With Hereditary perhaps the most anticipated horror movie of the year following its well-received Sundance premiere (read Heather Wixson's 4.5-star review here), Ari Aster's follow-up film is one that a lot of viewers are already looking forward to, and it's now been reported that his next movie will be a horror project at A24.

Deadline reports that Aster's next movie will be an "untitled horror project" for A24 that is expected to start production at the end of the summer or beginning of the fall. With no shortage of critical acclaim for Hereditary ahead of its June 8th release, A24 is putting a lot of faith into Aster for his second feature film, as the untitled movie is reportedly going to be the largest production to date for the studio, with Lars Knudsen and B Reel on board to produce.

While the official synopsis and title have yet to be revealed, Deadline reports that Aster's next film will center on "a young woman who reluctantly joins her boyfriend on a summer trip where things quickly go awry."

We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on Aster's next movie as more details are revealed, and for those unfamiliar with Hereditary, we have the official trailer and synopsis below, and in case you missed it, read Heather's Sundance interview with Aster and Hereditary co-stars Alex Wolff and Milly Shapiro:

Synopsis: "When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell."
