CUCKOO was shot on 35mm by writer/director Tilman Singer, who created a festival sensation with his debut movie LUZ. The cast also includes Dan Stevens (THE GUEST), Jessica Henwick, Marton Csókás, Greta Fernández and LUZ’s Jan Bluthardt; also returning from Singer’s first film are cinematographer Paul Faltz, production designer Dario Mendez Acosta, composer Simon Waskow and sound designer Henning Hein. Plot details on CUCKOO are being kept under wraps; it’s currently in postproduction for release by Neon in 2023. We’ll keep you posted on further updates as we get ’em.
