Emma Stone To Star In Yorgos Lanthimos’ Next Big Project ‘Bugonia’

Emma Stone is now trending everywhere, not only for her gorgeous style at Cannes 2024, but for another huge update which is related to her next big project. Yes, I am talking about “Bugonia!”

In a significant acquisition announcement at the Cannes Film Festival, Focus Features has secured the worldwide rights for Yorgos Lanthimos’ highly anticipated project, “Bugonia.” The film, described as a remake of the South Korean sci-fi comedy “Save the Green Planet,” marks a compelling collaboration between the visionary Greek director and acclaimed actors Emma Stone and Jesse Plemons.

“Bugonia” follows the story of two conspiracy-obsessed young men who embark on a daring mission to kidnap a high-powered CEO, convinced she is an alien intent on destroying Earth. With Lanthimos at the helm and a stellar cast including Stone and Plemons, the project promises a blend of dark humor and thought-provoking narrative exploration.

Speaking on the partnership, Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawski expressed enthusiasm for collaborating with Lanthimos and the talented team behind “Bugonia.” He remarked, “Yorgos Lanthimos is a cinematic visionary with a singular style that has captivated audiences worldwide. We could not be more excited to partner with him, Emma, and the incredible teams…”

The project reunites Lanthimos with producers Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element Pictures, Square Peg’s Ari Aster and Lars Knudsen, Emma Stone through her Fruit Tree banner, and Jerry Kyoungboum Ko of CJ ENM. Their collective dedication to bringing this twisted narrative to life underscores the collaborative effort driving the production forward.

We are so looking forward to working with the brilliant team at Focus Features and are delighted to be reuniting with Yorgos, Emma, and Jesse as well as many of the great crew we have collaborated with on recent films,” commented producers Guiney and Lowe, highlighting the camaraderie within the production team.

Additionally, Jerry Kyoungboum Ko expressed excitement about introducing this intriguing story rooted in Korean cinema to a global audience. He emphasized the collaboration between international talent and producers, signaling a commitment to showcasing diverse narratives and fostering creative partnerships.

Fremantle’s involvement further elevates the project, with CEO of Global Drama Christian Vesper expressing excitement about Fremantle’s support for Element Pictures. Fremantle’s majority stake in Element Pictures, acquired in 2022, signifies a strategic partnership aimed at bolstering the production company’s creative endeavors.

Element Pictures, featured as one of Deadline’s Cannes Disruptors 2024, brings a diverse slate of films to Cannes, including “Kinds of Kindness,” “September Says,” and “On Becoming a Guinea Fowl.” This diverse lineup underscores Element Pictures’ commitment to supporting emerging filmmakers and telling compelling stories across various genres.

As “Bugonia” garners attention on the Cannes stage, the collaboration between Focus Features, Element Pictures, and Fremantle exemplifies the dynamic and collaborative nature of contemporary filmmaking. With Yorgos Lanthimos’ visionary direction, a stellar cast, and a dedicated production team, “Bugonia” promises to be a cinematic experience unlike any other, captivating audiences worldwide.
