Rachel Weisz, Colin Farrell to Star in Todd Solondz Comedy 'Love Child'.

Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell are reuniting for Todd Solondz’s "Love Child".

In a dark twist on the classical Oedipal story, "Love Child" follows a precocious kid in Texas who schemes to rid himself of his brutish dad so he can have his mom all to himself. Things go awry when a handsome stranger appears.

"This is my first movie with a plot and my first movie taking place in Texas," said Solondz. "It's fun and it's sexy and it’s shaped by the Hollywood movies that made me want to become a filmmaker. I've loved Rachel and Colin’s work forever, and am so honored to be able to excite their passion for serious and unexpected work as well."

Solondz, whose credits include Welcome To The Dollhouse and Happiness, will direct from his own script. Killer Films' Christine Vachon will produce with David Hinojosa on behalf of 2Am.

Weisz, an Oscar winner for "The Constant Gardener", will next be seen in Marvel's "Black Widow". She will also headline and executive produce "Dead Ringers", a reimagining of David Cronenberg's cult classic 1980s film with a gender swap, for which Amazon gave a straight-to-series order last year and will debut in 2022.

Weisz is also due to play Elizabeth Taylor in the film "A Special Relationship".

Farrell will next be seen in "The Batman" reboot and in A24’s "After Yang".
