The partnership continues, which up to now has given excellent results, between Yorgos Lanthimos And Searchlight Pictures. The two parties have reached an agreement to produce the Greek director’s next film AND.
Deadline has also exclusively reported the names of the stellar cast involved in the project: Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe And Margaret Qualley.
Shooting on the film, with a screenplay written by Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou, will begin next month in New Orleans. This is the comment of Searchlight executives, David Greenbaum And Matthew Greenfield:
Working with Yorgos continues to be special to us and this is another original project. Working again with Emma, Willem, Jesse and Margaret, as well as Element and Film4 is just the icing on the cake.
Not surprisingly, the presence of Emma Stone, who has already worked with the director in The Favourite (for which he earned one of his three Oscar nominations) and in Poor Things. The latter had, until a few months ago, a release date scheduled for 2022 before being definitively moved to next year.
Even Poor Things will boast a cast very similar to that of ANDas together with Emma Stone it also includes Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley, as well as Mark Ruffalo.
