Natalia Dyer is coming to a screen near you – except this time, it won’t be in the Upside Down.
Per Variety, the Stranger Things star is set to appear in a leading role in the upcoming horror thriller All Fun and Games alongside Sex Education and Ender's Game actor Asa Butterfield. The movie, which is set to begin principal photography in late March, is about a group of siblings who find themselves in a game with a demonic twist.
While we don’t know much more about the plot, we do know that the movie will be produced by Anthony and Joe Russo’s AGBO production company. The Russo brothers are most well-known for their extensive work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, directing Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), among others. Producing alongside AGBO will be Anton, whose production credits include the psychological horror film The Night Before (2021) as well as the 2018 disaster thriller Greenland.
Co-directing in both of their debuts behind the camera will be Ari Costa, who worked alongside the Russo brothers on Endgame, and Eren Celeboglu, who has worked on The Internet Kills (2020) and the series Scrubs.
“Ari and Eren are the epitome of next-generation filmmakers. We’ve had the privilege of watching Ari grow in all facets of filmmaking through our work together over the years and, most recently, at AGBO. We are so proud to support him and Eren in their feature directorial debuts,” Anthony and Joe Russo said in a statement.
Dyer is known for her role of Nancy Wheeler on Netflix’s Stranger Things, which is slated to return for its fourth season later this year. This will be her first starring role in a movie since Karen Maine’s 2019 indie dramedy Yes, God, Yes. Butterfield is also no stranger to headlining movies, having appeared as the title characters in both Hugo (2011) and Ender’s Game (2013), as well as starring as Otis Milburn in the Netflix hit series Sex Education.
All Fun and Games is set to be presented to buyers at the virtual European Film Market in Berlin in February. If the cast and crew are any indication, we don’t think it’ll have a problem getting sold.
