Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Claire Foy and Jamie Bell have joined the cast of filmmaker ‘Andrew Haigh’s feature film ‘Strangers.’

The story follows screenwriter Adam (Scott) who, one night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, has a chance encounter with his mysterious neighbour Harry (Mescal) that punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As Adam and Harry get closer, Adam is pulled back to his childhood home where he discovers that his long-dead parents (Foy and Bell) are both living and look the same age as the day they died over 30 years ago.

The ‘Lean on Pete’ filmmaker takes the helm on the picture which he also adapted from the award-winning novel by Taichi Yamada.
