Jack Reynor, Will Poulter to star in new Ari Aster horror project
Collider is reporting that Jack Reynor (Glassland, Strange Angel, On the Basis of Sex) and Will Poulter (Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Detroit, The Revenant) will be starring alongside Florence Pugh (The Falling, The Little Drummer Girl) in Ari Aster’s (Hereditary) new untitled horror movie.
According to the outlet, Pugh and Reynor are set to play a couple that travels to 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 additional ensemble cast includes Vilhelm Blomgren, William Jackson Harper, Ellora Torchia, and Archie Madekwe. The horror film will serve as Aster’s second feature after he wrote and directed his directorial debut Hereditary, starring Toni Collette, Alex Wolff, and Gabriel Byrne. Hereditary earned $70 million worldwide from a $10 million budget, becoming the highest-grossing movie for studio A24.
Reynor can currently be seen on the small screen as Jack Parsons in the television series Strange Angel for CBS All Access. His upcoming projects include the sci-fi movie Kin starring alongside James Franco and the Ruth Bader Ginsburg docudrama On the Basis of Sex co-starring Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer.
Poulter is best known for his work in The Maze Runner trilogy, the comedy We’re the Millers, starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant, and the historical drama Detroit. Poulter will next be seen in the horror drama The Little Stranger alongside Josh Dylan, Domhnall Gleeson, and Ruth Wilson, premiering in theaters on August 31, 2018.
