Apple Original Films is currently in the process of developing a new feature film titled Raymond and Ray, with Golden Globe winner Ewan McGregor, and Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke attached for the leading roles. It is a production by Apple Studios, which hails from Rodrigo García, and Alfonso Cuarón.
Raymond and Ray is written and directed by Rodrigo García (Albert Nobbs). It will center around the story of the titular half-brothers, “who have lived in the shadow of a terrible father. Somehow, they still each have a sense of humor, and his funeral is a chance for them to reinvent themselves. There’s anger, there’s pain, there’s folly, there might be love, and there’s definitely grave-digging,” reads the description (via Deadline).
The film is produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón, Bone Curtis, and Julie Lynn for Mockingbird Pictures. It will be executive produced by Gabriela Rodriguez and Shea Kammer.
McGregor is still in production for Disney+’s upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, where he is set to reprise his role as the Jedi Master. He will also next be seen in Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio movie.
Hawke is also currently filming for a Disney+ series from Marvel Studios titled Moon Knight, which will be led by Oscar Isaac. He will next star in Blumhouse’s The Black Phone, Robert Eggers’ Viking revenge pic The Northman, and Netflix’s Knives Out 2.
