Several months after the confirmation of MaXXXine, Pearl star Mia Goth has finally opened up about the upcoming third and final installment to Ti West’s X horror franchise.
Speaking with Variety, the English actress confirmed that she’s currently doing pre-production work for MaXXXine, teasing that the upcoming movie has “best script of the three by far,” and will also be the “biggest story” of the trilogy.
“It’s going be the best movie of the three,” Goth said. “We’re all so tight now. This is going to be our third movie we’re working on together and everyone’s coming back together, so it’s bringing the band all back together again. We just have a shorthand with each other. We know how everybody works and we’re all so excited. It’s the biggest story of the three with the highest stakes and Maxine has gone through so much at this point. So when we find her in this new world, she’s just a force to be reckoned with and she goes through some pretty wild adventures.”
MaXXXine will be written and directed by Ti West. It is produced by A24, Jacob Jaffke, and West, and executive produced by Goth. Additional producers include Kevin Turen and Harrison Kreiss. In addition to West returning to direct, Mia Goth will reprise her role as Maxine, the only survivor of the elderly Pearl’s rampage in the first film.
“The film follows Maxine, after the events of X, as the sole survivor who continues her journey towards fame setting out to make it as an actress in 1980’s Los Angeles,” reads the synopsis.
It is the third entry in the X trilogy, which also includes the prequel Pearl.
