The top horror film that I’m most looking forward to checking out is Ari Aster’s Hereditary starring Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne. The film is all set to hit this June, and today we have word that the film’s writer-director already has his next film in the works over at A24.
A24 will produce and fully finance Aster’s next untitled horror project which Deadline reports will be A24’s largest production to date. A24 is currently in process of casting the film with Lars Knudsen and B Reel onboard to produce. The film is expected to begin production start of late summer/early fall 2018.
The plot is being kept under wraps though it follows a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip where things quickly go awry.
Hereditary is written and directed by Ari Aster and stars Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Ann Dowd, Milly Shapiro, and Alex Wolff with Kevin Scott Frakes, Lars Knudsen, and Buddy Patrick producing. The film hits theaters nationwide on June 8th.
When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage.
