Tom Hiddleston is in good company in Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s thriller High-Rise as Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss join the ranks, Variety reports.
The story charts the lives of affluent residents of a futuristic apartment block, in which all modern amenities are contained, leaving them cut off from the rest of society. It’s an unnerving tale of life running out of control, as residents become driven by their primal urges.
Hiddleston plays the role of doctor Robert Laing, who is fascinated by the building, forming a relationship with the architect’s aide Charlotte, played by Sienna Miller.
Evans was most recently seen on the big screen in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. He’s a busy man too, taking on the title role in Dracula Untold, which is due for release on 3 October.
Moss is perhaps best-known for her role as Peggy Olson in TV hit Mad Men and for her Golden Globe-winning turn in Top of the Lake.
Big-name stars Jeremy Irons, James Purefoy and Reece Shearsmith will also star.

Emma is a chat show addict and quotes Friends more than is probably healthy.
