It appears that casting is finally complete for Edgar Wright’s psychological horror-thriller, Last Night in Soho. According to Variety, the film’s final five additions have come on board, led by veteran actors Diana Rigg and Terence Stamp, the former of whom recently played the fan-favorite role of Olenna Tyrell in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Stamp, on the other hand, has starred in a number of classics, including 1980’s Superman II as General Zod.
Also joining the production are Rita Tushingham (Doctor Zhivago), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), and Synnøve Karlsen (Medici), rounding out the film’s main cast led by Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith, and Thomasin McKenzie. Plot and character details are still being kept tightly under wraps, but we will no doubt hear more in due time.
Last Night in Soho stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Glass, Split), Matt Smith (Doctor Who, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Thomasin McKenzie (Leave No Trace, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Terence Stamp (Superman II), Rita Tushingham (Doctor Zhivago), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), and Synnøve Karlsen (Medici).
The film is a psychological horror-thriller set in central London, inspired by the likes of Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski's Repulsion. Wright is directing 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 debut sometime in 2020 with production now underway.
