James McAvoy is evil personified in the new Speak No Evil poster

Universal Pictures has shared a new poster of James McAvoy from their upcoming film Speak No Evil. The remake of a 2022 Danish film, whose title also means Speak No Evil, stars McAvoy as a doctor (or at least he says he is one). James Watkins not only adapted Speak No Evil from the Danish film of the same name for the screen but also directed it. Mads Tafdrup and Christian Tafdrup wrote the screenplay for the film. The trailer, released earlier, shows a couple and their daughter coming to the vacation house of Paddy (McAvoy), Ciara (Aisling Franciosi), and their son Ant (Daniel Hough) in a seemingly idyllic countryside. The two families spend their time idyling away in and around the house in the initial parts of the trailer, but it soon shows Paddy unleashing the beast within him. The trailer leaves us with enough intrigue about Paddy's real identity, making us wonder whether he is even human.

Scoot McNairy and Mackenzie Davis play Ben and Louise Dalton, the couple who visit Paddy's vacation house with their daughter Agnes (Alix West Lefler). Jason Blum and Paul Ritchie are producing the film. Christian Tafdrup, Jacob Jarek, and Blumhouse's Beatriz Sequeira are serving as its executive producers.

The film will release on September 13 in theatres worldwide.
