Child star Evan Alex is getting a head start in the field of off-camera work. The 11-year-old actor, best known for playing Jason Wilson/Pluto in Jordan Peele‘s horror flick Us, confirmed the news in a recent interview, “I’m working on my new project.” He continued, “I’ve talked to Jordan [Peele] about it. I’ve talked to him about the horror and about how I want this to be a little like Game of Thrones.”

Further information about his film remain under wraps, but Alex’s credentials in the world of film are already impressive. On top of starring alongside Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke in Us, he also joined Jim Carrey for the TV show Kidding and has just finished worked in forthcoming short films like Black Boy Joy and Eight.

In other entertainment news, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis and Matthew McConaughey are joining Robert Pattinson for the upcoming Batman film.
