Tastes Good: Suki Waterhouse, Diego Luna, Reeves & Carrey Part of “The Bad Batch”

Suki Waterhouse will be surrounded by Diego Luna, Keanu Reeves, Jim Carrey and the already announced Jason Momoa in Ana Lily Amirpour‘s much anticipated sophomore feature, The Bad Batch. Produced by Annapurna’s Megan Ellison, VICE’s Danny Gabai and Sina Sayyah, lensing begins next month in the drought friendly capitol of California.

Gist: This is a post-apocalyptic tale set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals reside. The film is a love story about a cannibal (Momoa) and his food. Suki Waterhouse will play Arlen, Jason Momoa will play Miami Man, Diego Luna will play Jimmy, Keanu Reeves will play The Dream and Jim Carrey will play The Hermit.

Worth Noting: Of the cast we know the least, Suki Waterhouse had a bit part in Luis Prieto’s Pusher and next in line has Burr Steers’ Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Do We Care?: Our Nicholas Bell noted that A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night belongs to “a shortlist of modern and effective vampire films, evoking the trials and tribulations of the eternal creatures of the night, beings adrift that no longer remember what it is to want,” so when Annapurna Pictures finally announced they were financing this future rock star’s next, we were psyched. A possibly wacky premise, the fusion of two genres a la Refn Drive and the announced testosterone mix makes this a high interest item for 2016.
