Nekrokosm is being written by Maegan Houang (Counterpart), based on a the story by Houang and Cosmastos. It will be set “deep within a strange galaxy, where two lovers are torn apart as they try to survive a malevolent invasion in this phantasmagorical fantasy nightmare,” reads the synopsis.

The film will be produced and financed by A24, with XYZ Films’ Nate Bolotin also set as a producer. This marks Cosmastos’ third collaboration with XYZ Films, since the company distributed his first two films including 2010’s Beyond the Black Rainbow and the hit Nicolas Cage-led horror.
