A promising woman has earned her the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and now Emerald Fennell is preparing his new film.
Deadlinereports that it will be titled Saltburn , and will be able to count on Rosamund Pike as the protagonist.
As for the plot, the information is very scarce: we only know that it will revolve around a large English aristocratic family, an environment that Emerald Fennell should know well, both for his school and work experiences (she played Camilla Shand in The Crown ). Considering Rosamund Pike ‘s background and talent , the latter looks perfect for the British director’s corrosive and sarcastic gaze.
No further details on the project are available, but we will keep you updated.
Fennell first made a name for herself as an actress on Chickens, Call the Midwife, Albert Nobbs, Anna Karenina, The Danish Girl and Vita & Virginia , before coming to The Crown . She later inherited the role ofKilling Eve showrunner from Phoebe Waller-Bridge , but her writing experiences of her date back much earlier than her (her first book is from 2012).
In 2021, after the success of A Promising Woman , Warner commissioned her to script Zatanna , a project that could be at risk . She also wrote the libretto for Andrew Lloyd Webber ‘s stage musical Cinderella .
Rosamund Pike made her debut in 007 – Death Can Wait , but her consecration came in 2014 with Gone Girl (for which she received an Oscar nomination for Best Leading Actress). She recently starred in Radioactive and I Care a Lot , not forgetting the series The Wheel of Time . Among her upcoming films is Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia ‘s Rich Flu , director of The Hole .
