Tom Waits Reunites With Jim Jarmusch for New Film Father Mother Sister Brother

Tom Waits will star alongside Cate Blanchett, Adam Driver, Charlotte Rampling, and Mayim Bialik in Jim Jarmusch’s new movie Father Mother Sister Brother, Variety reports. Jarmusch’s follow-up to The Dead Don’t Die is a “comedy interwoven with threads of melancholy,” told as a triptych, per its description. It will also have a musical component, Jarmusch has said.

Indya Moore and Luka Sabbat have also joined the cast. The film is set to be finished this year.

The Dead Don’t Die came out in 2019, reuniting Waits and Jarmusch after their longtime partnership began with Down by Law. That film also starred Driver, as well as Iggy Pop, RZA, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, and Sturgill Simpson. Waits recently made a rare public outing to present Nicolas Cage with an award, a few months after auctioning a fedora to support the film industry strikes.
