Produced by A24, IAC, and Scott Rudin, the film version will star Beanie Feldstein (Hello, Dolly!, Lady Bird), Emmy winner and Broadway alum Amy Schumer (Meteor Shower), and Jayne Houdyshell, reprising her Tony-winning role from The Humans on Broadway.
Richard Jenkins and Steven Yeun (Sorry to Bother You, Okja) will also star in the Karam-helmed film. The screenplay will be adapted by the playwright.
Set inside a pre-war duplex in downtown Manhattan, The Humans follows the course of an evening in which the Blake family gathers to celebrate Thanksgiving. As darkness falls outside the crumbling building, mysterious things start to go bump in the night and family tensions reach a boiling point.
The play debuted at Roundabout Theatre Company Off-Broadway in 2015 before transferring to Broadway's Helen Hayes Theatre (produced by Rudin), followed by a run at a second Broadway house: the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Tony winner Joe Mantello directed a cast made up of Cassie Beck, Reed Birney, Houdyshell, Lauren Klein, Arian Moayed, and Sarah Steele.
