According to reports, Mia Goth reprised her role as Maxine, now in 1985, aiming for fame in Hollywood after the events of ‘X.’ Lily Collins co-stars, Elizabeth Debicki directs, and Giancarlo Esposito plays Maxine’s agent. The story revolves around a Hollywood-set horror sequel titled ‘The Puritan 2,’ where Maxine becomes entangled in a series of murders connected to the Nightstalker. Detectives, played by Bobby Cannavale and Michelle Monaghan, work on the case, while Kevin Bacon appears as a corrupt private investigator.
