‘Barbarian’ Filmmaker Zach Cregger’s Next Film ‘Weapons’ Has Been Auctioned to New Line

This was exciting news yesterday to any fans of Barbarian. Last year’s surprise horror hit was a burst of creativity, leading to immediate anticipation for what’s next from filmmaker Zach Cregger. Well, not only do we know what his next horror movie is called, we know where it’s going to be calling home.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cregger’s next film Weapons sparked a huge bidding war over the script and the rights to make it. New Line has emerged victorious, not just landing the writer/director a huge payday, but a guaranteed theatrical release as well. What is Weapons about? Details are scarce, but the article describes it like this: “Plot details of Weapons are being kept holstered, but it is described as an interrelated, multistory horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Magnolia, the 1999 actor-crammed showcase from filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.” Barbarian was a favorite of Joey and Myles, as well as many of you, so this new one is immediately a horror project to anticipate.
