Ari Aster’s films always feature an impressive ensemble, but his next project will certainly be the most star-studded one yet. Pedro Pascal, Emma Stone, and Austin Butler will star opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Aster’s upcoming A24 film Eddington.

Phoenix previously collaborated with Aster on Beau Is Afraid, and they’re gearing up for another collaboration. The Oscar-winner will lead his next film Eddington, and he’ll be joined by the two-time Oscar winner Emma Stone (Poor Things), Oscar nominee Austin Butler (Dune: Part Two), and Emmy nominee Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us).

In addition to these four A-list stars, the supporting cast of this project will also include Luke Grimes (Yellowstone), Deirdre O’Connell (Outer Range), Micheal Ward (Top Boy), and Clifton Collins Jr. (Jockey).

Aster previously discussed Eddington in one of his Reddit AMAs and said he’s been plotting a Western-noir dark ensemble comedy for years. He described it as a “revisionist Western” that’s “one foot in the Western and one foot is even more heavily in the noir genre.”

Eddington will mark Aster’s fourth A24 film following horrors Hereditary and Midsommar and tragicomedy Beau Is Afraid. In addition to writing and directing it, he’ll also be credited as a producer with his Square Peg partner Lars Knudsen.
