Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots, who co-starred together in the 2011 remake of ‘Fright Night’, have been announced as the lead actors in Jeremy Saulnier’s upcoming indie flick ‘Green Room’.

‘Green Room’ “centers on a punk band, headlined by Yelchin’s character, who witnesses a murder at one of their shows in a middle-of-nowhere venue. They find themselves locked in a green room and targeted for death by a gang of racist skinheads,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Poots is set to portray a skinhead who joins forces with the band after her friend is murdered. ‘Green Room’ will also star ‘Arrested Development’s’ Alia Shawkat, Callum Turner, Joe Cole, Macon Blair, and Mark Webber.

Yelchin will next be seen on the big screen in ‘Cymbeline’ alongside Ethan Hawke, Milla Jovovich, and Dakota Johnson. He will also reprise the role of Chekov in the upcoming ‘Star Trek 3’.

‘Green Room’ will begin filming later this month in Portland, Oregon.
