Ben Wheatley tweets first pictures from High-Rise set

Director teases fans with images from upcoming thriller starring Tom Hiddleston

Director Ben Wheatley has shared the first images from on set of upcoming thriller High-Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston.


An adaptation of JG Ballard’s unnerving novel, the story shows just how quickly primal urges take over when a set of residents in an affluent apartment block are cut off from the rest of society.

Hinting at the chaos within, Wheatley shared this image of scattered keys:

Followed by this image of a mysterious locked case.

Are scripts hidden within? Is it a prop from the film? Or maybe even more casting news after this weekend saw Dracula’s Luke Evans and Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss added to the line-up.

Director of Photography Laurie Rose also shared this snap:

It’s thought filming is taking place in Belfast, with Hiddleston taking on 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.

Jeremy Irons, James Purefoy and Reece Shearsmith also star. See here for more filming info.
