Andrea Riseborough (pictured below; Oblivion) is set to star opposite Alexander Skarsgard in Warner Bros.’ The Hidden, reports Variety.
As previously reported, Matt and Ross Duffer will direct from their own spec script.
“The project is an elevated horror-thriller about a family hiding in a bomb shelter after escaping a mysterious outbreak.”
Roy Lee, Mason Novick, Lawrence Grey and Richard Zanuck will produce; John Middleton and Sebastian Aloi exec produce.
WB acquired the Duffers’ spec late last year in a competitive situation. With Riseborough’s deal now done, the film should secure a greenlight shortly as one was contingent on getting its two stars to close deals.
