Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke are set to headline the feature Raymond and Ray for Apple Original Films about two half brothers who have lived in the shadow of a terrible father.

Somehow, they still each have a sense of humor, and his funeral is a chance for them to reinvent themselves. There’s anger, there’s pain, there’s folly, there might be love, and there’s definitely grave-digging.

Rodrigo García (In Treatment, Albert Nobbs) will write and direct and Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity and Roma) will produce with Bonnie Curtis (Saving Private Ryan, Albert Nobbs) and Julie Lynn (Albert Nobbs, To the Bone). Curtis and Lynn will produce through Mockingbird Pictures. Gabriela Rodriguez and Shea Kammer will serve as EPs.

Raymond and Ray joins an Apple Original Films lineup that includes the Sundance pickup CODA, currently streaming; Emancipation from director Antoine Fuqua and starring and produced by Will Smith; Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro; Finch, the latest film starring Tom Hanks; the Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris-starred Swan Song; Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, in partnership with A24; Sharper, from A24, Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka, starring and produced by Julianne Moore; upcoming YA adaptation The Sky is Everywhere, directed by Josephine Decker and starring Grace Kaufman, Cherry Jones and Jason Segel; and more.
