Ryan Coogler's mystery horror film casts Hailee Steinfeld


Although very little is known about the film, Warner Bros. and Ryan Coogler are hard at work on his very mysterious, currently untitled horror film. The project was first announced in January, with WB winning the rights to the film in an intense bidding war. Now we have learned that Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye, Pitch Perfect) joins the ever-growing ensemble cast.

Accordingly The Hollywood Reporter, Steinfeld has signed on for an unspecified role in the film, which Coogler wrote and will direct. Plot details are still unclear, but filming is set to begin this month in New Orleans. Jordan, who previously worked with Coogler Black Panther And BelieveHe is rumored to be playing Gemini. The film is also believed to be set in the Jim Crow-era South and involve vampires. Again, none of this has been officially confirmed, so it should be taken with caution. It's currently vaguely described as a “supernatural thriller.”

Steinfeld has been rising to Hollywood's A-list for some time now. Lately, she's been spending a lot of time in the Marvel Universe and appearing on the Disney+ show Hawkeye as Kate Bishop, who reprized the role last year The wonders as well as. She also voices Gwen Stacy Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse And Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Her other notable credits include: Real courage and that 2018 Transformers spin off bumblebee. This will be her first role in a straight horror film.

The actress joins a cast that complements each other very well. We found out recently Delroy Lindo (The harder they fall, the 5 Bloods) has signed up for a rolewith Jack O'Connell (Ferrari) and Wunmi Mosaku (Lovecraft country) also on board.

Warner Bros. seems to be going all out here. They struck a unique deal with Coogler that allowed him to regain some of the rights to the film itself after a few years. They also outbid many other studios in the city, but the price they paid is not yet known. However, it's not hard to understand why. With Coogler he made one of the most successful films of all time Black Panther after restarting the Rocky Franchise very successful with Believe. He has a golden touch and critics love his stuff. That's a rare combination.

Ryan Coogler's untitled horror film is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 7, 2025. We will keep you updated as more details become available.
