The Most-Anticipated Films of 2023

In costume as Leonard Bernstein, Bradley Cooper lines up a shot of Carey Mulligan on the set of Maestro (2023)

Any overview of the most-anticipated films of 2023 is going to either build up to or start right off with Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Robert De Niro plays William Hale, an exceedingly corrupt Oklahoma rancher who plotted to have key members of the Osage Nation murdered after oil was discovered on their tribal land in the early 1920s. Former Texas Ranger Tom White—played by Jesse Plemons and described by David Grann, who wrote the 2017 book the film is based on, as “an old-style lawman”—heads up the FBI investigation.

The role of Tom White was originally written for Leonardo DiCaprio, who opted instead to play Hale’s nephew. Killers also features Lily Gladstone, Brendan Fraser, and John Lithgow as well as cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (Silence, The Irishman) and music by Robbie Robertson (The Last Waltz, The Wolf of Wall Street). Critic Jenna Ipcar has noted that when Scorsese appeared with Joanna Hogg at the Metrograph a couple of weeks ago, he mentioned that Killers will be released “in a few months.”

July 21 will see the release of two of the year’s headliners, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, starring Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the “father of the atom bomb,” and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, featuring Margot Robbie as the doll with the impossible figure and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Tom Cruise will return to save the movies again when Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, opens on July 14. Once Dune: Part Two is released in November, Denis Villeneuve will be free to turn to Rendezvous with Rama, an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s 1973 novel about an alien spaceship that enters the solar system in the 2130s. And at some point this year, we’ll see David Lowery’s Peter Pan & Wendy, starring Jude Law as Captain Hook.

Doubling Up

Since releasing his first feature, Bottle Rocket (1996), Wes Anderson has spent at least two years working on each succeeding film, but in 2023, he’ll have Asteroid City out on June 16 and The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar in the fall. Set at a Junior Stargazer convention in a desert town in 1955, Asteroid City features such Anderson regulars as Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody, and so on, but also a few newcomers to his meticulously designed worlds, including Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Steve Carell, and Hong Chau.

Henry Sugar’s cast doesn’t sprawl quite as wide. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the character whose life echoes that of its creator, Roald Dahl, over the course of three chapters. Shot in London for Netflix, the film also stars Ralph Fiennes, Dev Patel, Ben Kingsley, Rupert Friend, and Richard Ayoade.

Yorgos Lanthimos reportedly has two features in postproduction as well. Adapted by Tony McNamara (The Favourite) from the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray, Poor Things stars Emma Stone as a woman who drowns herself to escape her abusive husband but is revived when her brain is replaced by that of her unborn child. The cast also features Willem Dafoe, Mark Ruffalo, Ramy Youssef, Jerrod Carmichael, Margaret Qualley, and Kathryn Hunter. Stone, Dafoe, and Qualley will also appear in And, an anthology film Lanthimos cowrote with his frequent collaborator Efthymis Filippou and shot this fall in New Orleans.

A24 in ’23

There was a lot of discussion this year of A24 as an independent production company and distributor with a unique brand and a dedicated following. Not one but two pieces appearing in August bore the title “The Cult of A24.” The company is running with it. Among the many films A24 will definitely or potentially release in 2023 are Ari Aster’s Beau Is Afraid, a “decades-spanning surrealist horror film set in an alternate present” starring Joaquin Phoenix; Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, based on Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir Elvis and Me; and I Saw the TV Glow, the story of two teens coping with the cancelation of their favorite series. Jane Schoenbrun (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) directs Justice Smith (Jurassic World Dominion), Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical), Helena Howard (Madeline’s Madeline), and Danielle Deadwyler (Till).

Zac Efron stars as professional wrestler Kevin Von Erich in The Iron Claw, directed by Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene, The Nest), and Kristen Stewart will play the protective lover of a female bodybuilder in Love Lies Bleeding, directed by Rose Glass (Saint Maud). Joe Talbot (The Last Black Man in San Francisco) will direct Lily-Rose Depp (The King), Hoyeon (Squid Game), and Renate Reinsve (The Worst Person in the World) in The Governesses, an adaptation of Anne Serre’s 1992 novel that publisher New Directions calls a “semi-deranged erotic fairy tale.”

