After directing the first two episodes of the upcoming new Peter Capaldi-led season of ‘Doctor Who,’ Ben Wheatley, one of my favorite filmmakers working today, is gearing up to shoot his big screen adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s novel ‘High-Rise.’ With Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans already set for the film, a new report brings word that Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Reece Shearsmith, Peter Ferdinando and Dan Renton are also starring. ‘Kill List’ and ‘A Field in England’ writer Amy Jump has penned the script with Film4 on board as backers. A 2015 release is expected.
