Giancarlo Esposito, an award-winning actor, has unquestionably become one of the most famous faces on television since his flawless performance on AMC’s Breaking Bad, which has since given him a ton of possibilities to expand his extraordinary acting talent.
He has demonstrated his versatility by creating engaging cartel dramas for television and computer games, and he now has a “monstrous” new project on the horizon. According to a Deadline rumour, Esposito has been hired to play a “secret monster movie” in the upcoming movie from Universal and Radio Silence.
Why Giancarlo Esposito is popular in the film industry
Giancarlo Esposito is naturally best known for his iconic performance as the chicken-slinging cartel titan Gus Fring in AMC’s groundbreaking drama series Breaking Bad, which is now regarded as the masterclass in writing and directing and one of the most influential pieces of television. He reprised the part in the spin-off prequel Better Call Saul, which was also the brainchild of Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, to acclaim from fans.
He can currently be seen in the Netflix heist thriller Kaleidoscope, the immensely popular and running superhero series The Boys, and as Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian on Disney+. Along with Francis Ford Coppola’s career project Megalopolis, he will also be providing his voice for the Russo Brothers’ high-profile Netflix feature The Electric State.
What the Giancarlo Esposito starrer “Monster” is about?
Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Oplin and Tyler Gillett will collaborate to co-direct this new horror movie. A few of the film’s producers are Tripp Vinson, William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, James Vanderbilt, and Chad Villella, who most recently collaborated with Oplin on the two most current and wildly successful Scream movies. Stephen Shields wrote the original draft, and Guy Busick revised it. Melissa Barrera, Alisha Weir, Dan Stevens, Kevin Durand, Kathryn Newton, Angus Cloud, Will Catlett, and now Giancarlo Esposito have already been cast in the movie. Without even a fleeting clue of the premise, the plot’s specifics are now kept completely under wraps. But with a fully developed cast and production team, further developments are certain to occur throughout the year.
For us, the fact that we’re creating a Universal Monster movie is wild since it’s a Universal Monster movie,” Bettinelli-Olpin told ComicBook.com. “As the creators of Scream 5 and 6, we are huge admirers of unique, stand-alone films. We ’80s and ’90s kids miss that. Of course, studio movies are where the world is at the moment, and that’s okay because there are other methods to accomplish it. And even if it sounds strange, I believe that’s how we approached both Scream 5 and Scream 6 as well as this one. Let’s make this original film; it will stand alone and undoubtedly feature a monster.