Over the summer, just after Men premiered at Cannes and he was already shooting Civil War, Alex Garland told the Telegraph’s Robbie Collin just enough about the project for Collin to surmise that it will serve “as a sci-fi allegory for our currently polarized predicament.” Sean L. Malin, a culture writer for Vulture and the New York Times, hears that Zone of Interest, the adaptation of Martin Amis’s 2014 novel that Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin) has been working on for years, will likely be ready to roll out at Cannes or Venice. Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann) and Christian Friedel (Babylon Berlin) star in the story of a Nazi officer who falls for the camp commandant’s wife at Auschwitz.

Americans Abroad . . .

Michael Mann spent the summer in Italy, shooting his fourteenth feature, Ferrari, starring Adam Driver as the racer and entrepreneur, Penélope Cruz as his wife, and Shailene Woodley as his mistress. Jonah Weiner visited the set for the New York Times, and Mann told him that “when Ferrari was a teenager, he asked himself the most fundamental question, which fascinates me from movie to movie: ‘Who shall I be in this world?’”

Back in March, David Fincher wrapped production on The Killer, a project he first took up in 2007 and eventually shot in Paris, New Orleans, and the Dominican Republic. Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en) wrote the adaptation of Alexis Nolent’s noirish graphic novel about a professional assassin who thinks he may be losing his mind. Michael Fassbender stars alongside Tilda Swinton, who will not only appear in Asteroid City but may also pop up this year in Joshua Oppenheimer’s The End, a musical about the last family on the planet, and the still-unnamed project she’s been working on with writer and comedian Julio Torres.

Ellen Kuras completed shooting on Lee in Croatia and Hungary just a few weeks ago. Kate Winslet plays Lee Miller, a New York model in the 1920s, a fashion photographer in Paris in the 1930s, and a war correspondent for Vogue in the 1940s. The cast also features Andy Samberg, Marion Cotillard, Alexander Skarsgård, Andrea Riseborough, Josh O’Connor, and Noémie Merlant.

. . . And at Home

Todd Haynes wrapped May December last month in Georgia. Natalie Portman plays Elizabeth Berry, an actress preparing for a film in which she will portray Gracie Atherton-Yu (Julianne Moore), who made tabloid headlines twenty years ago when she struck up an affair with a much younger man. Now they’re married and their twins are about to graduate from high school, but Elizabeth’s presence is rattling the family dynamic.

Maestro, starring Bradley Cooper as Leonard Bernstein and Carey Mulligan as his wife, Felicia Montealegre, was originally a Martin Scorsese project. But Scorsese opted for The Irishman instead. Steven Spielberg considered taking it up, but as Cooper told the story back in January, “Steven has a lot of interests—he’ll just choose one thing and all of the other things will be on hold. I think he knew he wasn’t going to make that movie for a while. He was kind enough to hand it off to me, and that’s what I’ve been doing for the last four and a half years.”

Rebecca Miller (Maggie’s Plan) will direct Anne Hathaway, Peter Dinklage, and Marisa Tomei in She Came to Me, a trio of interwoven New York love stories. Amy Adams plays a mother raising a toddler in the suburbs when she begins to feel that she’s turning into a canine in Nightbitch, directed by Marielle Heller (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood). In Alexander Payne’s The Holdovers, Paul Giamatti plays an unpopular teacher stuck with supervising a rebellious student over the Christmas holidays.

Written by Dustin Lance Black (Milk), directed by George C. Wolfe (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), and produced by Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions, Rustin stars Colman Domingo as gay and civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, a key figure in the March on Washington Movement. Regina King will play Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman elected to Congress, in John Ridley’s Shirley.

In 1963, photographer Danny Lyon joined the Chicago Outlaws, a motorcycle club, and began taking pictures. His book The Bikeriders appeared in 1968 and serves as inspiration for the film Jeff Nichols shot this fall with Tom Hardy, Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, and Michael Shannon. M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin, in which four strangers demand that a family make a terrible sacrifice in order to ward off the apocalypse, hits theaters on February 3, and Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike’s Last Dance, the third and final film starring Channing Tatum as a male stripper, will be out on February 10.

