While plot details and even the film’s title are shrouded in mystery, we previously reported that the film will co-star Daniel Kaluuya and now know the project has a release date of July 22, 2022. Jesse Plemons was offered a role, but he has to turn it down for Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.
