Peacock is an upcoming psychological thriller directed by Michael Lander, written by Lander and Ryan Roy, and starring Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page. The film has been set for release some time in 2009. The title is derived from the fictional Nebraskamarker town where the story is set.


John Skillpa (Murphy), a quiet bank clerk with a secret alter ego as a woman (named Emma), finds his life in disarray when a train crashes into his backyard, revealing his secret to the public. He must then fool the town into believing his two alter egos are man and wife.



Filming began May 6, 2008 in the small town of Odeboltmarker, Iowa. Shooting of the film was scheduled to continue on June 5, 2008 in Boonemarker, Iowa, but due to weather conditions, Cornfield Productions was forced to delay filming until the following day. The filming occurred at the local train tracks with line producer Brian Bell explaining that this particular shot was a "visual effects" shot, where the train will eventually be digitally edited to appear as if it is passing through Skillpa's backyard, even though it is not physically there. Although the shooting took four hours to complete, it will only comprise about 10 to 15 seconds of the film. The filming of Peacock ended on June 9, 2008.


  • Cillian Murphy as John Skillpa, a "retiring, shy and completely nondescript bank employee" leading a double life as Emma, his female alter ego. Murphy states that "Peacock stunned me as a script from start to finish. It offers an incredible challenge to an actor—one I couldn't turn down."
  • Ellen Page as Maggie, a struggling young mother who holds the key to Skillpa's past and sparks a battle between the personalities. Page comments, "This is one of the boldest screenplays I've come across in my albeit short career; it's a character and story I can throw myself into and exactly the type of movie I love to be a part of."
  • Susan Sarandon as the wife of Peacock's mayor who also runs a local woman's shelter. Sarandon has said that Peacock is "a very strange little piece—kind of ominous."
  • Bill Pullman as Skillpa's supervisor. Pullman has described Peacock as "a very interesting script," explaining that his role "is another character hiding the fact he's the closest one like [Skillpa]. It's a very different part for me."
  • Josh Lucas as a local police officer and Skillpa's friend.
  • Keith Carradine as a shy co-worker of Skillpa's with a secret life.
  • Paul Cram as Kenny, a quick tongued store clerk in Skillpa's town.

Casting calls for extras and other minor roles were made in the Des Moinesmarker, Iowamarker area in April 2008.
