Following on from award-winning success off the back of Marriage Story in 2019, as well as a slew of appearances within the Star Wars franchise, Adam Driver is returning to the silver screen once again. This time, the Oscar nominee will front sci-fi thriller, 65, the brain child of A Quiet Place writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods who will also direct and write the forthcoming project.
Amid COVID-19, the Sony-led film plot is unfortunately being kept under wraps with little known about the movie at this stage. However, as Deadline reports, it will also be produced by Sam Raimi and Zainab Azizi for Raimi Productions along with Debbie Liebling. With a behind-the-scenes crew such as this, awards hype is bubbling.
Along with Driver who was nominated in January for an Academy Award for Best Actor in his role for Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, the actor was also nominated in the best supporting actor category for Spike Lee’s BlacKKKlansman. Elsewhere, Beck and Woods’ A Quiet Place, a 2018 horror film based around a family who are hunted by noise-sensitive creatures, earned Critics Choice and Writers Guild of America nominations. This was in addition to fetching $340 million USD as the box office. The script won Best Film Screenplay at the Saturn Awards.
It was also Raimi who produced the highly successful Spider-Man films for Sony between 2002 and 2007.
The line up is already boasting some of the biggest names in Hollywood production so stay tuned for further developments and updates on the mysterious film.
