Christopher Murphy wrote the screenplay for the movie, which is a battle-royal following a wedding.

“Ready or Not” opens in theaters against Gerard Butler’s “Angel has Fallen” and the action comedy “My Spy” with Dave Bautista. That’s the same weekend that the drama “Overcomer,” from director Alex Kendrick, hits theaters. It will be interesting to see if “Ready or Not” is the new breakout horror hit of the summer, but it already some tough competition.
The other thrillers opening in August include “Luce” with Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, and Tim Roth, and “Them That Follow” with Olivia Colman, Walton Goggins, Jim Gaffigan, and Thomas Mann. Towards the middle of the month Lionsgate is releasing “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” followed by the sequel “47 Meters Down: Uncaged.”
Samara Weaving is set to star as Thea Preston in “Bill & Ted Face the Music” in 2020, and she is also starring in “Guns Akimbo” with Daniel Radcliffe. Recently, Weaving starred in “The Babysitter” as Bee, and as Penelope in the award-winning drama “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
As for “Ready or Not,” thriller fans can set a reminder to catch the movie on August 23rd.
