Though many are certainly looking forward to the big-budget studio fare on the docket this year like Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel, a significantly smaller film also has a great deal of anticipation.  The horror film You’re Next first premiered at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival where it picked up considerable acclaim, earning high praise from our own Matt Goldberg (read his review here).  Lionsgate has finally set the film for release this August, and now the team behind the horror pic is reuniting for the action thriller The Guest.

Variety reports that director Adam Wingard, screenwriter Simon Barrett, and producers Keith Calder and Jessica Wu are collaborating once again for the thriller.  The pic “tells the story of a soldier taken in to the home of the family of a fallen comrade, who becomes a threat to those around him when they discover dangerous secrets in his past.”  Production will begin this May.  Wingard and Barrett are also working on an adaptation of Dead Spy Running for Warner Bros, but it appears that The Guest is their next project.
