Shortly after news of Keri Russell reportedly joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX, the actress is now in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro’s supernatural thriller film, Antlers at Fox Searchlight, according to THR.

If Russell is cast, she would take on the role of a teacher who finds interest in a mysterious and withdrawn student – a boy who ends up hiding a deadly secret that is the answer to their town’s survival.

The project is being produced by del Toro along with David Goyer and Miles Dale, who produced del Toro’s Oscar-winning film, The Shape of Water. Scott Cooper, known for Black Mass and Crazy Heart will be directing, with the script written by Nick Antosca and Henry Chaisson.

Russell recently finished her finale of the FX series The Americans, which she starred in for six seasons and earned two Emmy nominations.
