Expect to see the drag world portrayed as you never have before in this upcoming thriller Femme, starring George Mackay.

George MacKay and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett have been cast in the soon-to-shoot thriller, Femme. The film looks to be a sort of feature-length reimagining of the short film Femme, which was co-directed by Sam H Freeman and Ng Choon Ping. The pair are returning to helm the feature-length version, although it appears that Mackay, star of 1917, has replaced I May Destroy You's Paapa Essiedu in the lead role.

The film follows Jules, ‘a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, Jules has never been afraid to be himself. When he’s the target of a cold-blooded homophobic attack, Jules struggles to regain his sense of self which has a damaging ripple effect that reaches out to his friends and career.’

From this point, the film looks set to move into revenge thriller territory, presenting the world of drag performance in a fashion that we haven’t really seen before.

There are no release details as yet, but we do know that cameras are set to roll next month on the production. Mackay continues to pop up in a variety of interesting roles and Femme certainly looks set to continue this trend. More on this one as we hear it.