America from the Outside In

Twenty years after his Philip K. Dick adaptation Paycheck, John Woo has returned to the States to make Silent Night, an action movie without a word of dialogue. Joel Kinnaman stars as a father who ventures into the underworld to avenge the death of his young son. Kantemir Balagov (Beanpole) will tell the story of the knotty relationship between a father and son in a tight-knit New Jersey community of Kabardian immigrants in his English-language feature, Butterfly Jam.

Fresh from his road trip across the country with a pair of cannibal lovers in Bones and All, Luca Guadagnino will stick to Boston in Challengers. A tennis coach (Zendaya) has trained her husband (Mike Faist) and signed him up for a Challenger event where he will square off against her former lover, played by Josh O’Connor—who will also star with Paul Mescal in The History of Sound, an adaptation of the Pushcart Prize–winning short story by Ben Shattuck. Oliver Hermanus directs the love story of two men who set out to record the voices and music of Americans during the First World War.

Cinematographer Benoît Delhomme, who has worked with Tran Anh Hung, Tsai Ming-liang, Anthony Minghella, and Julian Schnabel, will make his directorial debut with Mother’s Instinct. Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway play best friends and neighbors in an idyllic suburb in the early 1960s, when their bond is broken by a tragic accident.

Alonso Ruizpalacios (Museo, A Cop Story) directs Rooney Mara in an adaptation of Arnold Wesker’s 1957 play, The Kitchen. A bustling New York restaurant draws a colorful mix of customers during the lunchtime rush. New Order director Michel Franco’s first film set in the U.S. was Chronic (2015), and he’s since returned to direct Jessica Chastain, Peter Sarsgaard, Merritt Wever, and Jessica Harper in Memory. Filming wrapped in New York in May, and so far, that’s all that’s publicly known about the project.

2023 just might be the year that we finally see Eureka, the four-part exploration of Native American culture that Lisandro Alonso first announced in 2018. Featuring Chiara Mastroianni, Maria de Medeiros, and Viggo Mortensen, the project was interrupted by the pandemic in 2020, but shooting resumed in 2021.

From France

Isabelle Huppert has lined up another amazing year that will likely begin with the release in France of François Ozon’s My Crime on March 3. “Ozon has not officially revealed the storyline,” notes Deadline’s Melanie Goodfellow, “but it is believed to revolve around a penniless actress who is accused of murdering a famous producer but is acquitted on the basis that her act was in self-defense.” The cast includes “rising actresses” Nadia Tereszkiewicz and Rebecca Marder as well as Fabrice Luchini, Dany Boon, and André Dussollier.

Huppert will go it alone in Marianne, a one-character project from writer and director Michael Rozek, who promises “a zeitgeist movie meant to exactly capture the moment we are all living in.” In Élise Girard’s Sidonie au Japon, Huppert plays a writer on a book tour. When she strikes up an affair with her publisher (Tsuyoshi Ihara), she sees the ghost of her husband (August Diehl). And Dario Argento announced this summer that he plans to remake a Mexican thriller from the 1940s—he wouldn’t drop the title—with Huppert in Paris this coming spring.

In July, Catherine Breillat wrapped Last Summer, her first feature since 2013’s Abuse of Weakness (starring, of course, Isabelle Huppert). Playing a lawyer and mother who begins a stormy affair with her husband’s seventeen-year-old son from his first marriage, Léa Drucker leads this new loose adaptation of May el-Toukhy’s Queen of Hearts (2019).

Opening in France on March 8, Philippe Garrel’s La lune crevée features his three children, Louis, Esther, and Léna Garrel, in the story of a family-run traveling puppet show. When their father dies during a performance, the three siblings and their grandmother do what they can to sustain his legacy.

Taking inspiration from Henry James’s 1903 novella The Beast in the Jungle, Bertrand Bonello will direct Léa Seydoux in The Beast, a story set in three distinct periods: 1910, 2014, and 2044. In the near future, emotions have become a threat, so Gabrielle (Seydoux) decides to cleanse her DNA, revisit her past lives, and rid herself of any and all feeling. But then she meets Louis (George MacKay).

