‘Billy Lynn’ Star Joe Alwyn Joins Emma Stone in ‘The Favourite’

Rachel Weisz and Nicholas Hoult also star in the ‘Lobster’ helmer’s film.
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk star Joe Alwyn will join newly minted Oscar winner Emma Stone in The Favourite.

The period drama, directed by The Lobster helmer Yorgos Lanthimos, also will star Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult and Olivia Colman. It is set during the reign of Queen Anne (Colman), the last monarch of the House of Stuart, and centers on a love triangle and power struggle among the women of Queen Anne’s court.

Alwyn will play Masham, the love interest of Emma Stone’s servant character, who uses him to advance her position in court.

Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara wrote the script for the project, which is produced by Ceci Dempsey of Scarlet Films and Element Pictures’ Ed Guiney and Lee Magiday (who produced The Lobster).

A graduate of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Alwyn has become a quickly rising star after Ang Lee cast him as the titular character in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (before the film, he had never acted in front of professional cameras). He starred in the 2016 film opposite Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and Vin Diesel. The British actor will soon be seen in The Sense of an Ending with Charlotte Rampling. He’s repped by CAA and Independent Talent Group in the U.K.
