Bugonia: Yorgos Lanthimos’ Next Film Confirms Release Date, Boasts a Familiar Cast

Yorgos Lanthimos is keeping busy. The director’s film, Poor Things, picked up four Oscars this year, including Best Actress for Emma Stone. His next film, Kinds of Kindness, which again stars Stone (pictured above) along with Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe and others, is out in theaters this week, just six months after Poor Things.

Lanthimos is already working on his next project, which we first heard about in February. The movie is a remake of the Korean film Save the Green Planet! And while it was deemed likely that Stone would return for her fifth collaboration with the director, we got confirmation that she and Plemons will star in the film, with a brand new baffling title, Bugonia.

Here’s the official logline for Bugonia, per TheWrap:

Two conspiracy-obsessed young men kidnap the high-powered CEO of a major company, convinced that she is an alien intent on destroying planet Earth.

The premise appears to fit well with Lanthimos’ sensibilities. Poor Things is a Frankenstein-like tale centered on a woman (Stone) with the mind and emotional volatility of a child, but the body of an adult, who navigates the world as such, while Kinds of Kindness is, frankly, hard to explain but has been described by The Wrap as a “bonkers triptych.”

The screenplay for the sci-fi comedy comes from The Menu and Succession alum Will Tracy, so odds are good that story will be good and also, odd.

We’ll still have some time to wait to see Lanthimos’ next project; Bugonia is set to premiere in theaters on November 7, 2025. icon-paragraph-end
