By Chris Morse
Two weeks ago, we unwrapped the first details on Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright's upcoming new project, which is slated to be a psychological horror-thriller. Further details were not yet available at the time, but fortunately the filmmaker has pulled back the curtain a bit more and not only revealed the title of the film, but also its first star. According to Variety, the new film is titled Last Night in Soho.
In addition, it has also been revealed that Glass actress Anya Taylor-Joy will star in this new film, giving this effort its first addition beyond the writer and director spots. No other cast members have been listed at this time, but we expect that to change in the coming weeks and months.
Last Night in Soho will be a psychological horror-thriller set in central London, inspired by the likes of Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski's Repulsion. Wright will direct a screenplay he co-wrote alongside Penny Dreadful writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns. The film does not yet have a release date, but production is slated to begin this summer. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this project as it comes together.
