“DOWNTON” star to be “THE GUEST” for Wingard & Barrett


Director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett, the team behind this summer’s fantastic YOU’RE NEXT and the festival hit A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE, have begun casting their latest, the tale of a disturbed ex-Marine THE GUEST. 

The Wrap reports DOWNTON ABBEY’s Dan Stevens and Maika Monroe will star in the film, expected to begin shooting this summer. Stevens plays the aforementioned Marine who returns home scarred, setting his sights on terrorizing a military family whose eldest son has died. Monroe meanwhile, must protect the unit.
