After “X” & “Pearl” comes “MaXXXine”! In addition to Mia Goth, Kevin Bacon, and “Emily in Paris” actress Lily Collins, “The Crown” star Elizabeth Debicki & “The Boys” villain Giancarlo Esposito will also be in front of the camera in the horror sequel.
In 2022, “X” by horror icon Ti West inspired genre fans around the world. In the slasher, a porn crew ends up on a remote farm in 1979, where they quickly become acquainted with a slightly eccentric retired couple. What they don’t know: the old people are guarding a dark secret…
But director Ti West also kept a secret, because the filmmaker was apparently convinced of the success of his disturbing horror contribution and secretly shot the prequel “Pearl” immediately afterward, which will be released in cinemas on June 1, 2023. Anyone who would like to recall the events of “X” for prehistory can currently buy the film on Amazon Prime Video:
But that’s not all, because with “MaXXXine” a third part should follow. In addition to Mia Goth, who has starred in all three films, other actors have now also become known who will be seen in the sequel.
Next to Hollywood icon Kevin Bacon who just got his own MCU entry paying homage to himself with The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, will also star in Emily in Paris LilyCollins act in the horror film.
This is the cast of “MaXXXine”
In addition to Bacon and Collins, several other well-known series and film actors are expanding the cast of the horror film, including “The Crown” star Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Monaghan (“Gone Baby Gone”), Bobby Cannavale (“Ant-Man” ) and The Mandalorian villain Giancarlo Esposito. They are supported by musicians Moses Sumney and Halsey, who are best known for their vocal talents but will be in front of the camera in “MaXXXine”. Filming is scheduled to start in April 2023.
Unlike the prequel “Pearl”, the third part “MaXXXine” will be a real sequel to “X” and continue the events of the survivors of the failed porn shoot. Maxine (Mia Goth) still hasn’t given up on being famous. Now she wants to conquer Los Angeles in the 80s.
