Dave Bautista will star in master-of-twists M. Night Shyamalan’s next project, Knock at the Cabin, Deadline has announced. Very little is known about this upcoming (obviously) film, except that Shyamalan will be writing and directing the feature over at Universal, continuing a long-standing partnership which oversaw the releases of Old, Glass, Split, and The Visit.
Bautista first rose to acting fame when he was cast as Drax in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, before going on to secure a small role in Blade Runner 2049; Denis Villeneuve would later rehire the professional wrestler-turned-actor for his sci-fi tentpole Dune. His biggest role to date however, has to be as mercenary and team leader Scott Ward in Zack Snyder’s zombie heist film Army of the Dead earlier this year.
Bautista is currently in production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which some suspect will be his final appearance as Drax – following the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. He is also confirmed as part of the sprawling ensemble cast for Rian Johnson’s Knives Out 2.
Knock at the Cabin will release February 3rd, 2023.
