Halsey has proven her talent on stage and on the big screen time and time again, and now, she has been tagged to join the cast of the forthcoming A24 film ‘MaXXXine.’ ‘MaXXXine’ will mark the third installment to A24’s Mia Goth-led X franchise, but a release date has not been announced for the eagerly-anticipated horror film.

With four full-length albums and a multitude of film work including 2023’s ‘Americana’ opposite Sydney Sweeney, 2021’s ‘Sing 2,’ and her album companion film ‘If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power,’ Halsey has demonstrated her on-screen presence and aptitude to hold her own alongside major Hollywood names.

The Ti West directed ‘MaXXXine’ will arrive following the release of its predecessors, 2022’s ‘X’ and ‘Pearl.’ Aside from Halsey and Goth, ‘MaXXXine’ will feature a star-studded cast including Elizabeth Debicki, Moses Sumney, Michelle Monaghan, Bobby Cannavale, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito, and Kevin Bacon.

The announcement was made via A24’s social media platforms, which included an 80s-style video trailer revealing the film’s cast. According to reports, ‘MaXXXine’ will be set chronologically after the bloody ending of ‘X’ and will see Maxine (Mia Goth) strive to become a successful actress in 1980s Los Angeles.

Earlier this year, Goth revealed to Variety, “[‘MaXXXine’ is] the best script of the three by far. It’s going be the best movie of the three. We’re all so tight now. This is going to be our third movie we’re working on together and everyone’s coming back together, so it’s bringing the band all back together again… It’s the biggest story of the three with the highest stakes and Maxine has gone through so much at this point. So when we find her in this new world, she’s just a force to be reckoned with and she goes through some pretty wild adventures.”

You can watch ‘X’ and ‘Pearl’ on Amazon Prime Video now.
