Ozark star Julia Garner will next star in the film

Ozark star Julia Garner has landed her next leading role in the upcoming horror Weapons.

Directed by barbarian filmmaker Zach Cregger, the film is described as an “interconnected multi-story horror epic” that loosely follows the plot of the 1999 blockbuster Magnolia (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Garner will star alongside Dune actor Josh Brolin in the film, which is expected to begin filming next month in Atlanta.

In addition to directing, Cregger will also collaborate with Barbarian producers Roy Lee, JD Lifshitz and Raphael Margules to produce the feature. Miri Yoon is also on board to produce.

After wrapping up her role as petty criminal Ruth Langmore in Ozark in 2022, Garner soon returned to Netflix to star in the hit drama series Inventing Anna – where she played convicted con artist Anna Delvey.

Her film roles include the 2019 drama The Assistant, in which she starred opposite Succession’s Matthew Macfadyen, and the thriller The Royal Hotel opposite Jessica Henwick.

The three-time Primetime Emmy Award winner will also team up with The Invisible Man director Leigh Whannell for his film adaptation of Wolf Man.

Following Ryan Gosling’s departure from the project, Wolf Man will see Garner and Christopher Abbott (Poor Things) play a couple whose home is attacked by the infamous supernatural predator.

The film marks a reunion for Garner and Abbott, after previously working together on the 2011 horror film Martha Marcy May Marlene.

The anticipated MCU blockbuster features a star-studded cast including The Last of Us actor Pedro Pascal, The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby, Stranger Things’ Joseph Quinn and The Bear’s Ebon Moss-Bachrach.

Filming will begin in London this summer after production on Weapons has wrapped.

Weapons does not have a release date yet.
