This is one dangerous game.

The Blackening–a horror-comedy Lionsgate acquired after its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival–will hit the big screen next summer, according to a report on Deadline.

The film–directed by Tim Story (2005’s Fantastic Four) from a screenplay by Tracy Oliver and Dewayne Perkins–lands in theaters June 16, 2023.

The Blackening follows a group of Black friends who reunite during a weekend getaway “only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer,” according to the synopsis. Forced to play by his rules, the friends “soon realize this isn’t a game.”

Produced by Story, Oliver, Perkins, Marcei Brown, Jason Clark, E. Brian Dobbins and Sharla Sumpter Bridgett, the film stars Antoinette Robertson, Sinqua Walls, Grace Byers, Melvin Gregg, Jermaine Fowler, Yvonne Orji and Jay Pharoah.
