The film will be directed by Panos Cosmatos, the director known for his work in the beloved film “Mandy.” It’s written by Andrew Kevin Walker, a screenwriter with plenty of credits in Hollywood, most notably, “Se7en.”

The news of the casting were broken by Deadline, who reports that Stewart and Isaac wille be playing a married couple named Raoul and Alex. The plot claims the film is set in the ‘80s, and that the couple lives in a luxurious apartment, leaving at night to party and have fun. In one of these outings, the two encounter a mysterious woman called Nameless, who introduces them to all manners of pleasures and violent encounters.

“This director, this writer, these incredible actors, vampires, choice 80’s punk, style and attitude for miles… that’s the film we’re bringing you today,” said producer Adam McKay. “We think it’s wildly commercial and wildly artful. Our ambitions are to make a movie that ripples through popular culture, fashion, music, and film. Can you tell how excited I am?”
