‘Foe’ – Apocalyptic Thriller Based on Iain Reid Novel Sets Theatrical Release

Expect a twisty, apocalyptic mindbender upcoming apocalyptic thriller Foe, based on best-selling author Iain Reid’s (I’m Thinking of Ending Things) novel. Today, Amazon Studios announced a Halloween season release for the adaptation.

Look for Foe to arrive in US theaters on October 6, 2023.

Saoirse Ronan, Paul Mescal, and Aaron Pierre star in the twisty apocalyptic marital thriller. The first look image above previews Ronan and Mescal as the central married couple.

The film is described as “a haunting exploration of marriage and identity set in an uncertain world. Hen and Junior farm a secluded piece of land that has been in Junior’s family for generations, but their quiet life is thrown into turmoil when an uninvited stranger (Pierre) shows up at their door with a startling proposal.”

Directed by Garth Davis, and co-written by Davis and Reid, “Foe’s mesmerizing imagery and persistent questions about the nature of humanity (and artificial humanity) bring the not-too-distant future to luminous life.”

The thriller is produced by Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Davis, Emile Sherman and Iain Canning. Executive producers include Dawn Olmstead, David Levine, Robert Walak, Samantha Lang and Reid.

Foe marks Reid’s second novel, originally published in 2018. It’s described as “haunting, philosophical puzzle of a novel, set in the near-future, Junior and Henrietta live a comfortable, solitary life on their farm, far from the city lights, but in close quarters with each other. One day, a stranger from the city arrives with alarming news: Junior has been randomly selected to travel far away from the farm…very far away. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Henrietta won’t have a chance to miss him, because she won’t be left alone—not even for a moment. Henrietta will have company. Familiar company.”

With Foe arriving in theaters on October 6, we won’t have to wait long to discover just how twisty this thriller will get.
