Singer and actress Janelle Monáe is set to star in a haunting new thriller that we can’t wait to see in theaters.

From the producers of Get Out and Us, Antebellum sees Monáe as a successful author stuck in a terrifying mind-bending nightmare, forced to figure out what’s going on before it’s too late.

The film also includes Dear White People‘s Marque Richardson, Kiersey Clemons and Gabourey Sidibe.

Monáe has been making major moves in front of the camera recently. She recently appeared alongside Cynthia Erivo in Harriet, in theaters now, and next to Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux in Disney’s re-imagined Lady and the Tramp.
