A hot package is hitting the Cannes market next week. According to a report from Deadline, Jacob Elordi, Barry Keoghan and Rosamund Pike will star in Emerald Fennell’s upcoming film, Saltburn.
For those who don’t know, Fennell is an award-winning filmmaker. She most recently wrote/directed Promising Young Woman, which was released in 2020 to rave reviews. The movie actually won Best Original Screenplay at the 93rd Academy Awards.
And now, Fennell will follow up that masterpiece with this upcoming ‘Saltburn’ flick. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but sources say it deals with obsession. So perhaps either Elordi or Keoghan are obsessing over Pike? Some sort of thriller?
MRC will take the package to the Cannes market next week, and it is expected to be one of the hotter properties on the market. The pic will be produced by Fennell and LuckyChap Entertainment’s Josey McNamara, Tom Ackerley and Margot Robbie.
Filming is expected to begin this summer in the UK, which means a 2023 release date is likely. It should be a film to watch. No doubt about it.
