‘After The Hunt’: Ayo Edibiri Joins Luca Guadagnino’s Next Film With Julia Roberts And Andrew Garfield

It’s a good time to be attached at the hip to director Luca Guadagnino. Following the critical and box office success of Challengers, the filmmaker has Queer coming up, and has already set a reunion with Josh O’Connor for Separate Rooms. But before that last film gets rolling, he’ll direct thriller After the Hunt, which already has Julia Roberts and Andrew Garfield attached, and now you can add The Bear‘s Ayo Edibiri.

Deadline confirms that Edibiri has joined Roberts and Garfield in After the Hunt. Penned by Nora Garrett,the film follows a college professor who finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads when a star pupil levels an accusation against one of her colleagues, threatening to expose a dark secret from her own past.

Roberts will play the college professor, so it seems as if Garfield is her colleague with Edibiri as the accuser?

Edibiri is everywhere lately, and she’s got a lot on her plate including season 3 of The Bear and a voice role as Envy in Pixar’s Inside Out 2. That’s just the start of it, like a possibly joining Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean reboot.

Amazon MGM hopes to have After the Hunt ready for next year, and it looks like a potential awards season contender already.
