Mockingbird Pictures and Division Films announced today that Ewan McGregor and Tye Sheridan have signed on to star in their co-production of Last Days in the Desert, which is written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs). Ciarán Hinds (There Will Be Blood) and Ayelet Zurer (Angels and Demons) round out the film’s cast as Sheridan's Father and Mother.

Last Days in the Desert follows a holy man and a demon—both roles played by McGregor—on a journey through the desert. An encounter with a family struggling to survive in this harsh environment forces the holy man to confront his own fate.

The film is produced by Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis of Mockingbird Pictures along with Wicks Walker of Division Films, who financed the picture in collaboration with recently shingled Ironwood Entertainment, with Aspiration Media and New Balloon in association.

Garcia and director of photography “Chivo” Lubezki are reunited for the picture after having worked together many years ago on Garcia’s Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her, which was awarded Un Certain Regard at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival. Lubezki received his sixth Academy Award nomination recently for his work on Gravity.

Says HanWay’s Thorsten Schumacher, ‘Rodrigo Garcia is an incredible filmmaker who we’ve long admired and he’s assembled an amazing cast and crew to bring to life this epic and profound story. We’re thrilled to introduce 'Last Days In The Desert' to our buyers at Berlin’.

Last Days in the Desert boasts a cast and crew that have collectively received 37 Oscar nominations: 4-time Academy Award nominee Jeannine Oppewall (Catch Me If You Can) as production designer; 3-time Academy Award nominee Judianna Makovsky (The Hunger Games) as costume designer; 2-time Academy Award nominee Christina Smith (Schindler’s List) as makeup department head and 2-time Academy Award winner Andy Nelson (Les Misérables) and 4-time Academy Award nominee Peter Devlin (Iron Man 3) are handling sound.

Last Days in the Desert commenced principal photography in the Southern California desert. WME Entertainment is handling domestic rights, with Hanway Films representing international.
