Pete Davidson is starring in James DeMonaco’s horror flick “The Home” for Miramax.

Per Deadline, the “Saturday Night Live” regular “will play Max, a troubled man who starts working at a retirement home and realizes its residents and caretakers harbor sinister secrets. As he investigates the building and its forbidden fourth floor, he starts to uncover connections to his own past and upbringing as a foster child.”

Miramax’s Bill Block and Sebastian K. Lemercier will produce along with DeMonaco and Adam Canto serving as writers for the film.

“We’re excited to be backing DeMonaco’s brilliant vision,” said producer Bill Block. “James’ The Purge horror franchise has grossed over $450 million at the worldwide box office. With his masterful storytelling abilities and Pete’s versatility as an actor, this film will put audiences everywhere on the edge of their seats.”

Production begins later this month.
