IndieSponge Episode 7 – The Latest on Lanthimos, Zagar, Soderbergh, Chan-Wook & David Robert Mitchell

On this week’s episode of IndieSponge, Kevin Jagernauth and I begin with how the Oscars are likely to be turned upside down, the promising new developments on The Hawkline Monster — the new Spaghetti Western monster movie to be directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, and how the the latest developments in Netflix-Sandler bromance means great news for indie filmmakers such as Jeremiah Zagar (Hustle). We also look at where the likes of Park Chan-Wook, David Robert Mitchell (Heroes & Villains) and Steven Soderbergh (Sex, Lies and, Videotape sequel) are headed in near future and we take a closer look at one directorial debut in the works that caught our attention: Frances O’Connor‘s Emily – a look into the Brontë family with quartet Emma Mackey, Joe Alwyn, Fionn Whitehead and Emily Beecham attached. Thanks for watching our COVID-19 edition of IndieSponge.
