Anya Taylor-Joy, one of the stars of M. Night Shyamalan’s hit Glass, will topline Edgar Wright’s next feature, Last Night in Soho, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Working Title, which backed Wright’s Baby Driver, is producing the project, which will be released by Focus Features.

Wright co-wrote with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful). Details are scant, but the project is described as a horror thriller set in the hip London district of Soho. A summer start is being eyed.

Taylor-Joy broke through with the Sundance horror hit The Witch (2015). She then nabbed the lead, and held her own, against a scene-chewing James McAvoy in Shyamalan’s 2017 surprise horror hit Split, and reprised the character in Glass, which has crossed the $200 million mark at the worldwide box office.

Taylor-Joy voices a starring role on the upcoming Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and has the X-Men spinoff movie The New Mutants waiting (and waiting) to be released. She is repped by CAA and Troika in the UK.
