Andrew Garfield is in talks to star alongside Julia Roberts in Amazon MGM Studios’ upcoming movie "After the Hunt", which will be released in theaters next year.

Luca Guadagnino is directing the pic from a script by Nora Garrett.

Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer and Allan Mandelbaum are producing alongside Guadagnino via his Frenesy banner. Imagine Entertainment’s Karen Lunder will executive produce alongside Nora Garrett.

The pic is targeting a summer start-of-production.

"After the Hunt" is an intense dramatic thriller about a college professor who finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads when a star pupil levels an accusation against one of her colleagues, and a dark secret from her own past threatens to come to light.

The project has been a hot property since Imagine landed the script and began developing it at the top of the year with every A-list director and star chasing it.

Once Guadagnino and Roberts were attached, Amazon moved fast to land the pic, and given the star power already involved it’s no surprise that top talent like Garfield is now filling out the ensemble.

The Golden Globe and Tony Award-winning actor and Oscar-nominated star will next be seen in A24 and Studio Canal’s "We Live In Time" opposite Florence Pugh. 

Garfield was last seen in FX’s "Under the Banner of Heaven", which landed him his first Emmy nomination. 

Other credits include Lin-Manuel Miranda’s" Tick, Tick… Boom!", "Spider-Man: No Way Home", "The Eyes of Tammy Faye", "Hacksaw Ridge", "Mainstream", "Under the Silver Lake", "Breathe", "Silence", "99 Homes", and "The Social Network".

Garfield is also famous for portraying Spider-Man in Marc Webb’s "The Amazing Spider-Man", and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," which combined grossed over $1.5 billion at the box office.
