Julia Roberts has been cast to star in Bones and All director Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming feature for Amazon MGM Studios, a thriller set in the world of academia. Guadagnino will direct After the Hunt from a script by first-time screenwriter Nora Garrett, which centres on a college professor who faces a crossroads in confronting her own dark past when a standout student makes an accusation against one of her colleagues.

Additional cast members will be announced at a later date. Garrett will executive produce with Karen Lunder for Imagine Entertainment, with the company’s executives Brian Glazer and Allan Mandelbaum producing the film with Guadagnino on behalf of his company, Frenesy.

Julia Roberts was recently seen in romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise with George Clooney, and in last year’s post-apocalyptic thriller Leave the World Behind from Netflix, opposite Mahershala Ali and Ethan Hawke. Guadagnino is best known as the Academy Award-nominated director of Call Me by Your Name, but has made waves in the genre sphere with films like the Dakota Johnson-starring remake of Suspiria, as well as the cannibal romance Bones and All starring Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell. His other film for Amazon MGM, Challengers, releases later this month.
