Today marks the VOD release of Ana Lily Amirpour’s vampire Western A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, and so it’s only fitting that today also brings casting news for her next film. It’s a cannibal flick titled The Bad Batch, and holy balls is the cast impressive.
Deadline reports that both Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves have signed on to star in the dystopian love story, alongside Diego Luna and Suki Waterhouse. As was recently rumored, the always badass Jason Momoa is also officially on board.
Production is set to start in L.A. on the Texas wasteland cannibal tale next month. Waterhouse will play the charter of Arlen, Luna will play Jimmy, Reeves will play The Dream, Carrey The Hermit, and Momoa is Miami Man.
Amirpour penned the screenplay and is directing.
Described as a cross between The Road Warrior and Pretty in Pink, The Bad Batch is a post-apocalyptic tale set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals reside. The film is a love story about a cannibal (Momoa) and his food.
