The Lobster, the dystopian romance movie where single people risk being turned into wild animals, just got a lot more interesting. John C. Reilly joined the cast of this English-language film from Oscar-winning Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos.

There's also a new plot synopsis for this weird film:

Single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel and are obliged to find a mate within 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods.

If that isn't enough to get you interested, the movie will also star Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ashley Jensen, Michael Smiley, and Jessica Barden.

The Lobster is currently filming in Ireland, so hopefully we'll get some more details soon.
