A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night and The Bad Batch writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s third feature Blood Moon has just snagged some big-name talent.
Deadline reports that Kate Hudson (The Skeleton Key) and Craig Robinson (The Office) are set to star in the film, which Oscar-winner John Lesher (Birdman) will produce.
Lesher said, “Lily’s unique vision and poetic style sets her apart from the pack. She is truly one of the most exciting filmmakers working today.”
Zac Efron is in talks to join the film as well, which is set to begin production in spring 2019.
The story of a girl with strange and dangerous abilities who escapes from a mental asylum in New Orleans.
