Director Pablo Larraín created a niche for himself with his portrayal of powerful women in history, starting with Jackie Kennedy, played by Oscar nominee Natalie Portman in “Jackie,” and now Princess Diana through the lens of Kristen Stewart in her newest movie “Spencer”. . ”
For an upcoming episode of the “Variety Awards Circuit Podcast,” Larraín recounts Various that his next entry of that kind of reimagined biographical film would be his last of that special string of film production, culminating in a trilogy.
“I don’t want to spend my whole life making these kind of movies,” he says. “I love them, but I think it’s okay to stop it.”
Still unsure who he would focus on when asked if it would be a woman or if he would be open to focus on a man, Larraín says, “No, it will be a lady with heels.”
Internet chat has been blazing with demands for Larraín’s upcoming biofilm entry to cover pop star Britney Spears, who has been the focus of conservative abuse and is expected to be released from it later this month. He shares that he feels he is not the right person to focus on Spears.
“I’m very curious,” he says of Spears as a biofilm theme. “In particular, her relationship with media. I’ve worked with the lives of certain people, and never are really biofilm. I think the bioimage concept is a bit fantastic. What would be weird is to make a film about someone like Britney Spears, and who will play her? Would she play herself? Would anyone else play her, and then she would be on the cast watching herself played by another person? That operation, I think, is really weird. If it were a fictional understanding of her, that could be very interesting. “
“Spencer” premiered at the Venice and Telluride Festivals earlier this fall, receiving brilliant reviews for its film style and powerful Kristen Stewart performance. Both Larraín and Stewart are heavy in the awards conversation, with the latter seen as the forerunner for best actress.
“Spencer” is distributed by Neon and Topic Studios and opens on November 5th.
