Tahar Rahim is So Alpha

This week has been wild with excellent movie news and today's getting off to another excellent start with the word that Raw and Titane director Julia Ducournau has lined up her next movie and it will star our boyfriend Tahar Rahim! It's to be called Alpha and it's described as the director's "most personal, profound work yet" but that's it, that's all they're giving us. Oh and it will co-star actress Golshifteh Farahani, who was in Jim Jarmusch's Paterson with Adam Driver and the Extraction movies with Chris Hemsworth and most importantly of all she was in Asghar Farhadi's fantastic 2009 film About Elly -- if you've never seen that one seek it out immediately. Farahani and Rahim have that in common -- he starred in Farhadi's film The Past, which was also wonderful. If you're gonna cast your movie casting it with Farhadi alumni ain't a bad way to go!

He was the worst thing in Madame Web, which is like saying he was the worst Republican politican.
