Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell can

be seen together in a film

after the black comedy

The Lobster





The two play the lead roles in

Love Child.

The film is directed by Todd Solondz, who is also writing the script, and gives a twist to the Oedipus story.

A precocious child plans to free himself from his cruel father so that he can have his mother to himself.

Plans go haywire when a handsome stranger shows up.

"This is my first movie with a plot twist and the first to be set in Texas," Solondz said in a statement.

"It's a funny, sexy story, shaped by the Hollywood movies that made me a filmmaker."

51-year-old Weisz can first be seen in Marvel's

Black Widow

and 45-year-old Farrell in

The Batman


After Yang.
