‘Keeper’ – Tatiana Maslany Starring in Next Horror Movie from ‘Longlegs’ Director

A24 is aiming to recreate the breakout success of last year’s Talk to Me by reuniting with Causeway Films (Talk to Me) and Ari Aster’s Square Peg (Hereditary) for a feature length adaptation of Masha Ko‘s Sundance short film The Looming.

Masha Ko will write and direct The Looming.

About the short film: “When a virtual home assistant speaker, Luna, picks up the strange noise Chester has heard in his house, he realizes that it may not be a symptom of dementia.”

The short film stars Joseph Lopez, Kolten Horner, Brianne Buishas, and Alyssa Nicole.

Ko is an award-winning director and human installation artist, with the goal to highlight the stories of individuals who are often overlooked by society and whose lives are rarely celebrated through artistic forms. That’s evident in the premise for her short film, which played in the Midnight Short Film Program at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. During the festival, Ko won the Short Film Special Jury Prize for Directing the psychological thriller.

The jurors said of Ko’s short, “Terrifyingly beautiful seems like an oxymoronic phrase, but this terrifying yet beautiful short left us deeply moved and served as a haunting reminder to not send your parents’ calls to voicemail.”

The success of the short clearly caught the attention of A24, and its plot feels reminiscent of 2020’s Relic.

A24 will produce alongside Square Peg’s Ari Aster, Lars Knudsen, and Tyler Campellone and Causeway Films’ Samantha Jennings and Kristina Ceyton. A24 will finance and handle worldwide releasing.

Stay tuned for additional details on The Looming as they arrive.
