A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night director’s cannibal love story The Bad Batch finds a star

Jason MomoaAna Lily Amirpour’s Iranian vampire film A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night was an awesome, striking debut and the writer-director has lined up a star for her cannibal follow-up The Bad Batch.

The Wrap reports that Jason Momoa (Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Game Of Thrones) is in negotiations for the film, which is being produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures and Vice.

It’s fair to say that the following plot synopsis has grabbed our attention.

“Described as a cross between The Road Warrior and Pretty in PinkThe Bad Batch is a post-apocalyptic tale set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals reside. The film is a love story about a cannibal (Momoa) and his food.”

Eagle eyed followers of Ellison’s Twitter account will have noticed Momoa with Amirpour in this Tweet from January.