Bruno Dumont’s The Empire looks to be a true head-spinner. When a child is born to a working-class couple in a sleepy fishing village, knights from rival interplanetary kingdoms arrive to fight it out over the fate of the babe they call Margat, the resurgent Prince, the Beast of the End Times. Mélanie Laurent will direct herself, Isabelle Adjani, and Adèle Exarchopoulos in La grande odalisque, which Adjani describes as a “female Mission Impossible.

Ladj Ly, whose Les misérables won the Jury Prize in Cannes, has begun shooting Les indesirables, a two-hander starring Anta Diaw as a fierce young social worker and Alexis Manenti as a new mayor who cross paths and purposes in a banlieue threatened by gentrification. Hafsia Herzi has begun work on La petite dernière, the story of Fatima, the youngest daughter in a family of Algerian immigrants who begins to realize that she’s attracted to women.

Quentin Dupieux has just wrapped Daaaaaali! Anaïs Demoustier, Gilles Lellouche, Pierre Niney, Alain Chabat, Pio Marmaï, and Jonathan Cohen star in the story of a French journalist at work on a documentary about the surrealist artist. Niney, Vincent Elbaz, and Françoise Lebrun will headline Michel Gondry’s The Book of Solutions, in which a director seeks to vanquish the demons stifling his creativity.

In her follow-up to Sybil (2019), Justine Triet is reuniting with Sandra Hüller on Anatomie d’une chute, the story of a German writer put on trial after her husband’s death has been declared “suspicious.” Belgian director Joachim Lafosse, in the meantime, has cast Emmanuelle Devos and Daniel Auteuil in Un silence, his tenth feature. The story remains, as they say, under wraps, but Lafosse did tell Cineuropa that he aims “to try to show and explain why it’s so difficult to speak out.”

Five Brits

The BBC’s Sharuna Sagar dropped by the set of Ken Loach’s The Old Oak last month. The title is the name of the pub at the center of a former mining village in northeast England, where the community has splintered over the arrival of Syrian refugees. When Sagar asked Loach why he and screenwriter Paul Laverty wanted to return to the region where they set I, Daniel Blake (2016) and Sorry We Missed You (2019), Loach said that it “encapsulates both the gross exploitation, the inequality, and the sense of being neglected with a real strength and a history of solidarity and the wit of the people as well.”

Saoirse Ronan is leading the cast of Steve McQueen’s Blitz, which focuses on a group of Londoners during the aerial bombing of the city during the Second World War. McQueen has just completed Occupied City, a documentary about Amsterdam during the war, and his new two-channel video projection Sunshine will be unveiled in Rotterdam next month.

Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Claire Foy, and Jamie Bell star in Strangers, Andrew Haigh’s loose adaptation of Taichi Yamada’s 1987 novel about a screenwriter, Adam (Scott), who befriends a couple with an eerie resemblance to his long-dead parents (Foy and Bell). Over time, Adam begins to realize that they are indeed ghosts, and they’re sapping the life out of him.

Ridley Scott’s Napoleon stars Joaquin Phoenix as the French conqueror and Vanessa Kirby as Empress Joséphine. Scott recently spoke to Empire’s Ben Travis about rewriting the screenplay as Phoenix kept raising pertinent questions. “Joaquin is about as far from conventional as you can get,” he said. “Joaquin is probably the most special, thoughtful actor I’ve ever worked with.”

After writing, directing, and starring in Prevenge (2016), Alice Lowe is at it again in Timestalker, which she calls a “reincarnation rom-com.” She plays a women who keeps falling for the same wrong guy—in 1680s Scotland, 1790s England, 1980s Manhattan, and yet again in an apocalyptic future.

Berlin School’s Out

Undine (2020), starring Paula Beer as a water nymph, unofficially launched Christian Petzold’s series of films exploring the elements. In The Red Sky, fires rage in the woods near a vacation home on the Baltic coast. The four young people staying there seem more intimidated by the prospect of falling in love than by the encroaching flames. Christoph Hochhäusler’s new thriller Till the End of the Night, in the meantime, centers on an undercover cop who aims to win the trust of a drug dealer by convincing him he’s in a romantic relationship with his former employee, a trans woman.

