Brie Larson Explores the Thriller Genre
Brie Larson, best known for her roles in sci-fi action epics such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is branching into the thriller genre. Our sources have confirmed that Larson will star in the upcoming thriller, The Crusader, directed by Ridley Scott, one of Hollywood’s busiest filmmakers. Sony and Apple are producing the film.
Plot Details of The Crusader
Despite Ridley Scott’s reputation for directing historical epics, The Crusader will not occur in the distant past. Instead, Larson will play a journalist investigating a corrupt religious organization whose identity is unknown. The organization does not hesitate to target Larson for an assassination to protect their secrets.
Ridley Scott’s Prolific Career
This collaboration between Brie Larson and Ridley Scott will be their first, which is surprising given Scott’s extensive and prolific career. At 85, the Blade Runner director shows no signs of slowing down. Even during the pandemic, he delivered The Last Duel and The House of Gucci in 2021, followed by upcoming films such as Napoleon and Gladiator 2. He also produces projects such as Alien: Romulus and the spinoff TV series Blade Runner 2099.
Brie Larson’s Upcoming Projects
After completing The Crusader, Larson will become a regular in the thriller genre. She is also reuniting with Samuel L. Jackson for the Netflix thriller The Forgotten and will work with the streamer on the psychological thriller The Mind’s Eye.
Before any of these projects, Larson will have premieres to celebrate, most notably her return to the role that made her a household name with November’s release of The Marvels. This sequel to Captain Marvel will feature Larson’s Carol Danvers teaming up with Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), the daughter of her late friend Maria (Lashana Lynch).
Shortly before or after The Marvels, Larson will star in Apple TV+’s Lessons in Chemistry, a series based on the Bonnie Garmus novel of the same name.
