A24 confirms that Darren Aronofsky’s ‘The Whale’, starring Brendan Fraser and Sadie Sink, is still planned to release in 2022. The film follows a reclusive English teacher suffering from severe obesity who attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
The psychological film is directed by Darren Aronofsky and written by Samuel D. Hunter, based on his play of the same name. According to the synopsis, “A 600-pound (272 kg) middle-aged man named Charlie tries to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter. The two grew apart after Charlie abandoned his family for his gay lover, who later died. Charlie then went on to binge eat out of pain and guilt.”
The Whale stars Brendan Fraser, Sadie Sink, Hong Chau, Samantha Morton, and Ty Simpkins.
The Whale is set to hit theaters in late 2022.
