All at The Agency are delighted to read the exciting news that screen royalty Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Claire Foy and Jamie Bell have been casting in Agency client Andrew Haigh’s new movie, STRANGERS.

Loosely based on an award-winning novel by Taichi Yamada, STRANGERS follows screenwriter played by Andrew Scott who, one night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, has a chance encounter with his mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal) that punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As Adam and Harry get closer, Adam is pulled back to his childhood home where he discovers that his long-dead parents (Foy and Bell) are both living and look the same age as the day they died over 30 years ago…

Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin are producing for Blueprint, along with Sarah Harvey. Blueprint’s Ben Knight and Diarmuid McKeown are executive producing alongside Ollie Madden, Daniel Battsek and Farhana Bhula for Film4. Searchlight’s DanTram Nguyen and Katie Goodson-Thomas are overseeing for the studio, along with Jaya Campbell, Apolline Berty and Kim Tance. 

Andrew Haigh is represented by Ian Benson at The Agency (London) Ltd and CAA in the USA.
