A24’s action thriller “Civil War,” directed by Alex Garland and starring Kirsten Dunst, is heading to Texas.

The movie, about a team of journalists who traverse a bitterly divided United States, will premiere at South by Southwest as a late addition to the festival. The screening will take place on March 14 at the Paramount Theater.

SXSW confirmed the news, with programmer Claudette Godfrey saying she “cannot imagine a better place” for “Civil War” to debut. This will be Garland’s return to SXSW following the North American premiere of his first film, 2015’s sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina.”

“Alex Garland’s ‘Civil War’ is a gorgeous, haunting and powerful piece of cinema unlike anything else you’ll find in a movie theater this year. It’s a wholly immersive experience that expertly blends large-scale spectacle with an intimate understanding of character and personal stakes brought to beautiful life by a stellar ensemble cast” said Godfrey, SXSW’s VP of film and TV. “When the credits rolled on ‘Civil War,’ we all looked at one another in a bit of shock, knowing full well Alex and A24 had delivered another masterpiece.”

Garland, the filmmaker of “Annihilation” and “Men,” wrote and directed the movie. A press release describes “Civil War” as an “adrenaline-fueled thrill ride through a near-future fractured America balanced on the razor’s edge.” Set in the near future, it unfolds amid a new Civil War between the U.S. government and the so-called successionist “Western Forces” led by California and Texas. (For that reason, it’ll be interesting to see how the movie is received in the capital of the Lone Star State, where SXSW is held.) Much blood is shed in the disturbingly violent trailer, which culminates with a missile blowing up the Lincoln Memorial in D.C.

“Civil War” cost $50 million, making it A24’s most expensive film to date. It will be released in theaters on April 12. The cast includes Nick Offerman as the president of the United States, Wagner Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Cailee Spaeny and Jesse Plemons.

SXSW takes place from March 8 to March 16. Netflix’s series “3 Body Problem,” from “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, will open the festival. Other notable premieres include the Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt action comedy “The Fall Guy,” Pamela Adlon’s directorial debut “Babes” and the Mark Wahlberg-produced documentary “MovieCrash,” about the downfall of subscription-based ticketing service MoviePass.

After teaming for Academy Award winner “Ex Machina” and the upcoming project “Men,” A24 has announced Alex Garland’s latest movie, “Civil War.”

Kirsten Dunst is set to star alongside Wagner Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Cailee Spaeny in the action film written and directed by Garland. Aside from the fact that the film is set in a near future America, plot details are being kept under wraps.

In 2016, Garland received an Academy Award nomination for best original screenplay for “Ex Machina,” which also won an Oscar for achievement in visual effects. Garland followed the critically acclaimed movie with 2018’s “Annihilation” and the FX series “Devs.” His upcoming projects include “Men,” starring Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear, which A24 will release later this year.

A24 will handle the global release of the film and produce alongside Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of DNA and Gregory Goodman. DNA previously teamed with Garland for “Ex Machina,” “Annihilation” and “Men.” Goodman’s past producing credits include “Three Kings,” “8 Mile,” “Captain Phillips” and “22 July.”

Dunst most recently earned a SAG award nomination for her critically acclaimed performance as Rose Gordon in Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.” Over the course of her career, Dunst has given notable performances in award-winning films including “Interview With the Vampire,” “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Hidden Figures,” “Marie Antoinette,” “Melancholia,” the “Spider-Man” franchise and “The Virgin Suicides,” among many others. In 2016, she received a Primetime Emmy nomination for her role as Peggy Blumquist in “Fargo”.

Moura starred as Pablo Escobar on “Narcos,” for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe, and will next be seen opposite Elisabeth Moss in “The Shining Girls” for Apple TV Plus. He also wrote, directed and produced “Marighella,” which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.

Earlier this year, Henderson starred in Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” and Halle Berry’s “Bruised” and he currently appears as a series regular on Garland’s “Devs” for FX. The actor’s prolific stage and screen resume includes “Lady Bird,” “Manchester by the Sea,” “The True Adventure of Wolfboy,” “Native Son,” “The Blacklist,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Run” and “Fences” (both the Paramount feature film directed by Denzel Washington and the 2010 Broadway revival of August Wilson’s play, for which he earned a Tony Award nomination). Henderson is also an OBIE Award and Lucille Lortel Award winner.

Spaeny most recently appeared in “Mare of Easttown,” with a list of credits including “On the Basis of Sex,” “Bad Times at the El Royale” and “How It Ends.” Spaeny will next be seen as Anna Eleanor Roosevelt in the upcoming series “The First Lady.”

Garland is represented by WME and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher.

Dunst is represented by UTA, Management 360, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman, LLP; Moura is represented by WME, Black Rabbit Media, and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole; Henderson is represented by Stewart Talent and EKG Management; and Spaeny is represented by WME, Sugar23 and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman.
