Inferno: Taylor Kitsch to star in Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi thriller

Taylor Kitsch (21 Bridges, Waco, American Assassin) will star in Oscar-nominated director Neill Blomkamp’s (District 9, Elysium, Chappie) Inferno, an upcoming sci-fi thriller from AGC Studios, Deadline has confirmed.

Kitsch will play a cop who is called to investigate a seemingly ordinary murder in the New Mexico desert. The arrival of the FBI confirms his suspicions that something bigger – perhaps extraterrestrial – is at play. The hunt for the killer puts him face-to-face with a humanoid beast who will stop at nothing to exterminate the one witness to the crime.

“I am very excited to be getting behind the camera and making Inferno with AGC. The film is filled with themes and concepts that I find deeply fascinating, I feel lucky to be shooting it,” said Blomkamp.

AGC Studios’ Stuart Ford added: “Over the last decade Neill Blomkamp has proven himself to be one of the most innovative creators of science fiction cinema in the world and I’m convinced that Inferno is going to break new ground and take Neill’s body of work to even greater heights.”

Production on the film is scheduled to begin in early 2020.
