We won’t have to wait too long to see Paul Mescal and Saoirse Ronan on the big screen.
The pair will be appearing in the upcoming sci-fi flick, Foe.
The film will see them play a married couple in a not so distant future when a stranger comes to visit offering them an opportunity that could change their lives.
And we have a release date for the movie!
Foe will hit cinemas across Ireland on the 20th of October.
Not that long at all!
Saoirse plays Hen while Paul plays Junior. The married are alone on their farm in 2065 when an uninvited stranger played by English actor Aaron Pierre shows up at their door with the proposal of a lifetime.
But it’s just for Junior, who will have to leave their farm. He has been asked to pilot a space program and leave his wife behind to be looked over by an artificial version of him.
The synopsis for the film reads: “Academy Award nominees Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal star in Foe, a haunting exploration of marriage and identity set in an uncertain world. Hen and Junior farm a secluded piece of land that has been in Junior’s family for generations, but their quiet life is thrown into turmoil when an uninvited stranger (Aaron Pierre) shows up at their door with a startling proposal.
“Based on best-selling author Iain Reid’s novel, directed by Garth Davis, and co-written by Davis and Reid, Foe’s mesmerizing imagery and persistent questions about the nature of humanity (and artificial humanity) bring the not-too-distant future to luminous life.”
This film really does look unmissable with Saoirse already being tipped for another Oscar nomination for her role in it.
It’s not the only film we will see Paul in in the coming months, he will also appear in All of Us Strangers. You can find out more about that here.
