Companion, the forthcoming sci-fi thriller with The Boys star Jack Quaid, has rounded out its cast.
The directorial debut of writer Drew Hancock, the film hails from the same team as 2022’s critically-acclaimed horror film Barbarian.
Quaid will be joined by Megan Suri and out LGBTQ+ actors Lukas Gage and Harvey Guillén.
Gage is best known for Euphoria, The White Lotus and You, with upcoming roles in the Brian Epstein biopic Midas Man and Prime Video’s action remake of Roadhouse.
As vampire hunter slash familiar Guillermo de la Cruz on What We Do In The Shadows, Guillén has received widespread praise and a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
FX’s lauded vampire mockumentary series, which returns for a fifth season on 13 July, has earned 17 Primetime Emmy Award nominations – including two for Outstanding Comedy Series. Additionally, the series won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series for its progressive LGBTQ+ representation.
Guillén, who recently hosted the 2023 GLAAD Media Awards, is set to make his blockbuster debut in DC’s Blue Beetle.
Suri currently stars as Aneesa in Netflix’s comedy-drama Never Have I Ever, which launches its fourth and final season on 8 June. After appearing in a supporting capacity in the screenlife thriller film Missing, Suri will lead her first film later this year – the supernatural horror It Lives Inside.
Besides the cast and crew, details are currently scarce on Companion, although it has been described as a “self-contained thriller”.
Producers include BoulderLight’s Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz, Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Zach Cregger. The latter directed Barbarian, which became last year’s breakout horror film and grossed over $45 million at the worldwide box office on a budget of $4 million.
