Allison Williams returning to horror with “The Perfection”


Allison Williams is making a return to the horror genre.

It has been confirmed by EW that the Get Out star will helm the upcoming film The Perfection written and directed by Richard Shepard. Get Out was Williams’ first role in theatrical release and grossed a massive $175.5 million, on a modest $4.5 million budget.

The two, who worked together before on HBO’s Girls, will begin production in Shanghai and Vancouver early next year. The movie follows a pair of cello prodigies bound by a sinister obsession that drives the pursuit of perfection.

“It’s truly exciting to be reunited with Allison,” Shepard told Deadline Hollywood. “Our time together during the six seasons of Girls was amazing. I loved watching her grow as an actress, and a person and I was thinking of her the entire time we were writing this movie. I can’t wait to bring a different side of Allison to the screen.”
