Emma Stone And Yorgos Lanthimos Have Already Completed A “Much Simpler” New Movie In Secret

There are some great filmmaker/actor duos out there that are well established and have movies coming out this fall. Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are together again for Killers of the Flower Moon, while Todd Haynes and Julianne Moore have reunited for May December. But we can’t forget Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone who are following up their acclaimed film The Favourite with Oscar hopeful, Poor Things. While we know they’ll team up again for And, it turns out they’ve already shot another film in secret.

In a Cineuropa interview with Lanthimos it was revealed that he and Stone have already completed an entirely new movie. What’s it about? We don’t know, but Lanthimos says it’s  “much simpler and very different in comparison to ‘Poor Things’ because that story needed that particular style.”

On top of that, Lanthimos will be working again with Poor Things and The Favourite cinematographer Robbie Ryan.

If this new movie is already done, then we should probably look for it to arrive soon after Poor Things drops on December 8th. Might as well strike while the iron is hot, right?
