Julia Garner Joins Josh Brolin in Zach Cregger Film

Julia Garner Joins Josh Brolin in Zach Cregger Film

Julia Garner, emerging quickly as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand talents, has nabbed the starring role in Weapons, the New Line horror movie from Barbarian filmmaker Zach Cregger.

Garner will star opposite Josh Brolin in the feature, which is due to begin shooting in mid-May in Atlanta.

Cregger wrote the top secret script for Weapons, which is described as an interrelated, multistory horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Magnolia, the 1999 actor-crammed showcase from filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.

The project is also a reunion of the Barbarian producing team. Cregger is producing along with Roy Lee of Vertigo and J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules of BoulderLight Pictures. Vertigo’s Miri Yoon also produces. 

Garner gained notice for her three-time Emmy-winning turn in Netflix’s acclaimed crime drama Ozark. Since wrapping that up, she has been on a tear about nabbing big-studio gigs, in the process of becoming one of the town’s go-to’s. She is in post on Paramount’s upcoming psychological thriller Apartment 7A and is currently in production opposite Christopher Abbott on Blumhouse/Universal’s Wolf Man, being directed in New Zealand by Leigh Whannell.

She recently nabbed the gig of the Silver Surfer in Marvel’s Fantastic Four. The feature, which will also star Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Joseph Quinn and Ebon Moss-Bachrach, will film after Weapons, in London in late summer.

Garner is repped by UTA, LBI Entertainment and Sloane Offer.
