Taylor Kitsch (“21 Bridges,” “American Assassin”) has been attached to star in Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi thriller “Inferno” for Stuart Ford’s AGC Studios.
Kitsch will play a cop called in to investigate a seemingly ordinary murder in the New Mexico desert. The arrival of the FBI confirms his suspicions that something bigger – perhaps extraterrestrial – is at play.
The hunt for the killer puts him face-to-face with a humanoid beast who will stop at nothing to exterminate the one witness to the crime. Filming will get underway in early 2020.
“Inferno” marks Blomkamp’s first feature since 2015’s “Chappie”.
