UPDATED: We have just been contacted by Tilda Swinton’s PR company in the UK who have confirmed that this story is in fact incorrect and Swinton has not been cast in Sisters.


Tilda Swinton (Burn After Reading) and Ciarán Hinds (The Rite) have been cast in Northern Irish drama Sisters.

Terry Loane (Mickybo and Me) is attached to direct from a screenplay penned by TV screenwriter Ronan Blaney.

Sisters tells the tale of a Irish mother, feminist, activist and nun who lands at a school and changes thousands of deprived kids’ lives around with her skills as a teacher.

UK production company Cineman Films are shopping the film around at the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival.
