Joining Julia Roberts, Andrew Garfield and Ayo Edibiri, Chloë Sevigny is to co-star in Luca Guadagnino’s drama, After The Hunt.

Having already worked with the filmmaker for 2022’s Bones And All, Chloë Sevigny is to star in Luca Guadagnino’s forthcoming thriller, After The Hunt.

Sevigny is the latest addition to an already starry cast, which so far includes Julia Roberts, Andrew Garfield, Ayo Edebiri and another Guadagnino favourite, Michael Stuhlbarg.

Guadagnino has been busy of late; his most recent film, the tennis-based love triangle Challengers, emerged to critical applause in April, while his next opus, Queer – starring Daniel Craig and based on the book of the same name by William S Burroughs – is out later in 2024.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the Sevigny news, After The Hunt is due to begin filming this summer – so presumably within the next few weeks. Written by Nora Garrett, it’s a dark and knotty-sounding drama that involves two Yale professors and a potentially career-ruining accusation made by a student. Those who’ve read the script have praised its depth of character and dramatic tension – Script Shadow even argues that it’s one of the best screenplays of 2024.

From what we can gather, Julia Roberts and Andrew Garfield will play the two Yale professors, while Ayo Edebiri will play the student, though we haven’t seen official confirmation of that anywhere as yet. Nor do we know who Sevigny will appear as, though it’s likely to be a slightly smaller role given that the triangle of characters at the drama’s heart are already taken.

Nor is this the only film Guadagnino has on the go; he’s also working on an adaptation of the novel Separate Rooms, a TV adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’s The Shards, and there’s also been talk of a new film based on William Golding’s Lord Of The Flies.

More on all this as we get it.
