We love an all-star movie cast, where we recognise not one, two or three of the actors – but almost everyone on set. It’s an old Hollywood trick we’ve seen in countless films over the years, from 2010’s Valentine’s Day (starring everyone from Taylor Swift to Julia Roberts) to 2018’s Ocean’s Eight (Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway etc), and let’s just say we are not mad about it.
There’s something about an all-star cast that makes everything so much more exciting and while Netflix’s latest movie announcement doesn’t exactly include an Oscar winning line-up, it does feature some of our favourite new-gen names from the likes of Game of Thrones, 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale.
What is Strangers on Netflix?
The streaming service has revealed the cast of ‘Strangers’, an upcoming dark comedy co-written and directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who made her filmmaking debut with Netflix’s 2019 romcom, Someone Great.
Described as a “Hitchcock-ian dark comedy”, Strangers is all about a group of teenage girls. It focuses on two protagonists, Drea, the alpha ‘it-girl’ and Eleanor, the introverted ‘alt-girl’. When the two form a friendship, they team up to take down each other’s bullies.
Who will be in it?
Just some of our favourite young acting talent! The film will star Sophie Turner, Austin Abrams (from Paper Towns, Dash & Lily and most recently, Chemical Hearts), Riverdale’s Camila Mendes and 13 Reasons Why star, Alisha Boe. What a line-up!
So far, not much else has been revealed about the film. But we do know that the film will also star Talia Ryder, Paris Berelc, Jonathan Daviss, Maia Reficco and Ava Capri, as well as Maya Hawke and Rish Shah.
Expressing her excitement for the forthcoming film, Alisha Boe shared the announcement on Instagram, with the caption: “Look at all these beautiful people!! V grateful to be working with everyone in this cast and to be led by the one n only revenge mommy @jennkaytin ❤️✨”
Similarly, Robinson reposted the news on her Instagram stories, writing “revenge mommy loves all of her children.” Safe to say they’re all bonding over the film, already!
When will Strangers be out on Netflix?
While Strangers is still in pre-production stages, we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for more info on this. We’ll keep you posted.
