The actors Lukas Gauge (You), Megan Suri (It Lives Inside), and Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) have signed contracts to co-star with Jack Quaid in the New Line sci-fi thriller Companion, which will be directed by Drew Hancock in his feature film debut from his own original screenplay and produced by the Barbarian team.
Vertigo’s Lee, Margules & Lifshitz of BoulderLight, and Cregger are all involved in the production of Companion. Andrew Childs of Vertigo and Tracy Rosenblum of BoulderLight will serve as executive producers.
The Companion plot is kept under wraps. Following a multi-studio bidding war for Weapons, the new horror film from Barbarian director Zach Cregger and producers Roy Lee of Vertigo, Raphael Margules & J.D. Lifshitz of BoulderLight, and Miri Yoon, Companion was acquired by New Line.
Why Lukas Gauge, Megan Suri, and Harvey Guillen are the best choices for Companion?
Guillén is best known for playing Guillermo de la Cruz, the human ‘familiar’ of a group of Staten Island vampires, on the popular comedy series What We Do in the Shadows, which premieres for its fifth season on July 13 and has already been renewed for a sixth. He will also soon appear in the August 18 release of the Warner Bros. DC movie Blue Beetle. In a time generally devoid of family entertainment, the actor most recently provided the voice of Perrito in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, the highly praised animated film that proved a box office success for Uni and DreamWorks.
Gauge is now playing opposite Penn Badgley in the fourth season of Netflix’s worldwide hit serial killer thriller, You. He recently wrapped production on Max’s Dead Boy Detectives and director Doug Liman’s Amazon/MGM Road House remake. The actor’s most recent projects also include Max’s Moonshot, the critically praised Neon film How to Blow Up a Pipeline, and the television shows The White Lotus, Euphoria, Angelyne, and Love, Victor. Additionally, Gauge will be seen in Fargo Season 5 and Brittany Snow’s Parachute, a feature film that premiered at SXSW.
If you watched Poker Face’s second episode, Suri also appeared as the goth girl who worked at the convenience shop where a tragic incident occurred. Suri’s biggest part to date is as Aneesa on Never Have I Ever.
