New Horror Label Nocturna’s First Film

Zazie Beetz (Joker, Deadpool 2) is set to star in the upcoming horror movie They Will Kill You. This will be the first feature film from Nocturna, Skydance Media’s new horror label, helmed by Andy and Barbara Muschietti (The Flash, It).

The Actress: Zazie Beetz

In They Will Kill You, Zazie Beetz’s character answers an ad for a housekeeper, taking her to a high-rise in New York City. Unbeknownst to her, the community’s had several people disappear in the past few years.

This won’t be Beetz’s first foray into horror. In 2023, she starred as Bo in “Mazey Day” (2023), a supernatural horror episode of the anthology series Black Mirror. She’s also no stranger to the big screen, having also acted in Joker (2019), where she played the titular character’s object of affection, Sophie Dumond, and in Deadpool 2 (2018) as mutant mercenary Domino in Deadpool 2 (2018).

The Creative Leads: Andy and Barbara Muschietti

Andy and Barabara Muschietti are a pair of Argentine film writers, with Barbara Muschietti also producing and Andy Muschietti also directing. The Muschiettis had their start in horror, with their debut film, Mama, coming out in 2013 with Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) attached as executive producer. They went on to work on It Chapter One (2017) and It Chapter Two (2019).

In March 2024, they partnered with Skydance Media to create a new horror label: Nocturna. They co-own the label and are in charge of the label’s creative direction. They Will Kill You will be the label’s first film, though more are on the way, with Nocturna’s stated goal being the release of two new films every year.

The Writers: Kirill Sokolov and Alex Litvak

Co-writers of They Will Kill You’s script, both Kirill Sokolov and Alex Litvak have experience in the thriller genre. Litvak’s writing first appeared in theaters in 2010 with the release of Predators, and he’s worked on The Three Musketeers (2011) and The Society of Second-Born Nobles (2020) since then. 

Kirill Sokolov’s debut feature-length film, Why Don’t You Just Die! was both written and directed by Sokolov. It was a dark comedy released in 2018 to general critical acclaim, even winning first place in Window to Europe, the film festival it debuted at. In addition to co-writing They Will Kill You, Sokolov is also set to direct the film.

There’s no word yet on when the film will be released, so stay tuned for updates!
