the agency's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence, and falls for him, to the point of considering defection.
Ciarán has been cast as Steppenwolf in the next DC Extended Universe superhero movie Justice League, alongside Ben Affleck.
Justice League is the big screen adaptation of DC Comics' iconic superhero team. Henry Cavill returns as Superman, joined by Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Justice League is scheduled for a November 17th, 2017 release, with a sequel to follow on June 14th, 2019.
Ciarán and Tobias Menzies will star alongside Jarred Harris in AMC's new series The Terror, based on a novel by science fiction and horror writer Dan Simmons. He will play real life character Sir John Franklin, who disappeared in the Arctic with the 129 members of his expedition.
The story takes place in 1847, when a Royal Navy expedition of two ships, HMS Terror and HMS Erebus, led by Sir John Franklin, is sent to the Arctic to study terrestrial magnetism, and navigate the Northwest Passage. When Franklin dies, Captain Francis Crozier of HMS Terror takes command of the icebound crewmen, and they abandon ship in a desperate attempt to flee south across the ice, stalked by an unknown predator... The series is set to premiere in 2017.
