Yorgos Lanthimos is Emma Stone‘s biggest fan, and vice versa. The duo are working with one another again on a new upcoming project titled Bugonia.

With Stone cast as the leading actress, the drama is also set to star Jesse Plemons, who also appears alongside Stone in Lanthimos’ latest Kinds of Kindness. The three are joining forces once again for a new film, this time, an alien conspiracy drama. The plot follows two young men who are obsessed with conspiracies and kidnap a high-powered CEO of a major company after being convinced that she is an alien who came to Earth to destroy the planet. Penning the script is Succession and The Menu‘s Will Tracy.

The project lands at Focus Features to distribute the film domestically while Universal Pictures will roll out the film in global territories. The film is based on a 2003 Korean film titled Save the Green Planet and according to Variety, “it was developed for English adaptation by acclaimed director Ari Aster and Lars Knudsen for their Square Peg production label.” Producers on the film include Lanthimos, Stone and Miky Lee and Jerry Kyoungboum Ko alongside Lanthimos veterans Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe.

Lanthimos has had a prolific body of work that includes The Favourite and Poor Things, which earned 11 Oscar nominations and four wins, one that included Stone’s best actress award. Stay tuned for more information on the film.
