A first look at Julia Garner's upcoming horror movie Apartment 7A has been unveiled ahead of its streaming release later this year.

Billed as a prequel to the 1968 classic Rosemary's Baby, the movie is set in New York City during 1965 and sees Garner star as a struggling young dancer who dies in the apartment before Rosemary moves in.

According to the film's synopsis, Garner's character finds herself "drawn in by dark forces" when a well-connected couple offer her a shot at fame after she suffers from a devastating injury.

A first look image for the film – which can be seen below – features an ominous still of a hallway and elevator in the apartment building where 7A is located.

Marli Siu (Everything I Know About Love), Andrew Buchan (All the Money in the World), Rosy McEwen (Blue Jean) and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Wonka) have also been cast in supporting roles.

Apartment 7A is being directed by Natalie Erika James (Relic) and produced by A Quiet Place's John Krasinski alongside Allyson Seeger, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller.

The film's script has been written by James, Christian White and Skylar James.

Speaking about the project in a statement, Jeff Grossman, Executive Vice President, Programming, Paramount+, said: "Apartment 7A is the perfect way to kick off the Halloween season.

"Director Natalie Erika James and the prodigious creative team have crafted a chilling and clever new entry into the genre."

Apartment 7A isn't the only horror film Garner will be working on in the next few months, with the actor also set to appear in Leigh Whannell's adaptation of Wolf Man and Weapons alongside Josh Brolin.

Apartment 7A will premiere this autumn on Paramount+ in the US, UK and Ireland. A wider release is yet to be confirmed.
