I’m pretty stoked about The Guest, I’m a fan of the creative team’s past work and they’re putting together a great, eclectic cast. The latest addition, per Variety, is Sheila Kelley (Singles, Matchstick Men, “Lost”).
The film stars Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”) as David, an ex-Marine who returns from a tour of duty and is taken in by a fallen comrade’s family, who he proceeds to terrorize. Kelley will play the mother of David’s deceased brother-in-arms. Lance Reddick, Brendan Meyer and Maika Monroe also star.
The project hails from the filmmaking team behind V/H/S, V/H/S/2 and Lionsgate’s upcoming horror movie You’re Next, including director Adam Wingard, writer Simon Barrett and producers Keith Calder and Jessica Wu of Snoot Entertainment. The film is currently shooting in New Mexico.
