A new family dynasty is rising in the horror genre: the Bacons! Kyra Sedgwick recently revealed exciting plans for a collaborative horror film alongside her husband, Kevin Bacon, and their actress daughter, Sosie Bacon.

In a recent Variety interview, Emmy-winning actress Kyra Sedgwick spilled the beans about their upcoming family project. The couple plans to co-direct the horror film, with their daughter Sosie joining the cast.

While Kyra and Kevin have experience directing, securing a dual-director credit from the Director’s Guild of America (DGA) proved more challenging than anticipated. However, Sedgwick remains optimistic, hinting at a solution and acknowledging the potential influence of Kevin’s name recognition. Horror fans are eagerly awaiting further details.

Kevin Bacon boasts a long and impressive resume in the genre, including classics like Friday the 13th, Tremors, Hollow Man, and Stir of Echoes. He recently wrapped filming on Ti West’s upcoming MaXXXine alongside Mia Goth. While Kyra has dabbled less in horror, she did star in the 2012 film The Possession. In recent years, she’s transitioned into directing, a passion she enthusiastically describes in the interview.

Sosie Bacon‘s involvement adds another layer of excitement. Beyond her standout performance in Smile, she also appeared in the MTV series “Scream.” Sedgwick proudly proclaims Sosie to be the “best actor in the family,” solidifying the family’s dedication to entertaining.

While specific details remain under wraps, the prospect of a horror film co-directed by the Bacons featuring Sosie’s talent is enough to send shivers down the spines of horror enthusiasts. Keep your eyes peeled for further developments on this chilling family affair!
