The Form of Water received the Academy Award for Finest Image. The Lighthouse was past critically acclaimed. Each movies made big cultural splashes. Each movies star celebrated actors, celebrated for these particular performances. Each concerned express, taboo sexual fascinations with sea-people creatures. And now, Claire Foy has determined to enter this very particular ring.
Per Deadline, The Crown star Foy will star in The Pisces, primarily based on a Melissa Broder novel a couple of PhD pupil and author named Lucy who turns into erotically transfixed and obsessive about a merman (which, as everyone knows from Zoolander, is a mix man-sea-creature). Her need is used as an interrogation level for problems with psychosexuality, possession, and gender research.
Broder will co-write the screenplay alongside Gillian Robespierre, who may also direct. I beloved Robespierre’s movies with Jenny Slate, particularly Apparent Little one, and will probably be attention-grabbing to see her often lighter, funnier (however nonetheless emotionally susceptible) purview utilized to a extra explicitly darkish piece of fabric. Anne Carey and Amy Nauiokas will produce the movie for Archer Grey (Misplaced Women), and no studio nor different forged members — together with the essential merman — have been introduced. Will Doug Jones go for a twofer? Or will Robert Pattinson see what it is like on the opposite aspect?
In all seriousness, this movie sounds intriguing and, regardless of its standing as a guide (and the 2 different current movies about aquatic dalliances), wholly unique. When she’s not carrying her titular crown, Foy’s selections are attention-grabbing and interesting, and infrequently lean into style (i.e. Unsane, The Woman within the Spider’s Nest). The Pisces sounds prefer it is perhaps an ideal combine of those style impulses together with her status impulses. Can we get one other erotic fish film to win the Oscar?!
This was as inevitable as Harry having a duel to the death with Voldemort.
