A24 has announced an April 1 New York start of principal photography on the psychological horror film False Positive starring Ilana Glazer, Justin Theroux and Pierce Brosnan.
John Lee will direct the project, which he co-wrote with Glazer, whose five-season run on Comedy Central series Broad City is coming to an end. Lee directed episodes of that show, co-created the animation parody series Wonder Showzen, and directed Pee-wee’s Big Holiday for Netflix.
Lee produces alongside Glazer, and Jonathan Wang. Plot details remain under wraps. Zainab Jah, Gretchen Mol, Sophia Bush and Josh Hamilton round out the cast.
A24 is carving a name for itself in the elevated horror genre. Last year it released Ari Aster’s Sundance 2018 buzz title Hereditary starring Toni Collette, and the company has set an August 9 release for Aster’s follow-up Midsommar starring Florence Pugh and Will Poulter.
Midsommar has been tipped to premiere in Cannes and centres on a couple who go on vacation in Scandinavia, where they become caught up in a pagan cult.
