‘The Watchers’ – ‘Barbarian’ Star Georgina Campbell Joins the Cast of Ireland Set Horror Movie

Georgina Campbell survived the horrors of last year’s Barbarian, and she’s now set to return to the genre with New Line’s The Watchers.

THR reports that Campbell has joined Dakota Fanning to star in Ishana Night Shyamalan‘s feature debut.

The Watchers follows “Mina, a 28-year old artist who gets stranded in an expansive, untouched forest in western Ireland. When Mina finds shelter, she unknowingly becomes trapped alongside three strangers that are watched and stalked by mysterious creatures each night.”

Production is tentatively to begin this summer in Ireland, with theatrical release scheduled for June 7, 2024.

Campbell will play one of the three strangers, though no additional character details have been revealed at this time. Here’s hoping her character has an easier time than Barbarian‘s Tess, but we have a hunch that what’s lurking in the forest isn’t good news. It is a horror movie, after all.

It was previously reported that Fanning will play Mina.

Shymalan wrote the script, adapting Irish author A.M. Shine‘s novel that was initially published in October 2021. Ishana Night Shyamalan most recently wrote and directed on Apple TV+ series “Servant,” and served as second unit director on the hit features Old and Knock at the Cabin.

M. Night Shyamalan and Ashwin Rajan will produce through Blinding Edge Pictures. Nimitt Mankad will also produce via Inimitable Pictures. Jo Homewood and Stephen Dembitzer are executive producing.

“We couldn’t be more excited to make Ishana’s first film with The Watchers. Equal parts visual, immersive, and terrifying, the script grips you from the first page and never lets go,” previously said Richard Brener, President and Chief Creative Officer, New Line Cinema.

While we wait to find out what’s lurking in the Irish woods, we can expect to see Campbell next in the upcoming Bird Box spinoff, A ciegas.
