Flesh Of The Gods, a 1980s LA-set vampire thriller will be directed by Mandy director, Panos Cosmatos – and will star Kristen Stewart and Oscar Isaac.

Strap yourselves in. Twilight star Kristen Stewart is heading back to the world of vampires – and she’s set to be joined by no less than Oscar Isaac. The duo are uniting for what sounds like a deliciously strange project that stems from the mind of Panos Cosmatos, the celebrated director of Mandy. (We’re not sure what happened to Nekrokosm, which Cosmatos announced in 2022.)

The film will be “set in Los Angeles during the 1980s, and the story follows a married couple, Raoul (Isaac) and Alex (Stewart), who descend each evening from their luxury skyscraper condo and head into an electric nighttime realm of LA.”

Honestly, given the names involved here, we’d watch that film and not even miss the vampires. But it gets better. According to the synopsis over at The Hollywood Reporter, ‘when they cross paths with a mysterious and enigmatic woman and her hard-partying cabal, Raoul and Alex are seduced into a glamorous, surrealistic world of hedonism, thrills, and violence.’

Mandy was a surreal and hypnotic film, full of graphic violence and a unique visual style that really showcased Panos Cosmatos’ flair as a director. Speaking about the new project, Cosmatos said, “Like Los Angeles itself Flesh of the Gods inhabits the liminal realm between fantasy and nightmare. Both propulsive and hypnotic, Flesh will take you on a hot rod joy ride deep into the glittering heart of hell.”

‘The glittering heart of hell?’ Sounds good to us. Seven writer Andrew Kevin Walker has penned the script, and Adam McKay is producing. While we don’t know a lot else about this, that’s a lot of talent involved and the thought of Stewart and Isaac stalking 1980s Los Angeles is an enticing one indeed. The film will be going to market at Cannes and we imagine it will be snapped up pretty quickly. We’ll bring you more on this one a we hear it.
