2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Untitled Trey Edward Shults Film with The Weeknd

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Untitled Trey Edward Shults Film with The Weeknd

After Krisha (2015), It Comes at Night (2017) and Waves (2019), American indie filmmaker Trey Edward Shults might actually be shooting from both sides of the hip in 2024. The first project to see the light could very well be a film he developed with Abel Tesfaye aka “The Weeknd”. They co-wrote the currently untitled project together, and The Weeknd stars alongside Jenna Ortega and Barry Keoghan. Cinematographer Chayse Irvin is onboard and for the composers we find OPN + The Weeknd. Production would have taken place in February so this is more than ready acquisitions.

Gist: The project has no logline yet but was written by Shults, Tesfaye and Reza Fahim.

Production Co./Producers: Abel Tesfaye, Reza Fahim, Kevin Turen and Harrison Kreiss.

Prediction: Premieres.

Sales: TBA.
