Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is a stunning, singular debut film. Thankfully we won’t have to wait long for her next film, The Bad Batch, which is being described as a dystopian love story centered on a community of cannibals living in a Texas wasteland. Production starts next month and according to Deadline, it’s set to have an interesting cast.
Diego Luna, Suki Waterhouse, and Jason Momoa (starring as a character called “Miami Man”) are all on board. Now it’s been announced that Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey have signed on. Wow. Even cooler, Reeves is playing a character called “The Dream” and Carrey is “The Hermit.”
I adore A Girl Walks Home At Night and am really looking forward to this one. It’ll be interesting to see what Amirpour can do with a decent budget.
