Richard Gere, Steve Coogan, Laura Linney to Star in Oren Movermans The Dinner

LONDON Richard Gere, Steve Coogan, Laura Linney, Rebecca Hall and Chloe Sevigny are to star in Oren Movermans The Dinner, which is based on the bestselling novel by Herman Koch.

The Dinner starts as Paul and Claire Lohman (Coogan, Linney) get ready for a dinner with Pauls politician brother Stan (Gere), and his wife Barbara (Hall). Tensions already exist between the two brothers Stan is a smooth-talking celebrity who is the favorite to win the governors race, while Paul has a chip on his shoulder and is currently not working.

But, as the evening in a chic restaurant progresses, dark secrets emerge about their respective children. A monstrous crime has been committed by the Lohman kids, and the two couples are divided about how to handle the situation.

Moverman, whose last film was Geres Time Out of Mind, has adapted Kochs novel and will direct. He commented: Herman Kochs The Dinner is an extraordinarily provocative, conscience-bending ride that takes on culturally relevant issues and turns them into an intricate menu of human passions and primal fears.

Movermans first feature The Messenger won Oscar nominations for his script (with Alessandro Camon) and Woody Harrelsons performance. His second film Rampart brought together a heavy-weight ensemble cast that included Harrelson, Ben Foster, Sigourney Weaver, Robin Wright, Ice Cube, Ned Beatty and Brie Larson.

Movermans credits also include Love & Mercy, which he wrote and produced, and Im Not There, which he co-wrote with Todd Haynes. He also produced the recently shot Oppenheimer Strategies with Lawrence Inglee. The latter film also stars Gere, and is directed by Joseph Cedar.

Cotty Chubb, Lawrence Inglee, Eddie Vaisman and Julia Lebedev are the producers of The Dinner, which is a Code Red, ChubbCo and Blackbird production. Code Red is fully financing and Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales.

Executive producers on the project are Leonid Lebedev, Angel Lopez, Olga Segura and Eva Daniels.

The guests have been officially announced for Oren Moverman's upcoming The Dinner.

Steve Coogan, Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Chloe Sevigny and Rebecca Hall have joined the cast of the drama, based on Herman Koch's best-selling novel. Coogan, Gere and Linney had previously been attached to star but have now been confirmed. Shooting is set to start later this week in New York.

The Dinner sees Coogan and Linney playing a couple who head out for a meal with Coogan's politician brother (Gere) and his wife (Hall). Tensions already exist between the two siblings, but the drama in the restaurant unfolds when a dark secret emerges about their respective children, who have committed a major crime.

Herman Koch's The Dinner is an extraordinarily provocative, conscience-bending ride that takes on culturally relevant issues and turns them into an intricate menu of human passions and primal fears," said Moverman, who directed Gere in last year's Time Out of Mind and saw his film The Messenger pick up two Academy nominations. "I am honored to be tackling this international phenomenon as an American film with our family of talented artists and brilliant actors."

Cotty Chubb, Lawrence Inglee, Eddie Vaisman and Julia Lebedev are the producers of the pic, which is a Code Red, ChubbCo and Blackbird production. Code Red is fully financing, and Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales.

Executive producers on the project are Leonid Lebedev, Angel Lopez, Olga Segura and Eva Daniels.