Freely inspired by the myth of Oedipus, Angela Schanelec’s Music is the story of a young man raised by step-parents in Greece. He unwittingly murders his father, is tried and sentenced, and falls in love with a woman who works at the prison. He doesn’t realize who she actually is, but we do. Twenty years later, he begins losing his eyesight. Valeska Grisebach tells the story of a woman living in the border region between Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey in The Dreamed Adventure. Grisebach only received funding a few months ago, so we may not see her follow-up to Western (2017) until next year.

Vicky Krieps plays Austrian poet and writer Ingeborg Bachmann and Ronald Zehrfeld portrays Max Frisch, the Swiss playwright and novelist, in Margarethe von Trotta’s Bachmann & Frisch, the story of an on-again, off-again affair. In Jessica Hausner’s Club Zero, Mia Wasikowska plays a teacher at an international boarding school, where she encourages her students to eat less in order to live healthier lives. Parents eventually begin to suspect that their kids have taken the lesson too far.

Central Europeans

Paweł Pawlikowski may or may not have The Island set to go before 2023 is out. Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara have signed up to star in the 1930s-set thriller about an American couple setting up their own private paradise on a desert island only to have it upended by a European countess. Agnieszka Holland announced her intention to tell the story of Kafka “as a kind of collage” or a “chamber portrait” back in January, but little has been heard about the project since.

Similarly, Radu Jude spoke at length with Variety’s Christopher Vourlias back in February about A Case History, a diptych setting a road movie with echoes of Romanian director Lucian Bratu’s Angela Moves On (1981) next to the story of the making of a corporate film. The “final picture is obtained by juxtaposing the two of them in what we can call ‘a tale of cinema and economy,’” said Jude. Let’s hope we hear more about A Case History early next year.


Josh O’Connor plays an English archeologist caught up in the illegal trafficking of ancient finds in 1980s Italy in Alice Rohrwacher’s La chimera. The cast also features Isabella Rossellini, Carol Duarte, Vincenzo Nemolato, and of course, Alba Rohrwacher. Very much set in the present, Matteo Garrone’s I, Captain tracks the journey of two young men from Dakar to the Italian coast.

Marco Bellocchio (Fists in the Pocket) will tell the true story of a Jewish boy kidnapped and converted to Catholicism in 1858 in La conversione. Shooting for the big screen for the first time since Ripley’s Game (2002), Liliana Cavani (The Night Porter) has been working on L’ordine del tempo, a story based on the book by theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli. A group of old friends meet once a year in a villa by the sea, but at this year’s party, they discover that the world may be ending within just a few hours.

Víctor Erice (The Spirit of the Beehive) is wrapping his first feature since Dream of Light (1992). In Cerrar los ojos, a famous Spanish actor disappears from a film set and is presumed dead. Years later, a television program revives interest in the case. Pedro Almodóvar, in the meantime, has shot a short western. Strange Way of Life stars Pedro Pascal as Silva, who rides across the desert to drop in on his old friend, Jake, a sheriff played by Ethan Hawke.

Among the many hoping that the erotic thriller will make a comeback is Fernando Trueba (Belle Époque). In Haunted Hearts, a young waitress at a seaside restaurant in Greece falls for the owner, an older American with a dark and mysterious past. Matt Dillon headlines the cast, which includes Aida Folch and Juan Pablo Urrego.

Nuri Bilge Ceylan is widely expected to return to Cannes with On Dry Grass, the story of a teacher who feels he’s done his time in a small village in eastern Turkey. He anxiously awaits a transfer to Istanbul. “It’s got a lot of snow,” Ceylan told Nirit Anderman last month when On Dry Grass came up briefly in their conversation for Haaretz.

Across the Pacific

Ever since Hayao Miyazaki presented a proposal and a first round of storyboards for a feature in the summer of 2016, How Do You Live? has been one of the most eagerly—yet patiently—awaited films from anywhere. Inspired by Yoshino Genzaburo’s 1937 novel about a fifteen-year-old who moves in with his uncle after his father dies, How Do You Live?, written and directed by Miyazaki and animated by the reopened Studio Ghibli, will arrive in Japanese theaters on July 14.

We don’t know much yet about Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Monster other than that Yuji Sakamoto, a popular television writer, has written the screenplay. A wisp of a teaser suggests that the story may focus on two young boys, and we can probably count on learning more before the film opens in Japan in June.

