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

and

After Yang.
