Every Upcoming Dylan O’Brien Movie | Screen Rant

Dylan O’Brien has a full slate of projects ahead, appearing in four movies and being heavily rumored for a fifth. O’Brien rose to fame with the role of Stiles Stilinski on Teen Wolf, the MTV supernatural drama, putting his own spin on the sardonic best friend in the teen drama genre. From there, O’Brien continued to gain recognition for headlining The Maze Runner franchise and starring in the action thriller American Assassin.

After taking a step back from acting, other than a few one-off portrayals in television anthologies, O’Brien has come back to the limelight in a big way over the past year. His hot streak started with a recreation of Andrew Garfield’s climactic scene in The Social Network, which earned praise from Garfield himself, O’Brien turned heads with his lead performance in the post-apocalyptic dramedy Love and Monsters. He also starred in Flashback, a time-twisting thriller about a dissatisfied young man who begins to unravel after the disappearance of an old high school acquaintance. The actor has recently found time to spar with Larry David, as well, playing a version of himself in a self-deprecating Curb Your Enthusiasm cameo.

O’Brien’s involvement in Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well” short film, though, stood out most to longtime fans of the actor. Playing against type, to complement what many consider Swift’s best song, the former teen heartthrob starred opposite Sadie Sink as an unnamed boyfriend that was as quick to charm as he was to anger and gaslighting. For O’Brien, who has tended towards playing heroic protagonists, “All Too Well” represented a shift that he’ll continue with his next projects. Here’s everything you need to know about O’Brien’s next movies, including the story details, his co-stars, and directors.

The Outfit, which recently revealed its first trailer and a poster, stars Oscar winner Mark Rylance as Leonard. A tailor that used to craft suits on London’s world-famous Savile Row, Leonard ends up in Chicago after a personal tragedy. He finds himself operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town, making beautiful clothes for the only people around who can afford to buy them: a family of vicious gangsters.

Along with Rylance and O’Brien, The Outfit stars Zoey Deutch, Johnny Flynn, Simon Russell Beale, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and Alan Mehdizadeh. The film, which will be in theaters on February 25, marks the directorial debut of Graham Moore, who previously won an Academy Award for 2014’s The Imitation Game in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. In past statements, Moore has discussed how The Outfit marks the culmination of an idea the two writers have had for ten years.

O’Brien will also work alongside the rule-filled Zombieland: Double Tap's Zoey Deutch in Not Okay, which will star Deutch as a misguided young woman that’s desperate for friends and fame. To achieve that end, she fakes a trip to Paris with the goal of improving her social media presence. But, when a terrifying incident takes place in the real world and becomes part of her imaginary trip, the white lie snowballs into a moral quandary that provides her with all the attention she could ever want.

Described as a comedy satire, Not Okay will premiere on Hulu. The film will be directed by Quinn Shephard, who helmed The Miseducation of Cameron Post and the 2017 teen drama film Blame. The cast also includes Mia Isaac, Embeth Davidtz, Nadia Alexander, Tia Dionne Hodge, Negin Farsad, Karan Soni, and Dash Perry. O’Brien’s participation was revealed back in August, and the actor went viral after a photo was shared that revealed O’Brien sports blonde hair and fake tattoos for the movie. He’ll be playing Colin.

On September 24, 2021, on the fourth anniversary of its series finale, it was announced that a Teen Wolf revival movie would be released to the Paramount+ streaming service. Show creator and executive producer Jeff Davis is attached to write the Teen Wolf movie, which will see a terrifying evil emerge in the town of Beacon Hills. With wolves howling once again, Scott McCall has to rally against what could be the most powerful enemy ever faced.

Although this logline confirms that Tyler Posey will be back to play Scott, and suggests Stiles will be involved, O’Brien is not yet confirmed to appear. Still, when the movie was first announced, O’Brien’s former co-star Linden Ashby responded to a fan’s question on Twitter and seemed to confirm that there will be scenes featuring Stiles. If O’Brien does return, it opens up the chance that it will make up for Stiles’ absence in Teen Wolf season 6, and it could also add some details to the relationship between Lydia and Stiles.

O’Brien will star in The Vanishings at Caddo Lake, which will be produced by M. Night Shyamalan. The film will examine what happens when an 8-year-old girl mysteriously vanishes on the titular lake, leading to a series of past deaths and disappearances beginning to link together, forever altering a broken family’s history. Based on an original idea, the movie is written and directed by Celine Held & Logan George. The duo previously helmed the drama Topside, a drama about a mother and her five-year-old daughter that live in the abandoned subway tunnels of New York City. The Vanishings at Caddo Lake will also star Eliza Scanlen, Lauren Ambrose. Eric Lange, Sam Hennings, and Diana Hopper.

O’Brien is linked to star in Maximum Truth, a comedy that follows a follows political grifter by the name of Rick Klingman (The Mindy Project's Ike Barinholtz) as he teams up with his shady buddy Simon (O’Brien) to take down a rival congressional candidate. Scott MacArthur, Mia Serafino, and Ithamar Enriquez also star. Maximum Truth is directed by David Stassen, who co-wrote the script with Barinholtz. Though he’ll be making his directorial debut with the political comedy, Stassen previously wrote the Kevin Hart movie Central Intelligence and penned several episodes of The Mindy Project. Like other forthcoming Dylan O’Brien movies, Maximum Truth does not currently have a release date — but it was revealed by Liam Hoops, a script supervisor that worked on the movie, that filming took place in July.
