Greece’s leading film director Yorgos Lanthimos is preparing for his next feature film ‘Poor Things‘, starring Emma Stone.
The film is based on Alasdair Gray’s novel of the same name, described as a “hilarious political allegory and a thought-provoking duel between the desires of men and the independence of women, from one of Scotland’s most accomplished author.”
‘Poor Things’ is a Frankenstein-esque tale set in the Victorian-era, described as a story of “love, discovery and scientific daring,” focusing on a young woman named Belle Baxter (Stone) brought back to life by an eccentric but brilliant scientist.
Directed and produced by Lanthimos, the movie’s script is written by Tony McNamara.
Production is set to begin this year, and will likely hit the cinemas in 2022.
