The horror-thriller I Walk with the Dead was originally set to be director Nicolas Winding Refn's follow up to the critically acclaimed and fan favorite revenge odyssey Drive, starring Ryan Gosling. But he got sidetracked, and went onto make the cult oddity Only God Forgives instead, which reunited him with his leading man. Now, he confirms that I Walk with the Dead is back on track, and will be his next movie.

Not much is known about the plot of I Walk with the Dead. The thriller was originally set to reteam him with his Drive leading lady Carey Mulligan, and in the past, he has promised that the movie will contain a lot of sex. So expect something along the lines of a psychosexual thriller. It is not known at this time if Carey Mulligan is still attached to the project. She is not currently attached to any other upcoming films.
Playwright Polly Stenham has been brought into pen the screenplay. Its not known when shooting will begin, but expect to hear more soon as I Walk with the Dead quickly moves forward.
