Lily James and Sebastian Stan Reunite for Psychological Horror Film

Fresh off their acclaimed performances in Hulu's "Pam & Tommy," Lily James and Sebastian Stan are set to share the screen once again in the upcoming psychological thriller "Let the Evil Go West." Directed by Christian Tafdrup, known for his work in the horror genre with films like "Speak No Evil," the movie promises a gripping descent into the darkness of the human mind.

"Let the Evil Go West" follows the story of a railroad worker who makes a disturbing discovery of a fortune under unsettling circumstances. As he is plagued by terrifying visions and manifestations, his sanity begins to unravel, drawing his wife into the fear that an evil force has struck their family. James and Stan will not only star in the film but also serve as executive producers alongside Joshua Harris, Michael Rothstein, and Samuel Hall.

The casting news has generated buzz among fans eager to see James and Stan tackle a completely different genre from their previous collaboration. In "Pam & Tommy," the duo portrayed Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee in a dramatized retelling of the celebrity couple's whirlwind romance and the infamous theft of their private sex tape. James reflected on the experience, saying, "I still hope and pray I did her justice. But with anything, you just have to trust your instincts and know your intentions are good in shaping a story."

While "Pam & Tommy" garnered critical acclaim, it also faced controversy, with Anderson herself expressing her dissatisfaction with the series. Anderson questioned, "How are they allowed to do that?" "It's not [Lily James'] fault; it's a job. But whoever created it – well, it just feels like something else stolen."

Despite the mixed reception to their previous project, anticipation is high for James and Stan's reunion in "Let the Evil Go West." With Tafdrup's skilled direction and the film's unsettling premise, the psychological horror is poised to showcase the actors' versatility and deliver a spine-chilling cinematic experience. As the project moves forward, more details about the plot, additional cast members, and a release date are expected to be announced.
