Neon Escorts Sean Baker’s “Anora” in 2024

In what appears to be some pre-Cannes (and pre-Venice) shopping, while the early morning buzz had NEON landing Audrey Diwan’s (currently in production) Emmanuelle, we now learn that they secured Sean Baker’s eighth feature film currently in post, Anora. The distributor plan to launch the film in 2024 and all eyes are on a Cannes competition berth – where he premiered Red Rocket (read review) in 2021. Confirmed players on the romantic dramedy include Mikey Madison, Mark Eydelshteyn, Yuriy Borisov, Karren Karagulian, and Vache Tovmasyan. This is rumored to be about a sex worker and is set in an upscale part of Brooklyn. Producers include Baker, Samantha Quan, Alex Coco.
