Just a couple of weeks ago, Luke Wilson was Meeting Evil in the form of Samuel L Jackson. Now he's set to meet it again, having accepted The Invitation, a thriller to be directed by Karyn Kusama (Jennifer's Body).
Wilson will be playing a character called Will, and the evil in question this time is Will's ex-wife. The horror! The pair have apparently been estranged for some time when Will accepts the titular invitation to a dinner party his ex is throwing. As the evening progresses, he comes to believe that "something insidious" has possessed his wife, and that her new friends have some kind of dastardly mischief in mind.
Alien replacement a la Invasion Of The Body Snatchers? Satanic cult, along the lines of Rosemary's Baby? Murder club, like The Last Supper? That would be telling. We do know, however, that Zachary Quinto, Topher Grace and Johnny Galecki are co-starring. This means it's a gathering where Leonard Hofstadter gets to dine with Spock and Venom. Sheldon Cooper would have a conniption.
The screenplay is by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, who, amongst other things (Clash Of The Titans, The Tuxedo) previously wrote Aeon Flux, which was also directed by Kusama. Production company XYZ meanwhile, were behind Kusama's Girlfight. Shooting starts in LA later this summer.
