FIRST LOOK: Tom Hiddleston In Ben Wheatley’s Thriller ‘HIGH-RISE’

Written by Christopher M

Empire has posted the first official still image from Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise which shows Tom Hiddleston’s character Dr. Robert Laing.

Starring alongside Hiddleston in the film include Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman), Sienna Miller (Layer Cake, American Sniper), Luke Evans (Hobbit, Fast 6), and Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men).  The film is an adaptation of the J.G. Ballard book of the same name.

In London in 1975, on the eve of Margaret Thatcher’s ascent to political power, Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) is a young doctor seduced by the lifestyle in a high-rise, an isolated community, cut off from the rest of society in their luxury tower block, and its creator, the architect Anthony Royal (Jeremy Irons). Taking up residence on the twenty-fifth floor, Laing discovers a world of complex loyalties, and also strikes up a relationship with Royal’s devoted aide Charlotte (Sienna Miller). After Laing befriends Richard Wilder (Luke Evans), a documentary filmmaker relegated to the second floor who is determined to provoke the class injustices inherent in the high-rise, a dangerous social situation develops and the high-rise eventually fragments into violent tribes

Wheatley is known for his odd dark films such as SightseersThe Kill-List and the extremely trippy A Field In England.



Below is a set image that shows-off Luke Evans’ look in the film which has him sporting a mighty-fine stache and chops.
