Winston Duke and Zazie Beetz have been tapped to star in an upcoming sci-fi thriller, and it sounds just as creepy as Us!
Nine Days will be directed by Edson Oda and it will also star Bill Skarsgárd, Benedict Wong and David Rysdahl.
Duke is set to play a reclusive man in an unreal house, “distant from a reality that we know,” where he will interview potential candidates, including the characters of Beetz and Skarsgárd, to enjoy the privilege he once had–to be born.
Oda, an alum of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, developed Nine Days through the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program Labs. Producers of the film include Datari Turner.
“I’m thrilled to be working with such an incredible cast and amazing team. So grateful for all the support I have received. Nine Days is a very personal story to me, and I can’t imagine a better team to help me tell it,” said the director.
Both Beetz and Duke have multiple films set up for the next several years. Duke will appear in Netflix’s Wonderland next while Atlanta star Beetz will be seen on the big screen in Wounds and Lucy in the Sky.
