Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Kristen Cui, Abby Quinn, and Rupert Grint are going to join Dave Bautista in M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie Knock At The Cabin, based on the book The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay.
Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge play two fathers who take their daughter (Kristen Cui) on a trip to a cabin in the woods. According to the blurb:
“But as the family gets settled, their relaxing forest getaway morphs into something out of a nightmare when four people (Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Abby Quinn) come knocking and take them hostage. the reason they’re there might be more frightening than the predicament they’re in.”
The four visitors have something to do with an impending apocalypse, and the family of three will have to make a difficult choice to stop the end of the world.
Universal Pictures are partnering with Blinding Edge Pictures. The movie is co-written by Shyamalan, Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman.
Author Stephen King wrote that the original novel was:
“…thought-provoking and terrifying.”
Andrew Liptak of The Verge wrote:
“Good horror stories look at the world around us to draw inspiration as to what could go wrong, and with this book, Tremblay has penned a story that’s not only a nightmare as it plays out on the page, but one that’s grimly reflective of the times that we live in.”
The movie is produced by Shyamalan, Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan with Steven Schneider, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos, and Ashley Fox rounding out the executive producer roster. Knock at the Cabin is set to release in theatres on Feb. 3, 2023.
