Kristen Stewart and Oscar Isaac will star in vampire thriller Flesh of the Gods, the next project from Mandy filmmaker (and STARBURST favourite) Panos Cosmatos.

Adam McKay is aboard to produce the feature with Betsy Koch, via their Hyberobject Industries production company. Isaac will also produce with Gena Konstantinakos via their banner Mad Gene Media.

Flesh of the Gods is written by Andrew Kevin Walker, best known as the screenwriting mind behind the 1990s classic, Se7ven. Based on a story by Walker and Cosmatos, this vampire thriller will reportedly be set in Los Angeles during the 1980s. The story follows a married couple, Raoul (Isaac) and Alex (Stewart), who descend each evening from their luxury skyscraper condo to head into the electric night-time realm of ’80s LA. When they cross paths with a mysterious, enigmatic woman and her hard-partying cabal, Raoul and Alex find themselves seduced into a glittering, surrealistic world of hedonism, thrills, and violence.

Stewart last starred in the erotic, surrealist crime thriller Love Lies Bleeding, directed by Rose Glass, which was released last month by A24. Isaac last appeared on screen as the titular lead in Marvel’s Moon Knight series. Cosmatos is also working on a film with A24 titled Nekrokosm. Reports state that the producers hope to begin filming on Flesh of the Gods towards the end of the year.
