Adam Driver finished his Star Wars journey last year, and he’s ready for new creative endeavors. The Oscar-nominated actor is set to star in sci-fi thriller 65 by A Quiet Place writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods.

Not much is known about this project at the moment, with plot details still being kept under wraps. Beck and Woods wrote the script together, and they’ll be in charge of directing it. The duo’s previous credits include horror movies Haunt and Nightlight. They will also produce the project under their newly formed Beck/Woods banner along. Sony will be in charge of distributing this sci-fi thriller, with Sam Raimi also serving as one of the producers.

65 is one of several movies Driver currently has in the work, fresh off his Academy Award-nominated turn in Marriage Story. He’s set to star in Annette alongside Marion Cotillard and Simon Helberg and is currently busy shooting Ridley Scott’s next film The Last Duel. He’s also in the talks to star in Scott’s film about the Gucci family fashion dynasty alongside Lady Gaga and Robert De Niro.
