"Aster is directing Eddington from his own script that centers on a small-town New Mexico sheriff with lofty aspirations," shared The Hollywood Reporter.

Production on the film is slated to kick off this week, with Darius Khondji as the cinematographer and Aster and Lars Knudsen producing through their company Square Peg.

Eddington will be A24 and Square Peg's sixth collaboration. While Eddington is confirmed to be a Western-style film, no other plot details about the project have been revealed. The film films Phoenix fresh off Beau is Afraid with Square Peg.
