  • Ayo Edebiri and Murray Bartlett, both Primetime Emmy nominees, will star in the A24 horror film Opus alongside other talented actors.
  • Opus, directed by Mark Anthony Green, tells the story of a pop star’s return after a long disappearance, but plot details are still unknown.
  • The cast of Opus, combining rising stars and seasoned actors, hints at a strong ensemble performance that could make it A24’s next horror hit.

The Bear’s Ayo Edebiri and The Last of Us’s Murray Bartlett, among others, team up for a new A24 horror film titled Opus. Both Bartlett and Edebiri were recently nominated for Primetime Emmy Awards for their roles in their respective shows. Bartlett was also nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Welcome to Chippendales.

Now, Edebiri and Bartlett will come together to star in an upcoming A24 horror film, Opus. According to DeadlineThe Bear and The Last of Us stars will join forces with fellow actors John Malkovich, Amber Midthunder, Stephanie Suganami, Young Mazino, and Tatanka Means for the film. Juliette Lewis is also rumored, but not yet confirmed, to have a role in Opus.

With A Cast Like This, Opus Could Be A24’s Next Horror Hit

The full plot details of Opus are not yet confirmed, but the general synopsis reveals a story involving the return of a pop star following his decades-long disappearance. Opus is directed by first-time feature director Mark Anthony Green. The film will be produced by Collin Creighton, Brad Weston, Poppy Hanks, Jelani Johnson, and Josh Bachove. Even with few plot details available, the Opus cast alone leaves a lot to look forward to.

Opus combines up-and-coming talents like Edebiri and Midthunder (who had a breakout performance in last year’s Prey), with more seasoned stars like Malkovich. Combining breakout stars with veteran talents is common for A24-distributed works. The company has employed similar strategies in horror films like Green Room and Hereditary, boding well for the repeat of this tactic in Opus.

All of these actors–most recently in the case of Midthunder, Edebiri, and Bartlett–have showcased their scene-stealing abilities, hinting at a strong ensemble cast for Opus. Bartlett has done so in both The White Lotus and The Last Of Us, wherein his Emmy-nominated performance came from just a single episode. Edebiri has taken the TV world by storm with her alluring performance as Sydney in The Bear, as well as her role in this year’s wacky dark comedy Bottoms, whereas Midthunder captivated audiences with her lead role in Prey. All of these factors are good signs for Opus, which has the chance to become A24’s next horror hit.

A24’s most recent horror movie, Talk To Me, earned $90.5 million at the box office on a reported $4.5 million budget.
