“‘Peacock’ stunned me as a script from start to finish,” Murphy said. “It offers an incredible challenge to an actor — one I couldn’t turn down.” Page added, “This is one of the boldest screenplays I’ve come across in my albeit short career; it’s a character and story I can throw myself into and exactly the type of movie I love to be a part of.”
Cillian Murphy is best known for his roles in 28 Days Later, Batman Begins and Sunshine. Having seen him in all three, I cannot wait to see what he does in Peacock. I always like a psychological thriller to get the old cogs in my head turning.
Peacock will be directed by newcomer Michael Lander, who co-wrote the script with another newcomer Ryan Roy. However, the fact that they have been able to get these two young talented actors on board speaks volumes.
