Sex and the City: Mikey Madison Toplines Sean Baker’s “Anora”

Sex and the City: Mikey Madison Toplines Sean Baker’s “Anora”

As we eagerly await the 2024 edition of the Cannes Film Festival with at least one American indie film earmarked for some Croisette love …. Sean Baker‘s next feature film which would have went into production earlier this year is well past the post production phase. We now learn the player composition of the film and in which genre it falls into. Coined as a romantic dramedy, Anora will be toplined by Mikey Madison. Variety reports that FilmNation had landed the rights to the film and have been selling it like hotcakes a bit everywhere. They’ll probably hold out until the film has its world premiere to sell the US rights. Is Cannes too far into the future?

Shot on 35mm (re-teamed with Red Rocket cinematographer Drew Daniels), Anora is rumored to be about a sex worker and is set in an upscale part of Brooklyn. Madison’s most notable part was a bit of action in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Mark Eydelshteyn, Yuriy Borisov, Karren Karagulian and Vache Tovmasyan also star. It was produced by Red Rocket producers Samantha Quan, Alex Coco and Baker. We look forward to this one.
