A24 To Produce Sci-Fi Epic ‘Nekrokosm’ From ‘Mandy’ Director Panos Cosmatos

Today, A24 announced that a new science fiction film is in development from Panos Cosmatos, director of Beyond The Black Rainbow and Mandy. Described as a “phantasmagorical fantasy nightmare”, Nekrokosm will be set within a strange galaxy and follows two lovers torn apart as they try to survive a malevolent invasion. A24 will produce alongside XYZ Films.

The film’s script will be handled by Maegan Houang (Counterpart, Jamojaya), a writer on FX’s Shogun and A24’s HBO release The Sympathizer. Nekrokosm’s story was developed by Huang and Cosmatos.

It will be Cosmatos’s third film after 2010’s Beyond The Black Rainbow and Mandy, the latter of which premiered at Sundance and Cannes in 2018 and became a sleeper hit for A24. Nekrokosm will reunite Cosmatos XYZ Films, who produced his previous films as well as films like Boiling Point and FlyingLotus’s sci-fi film Ash.
