Disney’s Searchlight Pictures are teaming up with Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite), once again for a new film, “And”, which will star Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley.
No details on what the plot of the film have yet been announced, nor has a release date been revealed.
The script has been developed by Element Pictures and Film4 and written by Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou. The film is produced by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element, along with Kasia Malipan and Yorgos Lanthimos.
Ollie Madden and Daniel Battsek are executive producing the project for Film4, which co-financed the project. “And” begins principal photography in New Orleans next month.
Searchlight presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield said in a statement to Deadline:
“Working with Yorgos continues to be a highlight for us at Searchlight, and this is yet another truly original project that sets his work apart. Working again with Emma, Willem, Jesse and Margaret as well as Element and Film4 is just the icing on the cake.”
Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe added:
“This is our fifth film with Yorgos and we are delighted to reunite once again with Searchlight and Film4 on this brilliant script by Yorgos and Efthmis. Yorgos has drawn an incredible cast and crew and we are dying to get started.”
“And” will be overseen by VP Production Richard Ruiz and Director Development & Production Peter Spencer, reporting to heads of production and development Katie Goodson-Thomas and DanTram Nguyen. Film4 director Ollie Madden, head of development Ben Coren, and production & development executive Alice Whittemore will oversee the project for Film4.
