Tilda Swinton to star in new Joanna Hogg ghost story The Eternal Daughter

Filmed secretly during lockdown, the film reunites the pair with producer Martin Scorsese, following acclaimed Sundance drama The Souvenir

Tilda Swinton has reunited with director Joanna Hogg for her new film, a ghost story titled The Eternal Daughter. Martin Scorsese who previously worked with the pair on Hogg’s acclaimed, autobiographical drama The Souvenir, is also onboard once again, as executive producer.

Described by Deadline as a “mystery drama”, The Eternal Daughter “will chart the story of a middle-aged daughter and her elderly mother who must confront long-buried secrets when they return to their former family home”. 

In true ghost story fashion, that family home takes the form of a “once-grand manor” that has become: “a nearly vacant hotel brimming with mystery.”

The film was shot in secret in Wales during lockdown, and is now in post production, picked up by A24. The arthouse production company also handled distribution for The Souvenir and its upcoming second installment. In both, Tilda Swinton plays the mother to her IRL daughter, Honor Swinton Byrne.

Other cast members for The Eternal Daughter reportedly include Joseph Mydell, Carly Davies, and Alfie Sankey-Green.

Tilda Swinton also recently starred in Wes Anderson’s long-delayed film The French Dispatch, and Pedro Almodóvar’s The Human Voice, a 30-minute short based on Jean Cocteau’s play of the same name. Watch the trailer here.
