The Power of the Dog

Benedict Cumberbatch and Elisabeth Moss will star in Jane Campion’s new film, “The Power of the Dog,” an adaptation of the Thomas Savage novel.

Campion will direct from a script she adapted, with See-Saw Films’ in-house sales arm, Cross City Films, launching sales at this month’s Cannes Film Festival. The movie will go into pre-production at the end of the year.

“‘The Power of the Dog’ is a sublime novel that deserves a life on the big screen. I couldn’t stop thinking about the story, it really haunted me. The themes of masculinity, nostalgia and betrayal are an intoxicating mix,” Campion said. “It’s also rare to find a story where the themes, the plot and the characters build tension as they reveal each other and even the end is satisfying and unexpected. It will be the first time I’ve worked with a male lead, which is exciting. Phil is a charismatic and complex character who declares war on his brother’s new wife and her teenage son.”

Re: The Power of the Dog

 I haven't read the book, but this looks really interesting.  I've enjoyed what I've seen of Jane Campion's work.  I'm even one of the select few who really liked In The Cut!  And Benedict's part sounds really intriguing - I bet he'll be great!  Looking forward to this!

Re: The Power of the Dog

Yes, it sounds very exciting and I am sure he will pull off this character brilliantly. I will read the novel soon. And I like Campions's work as well. I just bought the first series of "Top of the Lake" which sounds very interesting.

Re: The Power of the Dog

Wow, just finished the book which is quite brilliant but also disturbing. Especially where Benedict's character is concerned. This will not be easy to watch but a part he can really delve into. I think it is unlike anything he has done before so just what he loves to do.

Re: The Power of the Dog

I've seen it mentioned recently in the press, but only as part of a larger article that also discussed other films. But I'm always looking out for news about Benedict's films!

Re: The Power of the Dog

I just realized the other day that it's one of two films of Benedict's that is playing at TIFF this year, and he's going to be here in Toronto...but I have a feeling that because of COVID protocols that this year's red carpets are only open to journalists. I might check just in case, because I'd love to see him in person and get a photo (even if it's from far away - I saw Eddie Redmayne from far away at the festival on the red carpet for The Aeronauts back in 2019 and I cherish those photos even if they aren't very good).
