Moses Sumney and Halsey are set to star in Ti West’s next A24-distributed horror film, titled MaXXXine. The movie is the third installment of West’s X franchise, which kicked off with X and Pearl (both of which got released in 2022). MaXXXine also stars Mia Goth in the title role, as well as Kevin Bacon, Lily Collins, Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Monaghan, and Giancarlo Esposito. Find A24’s cast announcement here, as well as a teaser for MaXXXine below.
Sumney has acted in a handful of film and TV shows, including Creed, Random Acts of Flyness, and the forthcoming HBO series The Idol. Halsey has done voice acting work in American Dad and Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, and they have starred in Roadies, A Star Is Born, and more.
West’s next film takes place in the 1980s, following the bloody events of X. Goth’s character Maxine travels to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming an actress. A teaser for MaXXXine first appeared following the credits of Pearl, which hit theaters last September.
X arrived in March of last year and chronicled a group of aspiring porn stars as they attempted to shoot an adult film on a creepy farm. That movie also starred Goth, Kid Cudi, Jenna Ortega, and Brittany Snow. A teaser for the film’s prequel Pearl appeared following the credits for X.
MaXXXine is written and directed by West. Production on the film will commence later this month.
