EXCLUSIVE: In-demand Oscar nominee Florence Pugh (Dune: Part Two) is set to lead the psychological thriller The Pack, we can reveal.

Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies) is set direct and co-star in the film, which will be one of the hottest packages at next week’s American Film Market.

The film, which begins shooting in March, follows a group of documentarians who brave the remote wilderness of Alaska in an effort to save a nearly extinct species of wolves. When the crew is brought back together at a prestigious awards ceremony, tensions flare as a deadly truth threatens to unravel their work. The team lived through the harsh elements of the wild but will a secret they share survive the night?

Jennifer Fox (Michael Clayton) will produce the original script written by Rose Gilroy with 30West financing and executive producing. The project has echoes of Fox-produced thriller Nightcrawler.

Pugh’s credits include the upcoming features The Wonder, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two. She is coming off Don’t Worry DarlingMidsommar and Little Women.

Pugh is represented by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
