Triangle Of Sadness is a satire set in the fashion world that takes place on a luxury cruise which goes awry when the Marxist captain (Woody Harrelson) decides to punish his spoiled passengers by staging a grand dinner during a violent storm, leading to food poisoning and seasickness.
However, when the ship’s passengers and crew become marooned on a deserted island, the power dynamic shifts as a cleaning lady rises through the ranks as the only one able to provide food to the glitterati.
Ruben Östlund told Aftonbladet: “Woody Harrelson will play the part (of the captain)… We had a good meeting, it feels like we have a similar attitude to life and he is very enthusiastic about this role.”
Triangle Of Sadness is Ruben Östlund’s biggest production to date with a budget of €10m and will be shot entirely in English. Filming begins in February next year.
