Lady Macbeth star Florence Pugh will lead Hereditary director Ari Asters next movie, an untitled horror for A24.

Pugh confirmed the casting during a TCA panel for BBC series Little Drummer Girl and tweeted about it late last night, saying, “What a role this will be…god am I pumped/nervous/cant believe this is happening.”

Aster has written the script for the new film with Lars Knudsen producing. The Wicker Man-esque plot will follow a young woman who joins her boyfriend on a summer trip where things quickly go awry thanks to a local pagan cult.

Horror Hereditary, starring Toni Collette, has been a breakout hit for A24, taking $80M global to date.
