Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke are set to headline the feature Raymond and Ray for Apple Original Films about two half brothers who have lived in the shadow of a terrible father.
Somehow, they still each have a sense of humor, and his funeral is a chance for them to reinvent themselves. There’s anger, there’s pain, there’s folly, there might be love, and there’s definitely grave-digging.
Rodrigo García (In Treatment, Albert Nobbs) will write and direct and 4x Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity and Roma) will produce with Bonnie Curtis (Saving Private Ryan, Albert Nobbs) and Julie Lynn (Albert Nobbs, To the Bone). Curtis and Lynn will produce through Mockingbird Pictures. Gabriela Rodriguez and Shea Kammer will serve as EPs.
