Moss joins a cast that includes Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, Luke Evans, James Purefoy, Reece Shearsmith, Peter Ferdinando and comedian Dan Renton Skinner.
Directed by Wheatley from a screenplay by his wife and regular collaborator Amy Jump, the hotly anticipated film is an adaptation of JG Ballard’s classic British thriller.

HanWay handles sales with deals already closing with StudioCanal for UK and The Jokers for France.
Wheatley said: “Elizabeth Moss and Luke Evans are great additions to our cast. I’m really excited to be working with both of them. I’m looking forward to see what they will bring to the complex relationship between Richard and Helen Wilder.”
High-Rise centres on a new residential tower built on the eve of Thatcher’s England, at the site of what will soon become the world’s financial hub.
