Andrew Garfield to Star in Thriller from ‘It Follows’ Director


Andrew Garfield will be starring in the next film from director David Robert Mitchell, who brought us the 2014 horror film It Follows.

As per THR, Garfield is set to star in Under the Silver Lake, “a modern-day noir crime thriller set in Los Angeles.” The plot details are still not known.

Mitchell has also penned the screenplay for the film, which will see Michael De Luca (American History X, The Social Network, Moneyball) producing alongside Chris Bender, Jake Weiner, and Adele Romanski.

Mitchell made his feature debut with the 2010 dramedy The Myth of the American Sleepover, a picture that went on to take home a special jury prize at the SXSW Film Festival and have its international premiere at Cannes. It Follows, Mitchell’s follow-up, impressed critics and audiences and became a cult sensation thanks to a nice distribution rollout. All eyes are now on Under the Silver Lake.

Also on the horizon for Andrew Garfield is Hacksaw Ridge, Mel Gibson’s next directorial effort, and Silence, the next feature from director Martin Scorsese.
