nullLance Reddick is set to join the cast of the psychological thriller, The Guest, which also boasts Brendan Meyer, Dan Stevens and Maika Monroe as cast members.

The Wrap describes the project as the story of an ex-Marine who returns from a tour of duty and is taken in by a fallen comrade’s family, who he proceeds to terrorize.

Dan Stevens plays the ex-marine in a project from the team behind Lionsgate’s upcoming horror movie You’re Next (director Adam Wingard, writer Simon Barrett and producers Keith Calder and Jessica Wu of Snoot Entertainment). 

Reddick will play a government agent aware of the ex-marine’s medical history who sets out to bring an end to his violent rampage against the family he terrorizes.

Production is set to begin this summer in New Mexico.

The busy Reddick most recently also joined the cast for the comedy Search Party –  a film that centers on two men who travel to Mexico to save their stranded friend and reunite him with his girlfriend.

Last year, launched his own production company (Christai Films) to package high-concept projects for himself, and was last seen in the thriller White House Down this summer, and opposite Viola Davis in the drama Won’t Back Down last fall, and will next be seen in Spike Lee’s Oldboy.
