‘MaXXXine’ Adds Lily Collins, Kevin Bacon, Michelle Monaghan, Giancarlo Esposito, Halsey & More To Cast
DEADLINE – Ti West has locked in an all-star cast for his Mia Goth-led A24 horror pic MaXXXine, with Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.), Moses Sumney (The Idol), Michelle Monaghan (Nanny), Bobby Cannavale (The Watcher), Lily Collins (Emily in Paris), Halsey (Americana), Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul) and Kevin Bacon (City on a Hill) closing deals for roles.
MaXXXine is the third title in A24‘s first major horror franchise, on the heels of West’s films X and Pearl, both of which were released to much acclaim last year. The ’70s-set X had Goth pulling double duty as Maxine, who sees her pornography-shooting friends violently murdered in Texas, and one of their elderly assailants, Pearl. The latter film, set in 1918, meanwhile, served up an origin story for the latter villain character.
MaXXXine reverses the franchise’s trajectory through time to pick with Maxine after the violent events of X, as their sole survivor continues her journey towards fame, setting out to make it as an actress in 1980s Los Angeles. A24, Jacob Jaffke, West, Goth, Kevin Turen and Harrison Kreiss will produce the film, which heads into production this month.
Well known for her portrayal of Sovereign High Priestess Ayesha in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy films, Debicki will reprise the role in franchise ender Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3., which hits theaters on May 5th. The actress otherwise best known for her Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Princess Diana on The Crown has also previously been seen on series like AMC’s The Night Manager. Other notable film credits include Tenet, Widows, The Cloverfield Paradox, The Tale, Breath, Everest, Macbeth and The Great Gatsby.
Debicki is repped by CAA.
