Ari Aster teases next project which might be a ‘nightmare comedy’
In a recent AMA (Ask me Anything) session on Reddit, when asked about what his next movie will be and if he plans on continuing making horror films, Midsommar director Ari Aster has revealed that it might take him a while before he can do another horror movie because he’s currently planning to tackle a brand new genre for his next project.
“Next one will either be a zonky nightmare comedy or a big, sickly domestic melodrama.” Aster said.“It might take me a few movies before I wind back around to it, but I love horror and I’m sure I’ll be back.”
Midsommar follows a couple, played by Jack Reynor (Strange Angel) and Florence Pugh (Outlaw King), who are traveling through Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown for its fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
The film also stars Will Poulter (Detroit), William Jackson Harper (The Good Place), Ellora Torchia (Broadchurch), Archie Madekwe (Teen Spirit) and relative newcomer Vilhem Blomgren.
