March 17, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Alicia Vikander is getting her monster slayer on. Deadline reports that the Ex Machina star is in talks to star in Ben Wheatley’s Freakshift. The film will begin filming in August after Vikander completes her filming the Tomb Raider reboot, where she is starring as Lara Croft.

Freakshift is an action-thriller set in a world where monsters rise from the ground and terrorize citizens when night falls. The Freakshift is a band of government-organized misfits and lawbreakers who hunt and kill the creatures for civic duty, sport and money.

Wheatley (High-Rise) wrote the script alongside Amy Jump and will direct.
