EXCLUSIVE: We can tell you first that Joker and Deadpool 2 actress Zazie Beetz has signed on to headline They Will Kill You, the first feature from Nocturna, the horror label formed this year by Skydance and Andy & Barbara Muschietti.

Sokolov is known for his dark sense of humor, and this movie follows a woman who answers a help-wanted ad to be a housekeeper in a mysterious New York City high-rise. She doesn’t realize she is entering a community that has seen a number of disappearances over the years.

They Will Kill You will be produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, the Muschiettis and Dan Kagan. It will also be produced by Nocturna Co-Heads of Film, Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder.

Launched in 2024 by Skydance and the Muschiettis, Nocturna produces high-quality horror features for global audiences in both theatrical and streaming.

Andy and Barbara Muschietti are working on Welcome to Derry, the the Max prequel series that extends Stephen King’s IT franchise, which they brought to the screen in a two-part $1.17 billion box office bonanza. The Muschiettis have a first-look deal with Warner Bros, and it was revealed last summer that Andy would direct Batman: Brave and the Bold.

Beetz is repped by Entertainment 360, WME and Sloan Offer Weber Dern.
