Tilda Swinton Needs to Talk About Kevin


Tilda Swinton will play the lead in Lynne Ramsay’s big-screen adaptation We Need to Talk About Kevin, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, based on Lionel Shriver’s novel, tells the story of a smart, educated New York mother who does her best to raise a son she never wanted in the first place. He turns out to be extremely difficult and is at the center of the woman’s marital breakdown before going on a killing spree at his high school with a crossbow.

The movie is being produced by Jennifer Fox, whose credits include Michael Clayton, the film for which Swinton won a supporting actress Oscar in 2008.
