Wan–with a horror background that includes Saw (2004), Insidious (2010) and The Conjuring (2013), not to mention the superhero blockbuster Aquaman (2018)–directed Malignant from a screenplay by Akela Cooper (that was based on a story Wan dreamed up with Cooper and Ingrid Bisu).
Wan said he is “super-excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller.” The filmmaker called the movie “an original idea with old-school, practical effects and no giant blue-screen sets.”
Malignant–starring Annabelle Wallis, Maddie Hasson, George Young, Jake Abel, Michole Briana White, Jacqueline McKenzie, Ingrid Bisu and McKenna Grace–follows Madison (Wallis), a woman who is “paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders. Her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are, in fact, terrifying realities.”
Wallis said the new film will be “something very special. I think it’s genre-bending, brave and original. I think it’s really going to be something that audiences are wowed by.” The actor praised Wan, calling him “a wonderful collaborator. He’s so good at what he does.”
