Adam Wingard is the director, and Simon Barrett is the writer, and so far the pair have come up with some of horrors best moments over the past few years. Anyone who has seen A Horrible Way To Die, both their segments in VHS 1 & 2 and also their brilliant short film in The ABC’s of Death, will no doubt agree that this pair are capable of great things. Their latest collaboration, You’re Next, arrives later this year and the buzz surrounding it is very exciting, and it could well be the horror film of the year.
Now the pair are back with Wingard once again directing, and Barrett writing, a thriller called The Guest. The Wrap have reported that up and coming actress Maika Monroe (The Bling Ring) and Downtown Abbey star Dan Stevens are the first to be cast in The Guest:
Per The Wrap:
Stevens (“Downton Abbey”) stars as David, an ex-Marine who returns from a tour of duty a changed man and terrorizes a military family whose eldest son recently died.
Monroe will play Anna, the female lead who is suspicious of David and must protect her younger brother from his cold-blooded wrath.
Production begins this summer.
