The first English language film from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, The Lobster, has added more talent to its already stellar cast.

American actor John C. Reilly is joining Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw and Angeliki Papoulia, who are all starring in the upcoming romantic sci-fi/thriller.

Set in the future where single people must adhere to strict regulations when finding a partner, The Lobster was written by Lanthimos alongside his Alps and Dogtooth screenwriter Efthymis Filippou. The script was awarded with the ARTE International Award as Best CineMart Project for 2013 at the 42nd Rotterdam International Film Festival.
