Stranger Things’ Joe Keery has lined-up his next film project, alongside Pam and Tommy’s Lily James.
Deadline reports that Keery will join James and Willem Dafoe in the indie drama Finalmente L’alba (Finally Dawn) which will also star Rachel Sennott and Rebecca Antonac. Italian director Saverio Costanzo is helming the project.
Plot details for the film are currently being kept under wraps but production is set to start sometime this month in Italy.
Earlier this month Keery was announced as joining the cast of the fifth season of anthology series Fargo as Gator Tillman, alongside Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Ted Lasso’s Juno Temple, as well as New Girl’s Lamorne Morris and Never Have I Ever’s Richa Moorjani.
Before his appearance there though, he will next be seen onscreen in heist movie Marmalade.
Keery recently reprised the role of Steve Harrington in the second instalment of Stranger Things’s fourth season. He’ll be back in the role for the show’s fifth and final season, which the series’ creators recently confirmed will have a shorter runtime than its predecessor.
Matt Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter: “I don’t think the runtimes will be as extreme in season 5. We’re trying to return to the simplicity of the structure in season 1, with bigger scale and scope.
“The runtimes being as long as they were was something of a surprise to us. Ross and I have been trying to analyse how they ended up that long because the scripts aren’t even that long. We’ve realised that our writing style has changed a little bit in terms of how we space out description. I think that added to some length,” he continued. “Also, we had an additional plot with Hopper in Russia. It’s a pretty dense season. We weren’t sure they were that long, really, until we got into edit.”
Stranger Things seasons 1-4 are now streaming worldwide on Netflix.
