Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Diego Luna, Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves have all officially signed on for The Bad Batch, the new film from A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night‘s Ana Lily Amirpour. Amirpour, who took home the Gotham Award for Breakthrough Director on her debut feature, wrote and will direct the new film.  

The Bad Batch, which is being produced by Annapurna Pictures and VICE, tells a dystopian love story set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals resides.

Waterhouse, who stars in the week’s The Divergent Series: Insurgent, will play “Arlen,” with Momoa (the future Aquaman) starring as “Miami Man,” Luna (“Matador”) as “Jimmy,” Reeves as “The Dream” and Carrey as “The Hermit.”

Annapurna’s Megan Ellison will produce alongside VICE’s Danny Gabai and Sina Sayyah. Annapurna’s Sammy Scher will be the executive overseeing the day-to-day development and production of the project while VICE’s Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti will Executive Produce.

Production on The Bad Batch begins in April in and around Los Angeles. Annapurna International plans to sell the film at the Cannes Film Festival.
