Farrell, Weisz up for The Lobster.

Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz are set to star in romantic drama The Lobster.

Ben Whishaw, Olivia Colman and Lea Seydoux have also signed up for the film, which will mark the English-language debut of Oscar-nominated Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos.

"I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to work with such great actors. Their contribution to our film will enrich and expand the world we are trying to create and explore," the director told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Furthermore our team of old and new collaborators makes me very confident and excited to start making this film."

The Lobster, which has been written by the director and Efthimis Filippou, is described as an "unconventional love story set in a dystopian future where finding a partner is a matter of life or death."

Yorgos, who made Dogtooth and Alps, will also reunite with actresses Ariane Labed (Alps) and Aggeliki Papoulia (Dogtooth) on the project.

Shooting is scheduled to start on March 24 in Ireland.
