Described as a psychological horror film, Him centers around a legendary yet aging quarterback who is tasked with training a promising young athlete at his isolated compound. Hilariously funny comedian and actor Marlon Wayans stars as the celebrated quarterback, while Tyriq Withers plays as the rising athlete. You might recognize Wayans from his starring role on the comedy sitcom The Wayans Bros.. He also had roles in the movies Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, White Chicks, Little Man, A Haunted House, Sextuplets, The Curse of Bridge Hollow and Air.

Withers is known for his role as Tim in the drama series Tell Me Lies and Bobby in the sports drama series The Game. He also played the role of Rock in the comedy film Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

Joining Wayans and Withers in the cast are Julia Fox (Uncut Gems), Tim Heidecker (Us), Jim Jefferies (Legit), hip-hop artist Guapdad 4000, and Grammy nominee Tierra Whack. Their roles are undisclosed at the moment. The only other piece of information known about this movie is the theatrical release date, which Universal Pictures set for Sept. 19, 2025. Since the release date is far off from now, we're not expecting a trailer to drop anytime soon. However, we'll definitely make sure to share it once it's released. But for now, that's all we know about Him.
