Now here's an interesting one, writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour, whose vampire feature A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night made waves last year, is setting up her next project and she has the support of Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures and she's lining up an interesting cast for what sounds like a fascinating feature. Described as a "cannibal love story", The Bad Batch as a post-apocalyptic tale set in a Texas wasteland where a community of cannibals reside. The shift from what you may expect from such a story is that this is a love story about a cannibal known as Miami Man (Jason Momoa) and his food. Joining Momoa in the picture are Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, Suki Waterhouse and Diego Luna with The Wrap reporting Waterhouse has landed the female lead, a character named Arlen. Luna will play a man named Jimmy. Reeves will play The Dream »
