Kristen Stewart is once again transforming into a pale-faced bloodsucker—and no, it’s not for a Twilight sequel.

Variety reported today that Stewart and Oscar Isaac will star in Flesh of the Gods, a new vampire thriller from Panos Cosmatos, known for directing the 2018 horror action film Mandy, starring Nicolas Cage.

Producer Adam McKay explained the film’s premise in a statement: “This director, this writer, these incredible actors, vampires, choice ’80s punk, style, and attitude for miles … that’s the film we’re bringing you today. We think it’s wildly commercial and wildly artful. Our ambitions are to make a movie that ripples through popular culture, fashion, music, and film. Can you tell how excited I am?”

Ahead, we break down everything we know so far about Flesh of the Gods.

What is Flesh of the Gods about?

The movie will explore the lives of a vampire couple living in Los Angeles during the 1980s. Screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en) developed the script, working from a concept he and Cosmatos came up with.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the story follows a married couple, Raoul (Isaac) and Alex (Stewart), who descend each evening from their luxury skyscraper condo and head into an electric nighttime realm of ’80s L.A. When they cross paths with a mysterious and enigmatic woman and her hard-partying cabal, Raoul and Alex are seduced into a glamorous, surrealistic world of hedonism, thrills, and violence.”

“Like Los Angeles itself, Flesh of the Gods inhabits the liminal realm between fantasy and nightmare,” Cosmatos said in a statement. “Both propulsive and hypnotic, Flesh will take you on a hot-rod joyride deep into the glittering heart of hell.”

Who’s in it?

As of this writing, the only cast members announced are Stewart and Isaac.

When will the movie be released?

Flesh of the Gods doesn’t have a release date yet. Producers have told news outlets they hope to begin shooting this year.
