Preacher star Dominic Cooper has landed his next lead movie role. The actor, who played The Reverend Jesse Custer in the AMC series, is set to star in Irish period drama Cry From The Sea, according to Variety.
Cooper will feature alongside True Detective's Sarah Gadon with Vic Sarin helming the project based on a script by Ciaran Creagh.
Per Variety, Cry From The Sea is set in the aftermath of World War I and the Irish Civil War. It follows Seamus Óg Mac Grianna (Cooper), an Irish lighthouse keeper, who torments himself over a past tragic mistake by keeping himself isolated in a lighthouse.
"Seamus's only company is Maire, his housekeeper and protector, who enables him to remain closed off from the world while quietly waiting for him to see her," the synopsis continues.
"His meticulously structured world begins to crack when he meets Edith (Gadon), an outspoken American war widow whose quest for closure ignites something in Seamus that will forever change them all."
Alongside his role in Preacher, Cooper is also best known for playing Sky, the son-in-law of Meryl Streep's character Donna in Mamma Mia!. Cooper also starred in the sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which explored Donna's backstory after it had been revealed she'd tragically passed away.
"Meryl was definitely bummed about not being in much of the second one," he said. "She understood that was where the story goes, but I remember her saying: 'Well, I didn't wanna be dead'."
Meanwhile Streep said she'd be up for being in a third Mamma Mia! movie, telling the magazine: "I'm up for anything. I'll have to schedule a knee scoping before we film, but if there's an idea that excites me, I'm totally there."
Cry From The Sea is yet to receive a release date.
