Here is the previously-released plot description from this adaptation of J.G. Ballard's novel of the same name.
"The film centers on a new residential tower built on the eve of Margaret Thatcher's rise to power, at the site of what will soon become the world's financial hub. Designed as a luxurious solution to the problems of the city, it is a world apart.
Enter Robert Laing (Hiddleston), a young doctor seduced by the high-rise and its creator, the visionary architect Anthony Royal (Irons). Laing discovers a world of complex loyalties, and also strikes up a relationship with Royal's devoted aide Charlotte (Miller).

But rot has set in beneath the flawless surface. Sensing discord amongst the tenants, Laing meets Wilder, a charismatic provocateur bent on inciting the situation. Wilder initiates Laing into the hidden life of the high-rise and Laing is shocked at what he sees. As the residents break into tribal factions, Laing finds himself in the middle of mounting violence. Violence that he also finds emerging in himself."
"Elisabeth 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."
The supporting cast is rounded out by Reece Shearsmith, Peter Ferdinando and comedian Dan Renton Skinner.
Ben Wheatley is directing from an adapted screenplay he co-wrote with frequent collaborator Amy Jump, with Jeremy Thomas producing. Shooting is scheduled to begin next month in Belfast, Ireland.
Luke Evans will next be seen in Dracula Untold, while Elisabeth Moss is wrapping up her seven-season run on Mad Men, which airs the second half of Season 7 next year. James Purefoy stars on the hit Fox drama series The Following.
