The cast of Last Night in Soho, Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright’s upcoming psychological horror-thriller, continues to grow with a new report that a pair of stars are in talks to join the upcoming film. Via Variety, sources say that the Doctor Who alumnus Matt Smith and Leave No Trace’s Thomasin McKenzie are set to join the project, which is expected to begin filming this summer.
Apart from three seasons as the Eleventh Doctor in Doctor Who, Smith also received an Emmy nomination for playing Prince Philip in Netflix’s The Crown. In addition to Leave No Trace, McKenzie also played a role in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and will soon appear in Netflix’s Lost Girls.
Last Night in Soho will star Anya Taylor-Joy (Glass, Split), Matt Smith (Doctor Who, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), and Thomasin McKenzie (Leave No Trace, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies). No other cast members have been listed at this time, but we expect that to change in the coming weeks and months as the project moves ahead.
The film 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 it is expected to release in 2020 with production slated to begin this summer. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this project as it comes together.
