Yorgos Lanthimos is working on a new film. Will this be another hit?

The film triumphs in cinemas and at award galas “Poor creatures”. Giorgos Lanthimos’ work is an incredible story about the evolution of Bella Baxter (Emma Stone), a young woman who is brought back to life by a brilliant and unconventional scientist, Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under his care, Bella is eager to learn everything again, but she also wants to experience life to the fullest.

The Oscars gala will take place on March 10. Then we will find out which of the 11 nominations for “Poor creatures” they will turn into a statuette. Lanthimos’ film will be available for streaming before the Oscars. According to information from Searchlight, the production will premiere on VOD on February 27. “Poor creatures” will be available on Prime Video and Apple TV+. From March 12, you will be able to purchase your own copy of the Blu-ray or DVD.

A day after five BAFTAs were awarded to Yorghos Lanthimos’ latest film “Poor creatures” it has been officially confirmed that this director from Greece will now remake the film “Save the Green Planet!”. It is a black comedy about a disillusioned young man who kidnaps and tortures a businessman. He is convinced that his victim is an alien who is part of a planned invasion of Earth.

The original 2003 South Korean production was directed by Joon-hwan Jang. His film won many awards and gained cult status among fans of similarly twisted, fantastic stories. It was previously speculated that Jang would also direct the Hollywood remake, which was written by Will Tracy (“Succession”). However, this will not happen.

Information provided by the portal “Variety” The production companies CJ ENM and Element Pictures, which are to produce the new version, have not been confirmed “Save the Green Planet!”. For the latter, it would be the sixth film created together with Lanthimos. This award-winning director has already made his next film. It is currently in the post-production phase “Kinds of Kindness” (“Types of kindness”), starring Emma Stone, Margaret Qualley, Willem Dafoe and Joe Alwyn.

The library of the South Korean company CJ ENM includes many Asian productions that can serve as material for the creation of their Western versions. There have already been as many as nine remakes in different languages, including: South Korean musical comedy “Miss Granny” from 2014, although these were films made mainly on the Asian market. A Thai version of the melodrama is also in the works “The Classic” from 2003. The American branch of the company is looking for famous filmmakers who would direct Hollywood versions of their hits. Such names include: Michael Mann (“Fever”), who would shoot a remake of the action comedy “Veteran” from 2015.
