In the Tall Grass follows the story of a sister and brother duo who try to help a young boy crying on the back roads of Kansas but soon end up in a spooky-soup. Their paranoid journey all throughout has been described as terrifying and entertaining at the same time. Wilson and De Oliveira will feature as the siblings. This horror venture is up against Wilson's alley as he has already starred in Insidious and The Conjuring.

Initially, James Marsden was associated with In the Tall Grass but due to scheduling conflicts, he had to drop out.

Patrick Wilson is currently gearing up for Aquaman and Laysla's new projects include Needle In a Timestack, Code 8, and Picnic at Hanging Rock.
