Ryan Coogler’s Supernatural Horror Thriller Starring Michael B. Jordan Expands Its Cast

The details around the new supernatural horror thriller that Black Panther writer-director Ryan Coogler has in the works at Warner Bros. have been kept very hush-hush.

News has been leaking out, however, with The Hollywood Reporter sharing that the movie takes place in the Jim Crow South and may or may not include vampires and/or “Southern supernatural traditions.”

We also have some casting news. Michael B. Jordan (pictured above in Black Panther; other credits include Creed and Fahrenheit 451) is set to star in what THR is reporting may be dual roles. We also found out today from THR that Delroy Lindo (Get Shorty, playing Mr. Nancy in the upcoming Anansi Boys series) is on board to play a character with “a musical element,” and that (via Deadline) Jack O’Connell (Unbroken, Ferrari) will play the villain.

This isn’t the only project that Coogler has in the works. Last March, we found out that the writer-director is also working on a reboot or revival of The X-Files. Where that project stands, and whether Coogler is doing more than producing it is unknown, though we do know that there has been talk of a Black Panther 3 and that his production company is behind the upcoming Marvel series, Ironheart.

As for this new (to us) Warner Bros. project, THR reported that it will go into production in New Orleans later this spring, and that the studio currently has it set to release on March 7, 2025. Hopefully we’ll get more details about the film, including its title and what the story is, before then! icon-paragraph-end
