Gareth Evans and Dan Stevens team for revenge thriller Apostle

The Guest Dan Stevens

Two of the coolest movies to be released in recent years were THE RAID and THE GUEST, and now THE RAID director Gareth Evans and THE GUEST star Dan Stevens (pictured above) are teaming up to make some coolness together.

Evans will direct Stevens in a period revenge thriller titled APOSTLE, which tells the story of a man who 

travels to a remote island and attempts to rescue his sister after she's kidnapped by a religious cult, which is demanding a ransom for her return. But it soon becomes clear that the cult will regret the day it baited this man, who digs deeper and deeper into the secrets and lies upon which the commune is built.

Evans has dealt with the subject of a religious cult before, in his V/H/S/2 segment Safe Haven. I'm assuming that APOSTLE will stand apart from Safe Haven in that no horned demons will be showing up, although if Evans wants to show me the sight of Stevens fighting a horned demon I'm certainly not going to complain.

APOSTLE is being produced by XYZ Films, Severn Screen, and Evans' company One More One Productions, with XYZ handling international sales. The movie is expected to start filming in the UK in March of next year.
