Sebastian Stan and Lily James are teaming up once again for a new psychological horror.

The two actors, who previously starred opposite one another in Hulu’s limited series Pam & Tommy, have been cast in director Christian Tafdrup’s latest horror outing Let the Evil Go West (via Deadline).

The upcoming film is set to follow a railroad worker who "stumbles upon a fortune under deeply disturbing circumstances".

However, he's soon plagued by "horrifying visions and manifestations" that "drive him toward madness," leading his wife to believe that "an evil presence has attached itself to their family."

As well as starring in the film, James and Stan will executive produce along with Joshua Harris, Michael Rothstein and Samuel Hall.

Last year, James and Stan portrayed Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee in Hulu's Pam & Tommy, which explored the former real-life celebrity couple's whirlwind romance, as well as the aftermath of their private sex tape being stolen and sold online.

Reflecting on the divisive series earlier this year, James said that she hoped she did Anderson "justice" with her portrayal, despite reports that Anderson herself didn't want to be involved with the show.

"I still hope and pray I did her justice. But with anything, you just have to trust your instincts and know your intentions are good in shaping a story," she shared. "The more I watched Pamela, the more I tried to inhabit her and sensed how strong and fierce-spirited she is and the more I felt inspired by her."

However, Anderson later said she felt "violated" by the series, questioning: "How are they allowed to do that?"

"It’s not [Lily James'] fault; it’s a job. But whoever created it – well, it just feels like something else stolen," she added.
