The Irish are doing well in Hollywood these days aren't they?

Paul Mescal & Andrew Scott are set to play lovers in a new film called 'Strangers'.

The film will be directed by critically acclaimed and openly gay filmmaker Andrew Haigh.

Haigh will be adapting the film from an award-winning 1987 Japanese novel of the same name, written by Taichi Yamada.

The story follows a screenwriter called Andrew (Andrew Scott) who begins a passionate romantic relationship with his mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal).

It's being described as "a tale about grief, existential loneliness, and unending longing for human connection".
