What if a baby from another world, despite the best efforts of his adopted parents, turned out to be a little twisted? This is the premise of BrightBurn, a horror film produced by James Gunn and written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn. Frequent James Gunn collaborator David Yarovesky (The Hive) will direct the film which stars Elizabeth Banks, Jackson A. Dunn, David Denman, Gregory Allen Williams, Matt Jones, Meredith Hagner, and Steve Agee.
The former director of Guardians of the Galaxy, Gunn actually started his career in the horror genre with 2006’s Slither. He also explored odd super heroes in 2010’s Super, so Gunn is no stranger to either genre, and his role as producer is sure to rub off on his brother (Brian) and cousin (Mark), as well as Yarovesky.
BrightBurn will be released on Memorial Day, May 24, 2019.
