Having earned $79 million at the worldwide box office (to date), writer/director Ari Aster's HEREDITARY is distributor A24's biggest theatrical success - and by the time the film achieved that honor, Aster and A24 were already in production on their next collaboration, a genre project that has the working title MIDSOMMER.

BAFTA nominated actress Florence Pugh announced that she has landed the lead role in the film, and it's a role she's very excited to be taking on. Pugh took to her Twitter account to say, "What a role this will be… god am I pumped/nervous/can’t believe this is happening."

Pugh's co-stars will include Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, Vilhem Blomgren, William Jackson Harper, Ellora Torchia, and Archie Madekwe.

Aster's screenplay centers on 

a young woman, already dealing with the death of her parents, who joins her boyfriend and his friends on a trip to Sweden, specifically to a remote town with unique midsummer traditions. Things go south from there.

MIDSOMMER is being filmed in Budapest, Hungary, standing in for Sweden.

HEREDITARY was released last month. Our own Chris Bumbray gave the film a 9/10 review.
