The Last of Us star Pedro Pascal has will star in the next horror offering from Barbian director Zach Cregger, it has been confirmed.
Pascal is currently riding a career high following the success of the HBO video game adaption and his continuing to dabble in the genre will undoubtedly delight fans.
Currently in pre-production at Warner Bros., plot details for Weapons are being closely guarded, but it is known that the studio wishes to fast-track the production following the unexpected success of Cregger’s Barbarian.
Described as a multi and inter-related story horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Magnolia, the 1999 actor-crammed showcase from filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson,” the mystery and the talent attached to Weapons will no doubt pique the interest of genre fans and general audiences alike.
This is Pascal’s second high-profile casting following his The Last of Us success, with news coming just two weeks ago that the actor was set for Ridley Scott’s hotly anticipated Gladiator sequel. With big things on the horizon for the talent involved, Weapons immediately holds considerable promise despite the lack of solid details.
This is one we will be keeping our eye on.
