Emma Stone to Reunite with ‘Poor Things’ Director Yorgos Lanthimos for New Film ‘Bugonia’

Emma Stone is set to collaborate once again with Yorgos Lanthimos, the director of ‘Poor Things,’ on their upcoming film ‘Bugonia.’ The duo is currently in Cannes for the premiere of their latest project, ‘Kinds of Kindness,’ where they announced their next venture together.

Following ‘The Favourite,’ ‘Bleat,’ ‘Poor Things’ and ‘Kinds of Kindness,’ ‘Bugonia’ is Stone and Lanthimos’ fifth joint project. In addition, Jesse Plemons, who co-stars with Stone in ‘Kinds of Kindness,’ which opens in the UK on 28th June, will be in the movie.

The new film ‘Bugonia’ is an adaptation of the 2003 South Korean sci-fi film ‘Save The Green Planet!’ and centres on a group of conspiracy theorists who kidnap a CEO they believe is plotting to destroy the Earth.

Earlier this year, Stone earned her second Oscar for her role in ‘Poor Things,’ adding to her previous win for ‘La La Land’ in 2017. In ‘Poor Things,’ Stone portrays Bella Baxter, a dead woman resurrected by a mad scientist in Victorian London. The film’s unique premise sparked discussions about its themes, with some critics labelling it as sexist and exploitative. Stone defended the film, noting, “ Some view it as a sweet romantic comedy, while others find it unsettling, and that’s perfectly fine.”

‘Bugonia’ promises to continue the fruitful collaboration between Stone and Lanthimos, a partnership that has already yielded notable cinematic achievements. With their latest project, ‘Kinds of Kindness,’ set for a UK release on June 28, audiences eagerly anticipate how the duo will bring the intriguing plot of ‘Bugonia’ to life.

Stone and Lanthimos have proven to be a dynamic duo in the film industry, consistently delivering unique and compelling narratives. Their reunion on ‘Bugonia’ is highly anticipated, especially following the success of ‘Poor Things’ and the buzz surrounding ‘Kinds of Kindness.’
