“Oppenheimer” by Christopher, the second part of “Dune”, a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe… We take stock of the projects of Florence Pugh, currently starring in “Don’t Worry Darling”.
If it didn’t take long for Florence Pugh to become the actress that everyone is tearing up, it will probably take more to dislodge her. Headlining Don’t Worry Darling, an intriguing second feature film directed by Olivia Wilde that she carries on her shoulders, the actress has already shot six films or whose shots are in the process of coming.
And not the least, since it will be as good in the second part of Dune as the next opus of Christopher Nolan, and will know how to venture in front of Sebastian Lelio’s camera as well as make a thunderous return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It will also be necessary to count on Florence Pugh on the side of the series, because it is question that she will be the main actress of a new adaptation of East of Eden that Zoe Kazan is preparing (The Rebel Weddings, The Big Sick) for Netflix. The project being in development, we have excluded it from the list below, already well supplied, which concerns only those who are more advanced.
The Wonder by Sebastian Lelio
November 16, 2022 on Netflix – Another festival beast on Netflix! Noticed thanks to Gloria and A fantastic woman, which won him the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2018, Sebastian Lelio will present his new feature film on the platform, which has acquired the distribution rights, in the United States and in the rest of the world, even if it will pass through a few cinemas.
Either The Wonder, a historical drama adapted from the homonymous novel by Emma Donoghue (Room, transposed to the cinema with Brie Larson), and the opportunity for the director born in Argentina to continue his work in English, thanks to the story of this nurse (Florence Pugh) sent to a small village in Ireland to determine if a young girl’s survival for months without food was a miracle or a medical anomaly.
Set in 1862, the story will oppose Florence Pugh to Niamh Algar (Raised by Wolves) while the director should not fail to shake up, once again, our certainties. While offering us new portraits of women.
Puss in Boots 2 by Joel Crawford & Januel P. Mercado
December 7, 2022 at the cinema – When Florence Pugh gives voice! Puss in Boots 2 (also called The Last Quest) will mark the actress’ first experience in dubbing. Because it was she who was entrusted with the role of Goldilocks, which we see in the trailer as the gang leader with her three bears as bodyguards.
We do not yet know what its place will be in the plot, or whether this rereading of the famous tale will occupy a part of the story or will just be the subject of a long gag. But it is already certain that Florence Pugh will give the answer to Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, who resume their respective roles in the original version. Can we then expect Boris Rehlinger and Virginie Efira to do the same, those who participated in the first opus?
Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer
July 21, 2023 at the cinema – Regulars (Kenneth Branagh, Matt Damon or even Cillian Murphy, who is playing the main role in one of his films for the first time) and a handful of prestigious newcomers. Including Robert Downey Jr. in his first post-Marvel Cinematic Universe project, Emily Blunt, Rami Malek. And Florence Pugh.
For his new feature film (and his first foray into the field of the biopic, he who has long been attached to a film on Howard Hughes), Christopher Nolan has again offered himself an XXL casting. Gathered in front of his camera, these actors and actresses will help him tell the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist whose work led to the creation of the atomic bomb and its use at the end of the Second World War.
Partly shot in black and white, Oppenheimer has every chance of being set up as a thriller, judging by the very first teaser as well as Christopher Nolan’s favorite genre. Florence Pugh will play Jean Tatlock, member of the Communist Party in the United States and mistress of the main character. And, like everywhere she goes, we can imagine her stealing a few scenes.
Dune – Part 2 by Denis Villeneuve
November 15, 2023 at the cinema – Did you find the cast of Dune impressive? Sit down before reading the names of newcomers to the second part of the adaptation signed Denis Villeneuve then. Because Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya or Rebecca Ferguson will be joined by Austin Butler (Feyd-Rautha), Christopher Walken (Emperor Shaddam IV), Léa Seydoux (Lady Margot) and Souheila Yacoub (Shishkali).
And, therefore, Florence Pugh, who will lend her features to Princess Irulan Corrino, daughter of Shaddam IV whom Virginia Madsen played in the feature film by David Lynch, appearing in the very first image of the film. Will it be the same in Denis Villeneuve’s second opus, currently filming and whose French release has recently been postponed to November 15, 2023? We will probably have to wait until then to get to the bottom of it.
But there is no doubt that the first appearance (or photo) of Florence Pugh in the film will be highly anticipated, because she has everything to steal the show from her partners, while her role will be central in the career of Paul Atreides.
A Good Person by Zach Braff
2023 – “I know my opinion is biased, but Florence Pugh’s performance is the most miraculous thing you’ll see,” Zach Braff said last March of his fourth feature film as a director. “I’m not overselling it. It’s a drama. She’s up against Morgan Freeman who you haven’t seen like this in years.”
“I know everything Florence does is amazing. People say she might be the best actress of her generation. I think she’s one of the best actresses working.” It is obviously difficult to find fault with the author of Garden State, even if it is necessary to specify that he spoke of the one who was then his companion. Their separation came after the filming of this feature film in which a young woman regains a taste for life thanks to her stepfather, years after being involved in a fatal accident.
In March, Zach Braff did not know if A Good Person would be released in 2022 or 2023. Today, it seems fairly certain to expect a release next year. In theaters or on a streaming platform.
Jake Schreier’s Thunderbolts
July 24, 2024 at the cinema – Like many young actors and actresses on the rise, Florence Pugh succumbed to the sirens of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. To embody Yelena Belova, sister of Black Widow in the film of the same name. Seen then in a few episodes of the series Hawkeye, it is on the big screen that she will make her return. And it will obviously take the lead, if we trust this concept art unveiled at the same time as the team that will constitute the Thunderbolts.
In this equivalent of DC’s Suicide Squad, where villains or anti-heroes carry out secret missions for remissions, Yelena Belova should play the lead alongside Red Guardian and Taskmaster (David Harbor and Olga Kurylenko, already in Black Widow ), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), US Agent (Wyatt Russell) and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), while Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) may be the one who brings it all together world.
Expected in just under two years, the feature film has a director (Jake Schreier, to whom we owe Robot and Frank) but no synopsis yet. Or an enemy that squad members will have to take down.