A new trailer announces that Zhang Yimou’s Full River Red will open in China on January 22. Starring Jackson Lee and set during the Song dynasty, the mystery centers on efforts to eliminate a traitorous minister. Back in March, word got around that Bi Gan would be shooting his third feature this year, but little has been heard about it since. Kino Lorber, though, will soon have the fifteen-minute A Short Story in theaters with the rerelease of Long Day’s Journey into Night (2018).

Gu Xiaogang’s Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains (2019) launched a Shan shui painting series that will continue with Dwelling by the West Lake, the story of a young man who arrives in Hangzhou to look for his missing father and to save his mother, who has unwittingly been drawn into the criminal underworld. Shih-Ching Tsou, who frequently collaborates with Sean Baker (Take Out), is shooting a family drama in Taipei. Shot by Tzu-Hao Kao, Left-Handed Girl will star Jian-Wei Huang and Janel Tsai.

Australian director Kitty Green is reteaming with Julia Garner, the star of The Assistant (2019), for The Royal Hotel. Two backpackers (Garner and Jessica Henwick) run out of money and take temporary jobs at a bar in a remote mining town. The owner of the bar (Hugo Weaving) seems friendly enough—at first. Cate Blanchett will star in Warwick Thornton’s The New Boy, the story of an Aboriginal orphan who arrives at a remote Australian monastery in the 1940s. Justin Kurzel’s Morning, starring Laura Dern and Benedict Cumberbatch, is set in a near future when a pill does away with the need to sleep and, up in the sky, there’s an artificial sun that beams around the clock.


Up to Finland, where Aki Kaurismäki began shooting Dead Leaves in August. The storyline remains a mystery, but Kaurismäki had this to say in June: “Tragicomedy seems to be my genre. I like to return to the themes of my youth and talk about the little man’s struggle against the faceless machine—and himself—all the while not forgetting about the humor.”

Brazilian director Karim Aïnouz, who studied in New York and has been living in Berlin for the past several years, recently shot Firebrand, his first English-language feature, in London. Alicia Vikander stars as Catherine Parr, the sixth and final wife of Henry VIII (Jude Law). In Pablo Larraín’s El conde, Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet is still around. In fact, he’s been alive for 250 years. He’s a vampire, and now, finally, he has decided to die once and for all.

In September, Abderrahmane Sissako (Timbuktu) began shooting The Perfumed Hill, the story of a young woman (Nina Melo) who says no on her wedding day and leaves the Ivory Coast to start a new life in China. In Guangzhou, she meets the owner of a tea shop and, over time, falls in love.

Swedish director Johan Renck is adapting Jaroslav Kalfař's 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia for Netflix. Adam Sandler stars as Jakub Procházka, a Czech astronaut who embarks on a solo mission to the outer edge of the galaxy to investigate a mysterious cloud of ancient dust. The cast also features Paul Dano, Carey Mulligan, and Isabella Rossellini.

Status Unknown

Sandler will star in the next film from Josh and Benny Safdie (Uncut Gems), but neither the directors nor their star are saying much about the project at this point. Francis Ford Coppola has been shooting his dream project, Megalopolis, over the past few weeks, but one can imagine that postproduction on the sci-fi drama will take quite a while. That cast, though: Adam Driver, Forest Whitaker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Grace VanderWaal, Kathryn Hunter, Talia Shire, and Dustin Hoffman.

Back in the summer of 2021, Fabrice Aragno, who worked closely with Jean-Luc Godard on his last three features, told Variety’s Will Thorne that the late filmmaker was working on two projects. One of them, Scénario, produced by Mitra Farahani (See You Friday, Robinson), may eventually be completed and released in some form.

Updates on Brady Corbet’s The Brutalist, starring Joel Edgerton as an architect, Marion Cotillard as his wife, and Mark Rylance as a charming industrialist, have been few and far between. Ethan Coen’s next film, cowritten with Tricia Cooke and starring Margaret Qualley, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Beanie Feldstein, is in production, but even the title is still a secret.

As for Bong Joon Ho’s Mickey 17, starring Robert Pattinson, and George Miller’s Furiosa, a prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) starring Anya Taylor-Joy, we already know that we’ll have to wait until 2024.
