Nicky's My Favourite

The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos (who should have won that Oscar on Sunday) is already lining up his next next movie - no not the one with Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman; that one's already filmed I think. I mean the one after that, the one called The Favourite which we told you about right here, which will star Emma Stone (who did win that Oscar on Sunday night) and Rachel Weisz and now, just announced today, also Nicholas Hoult. Emma is a new name, and I think she's replacing Kate Winslet, who was originally attached.

The Favourite is set in the late 17th Century and is about Queen Anne (Deadline doesn't mention her name but Olivia Colman is still playing her) and the two ladies beneath her who jockey against one another for influence; Nicky will be playing "a Tory leader" and he will probably wear a lot of tight waistcoats and breeches and somebody get me a chair and a cold glass of lemonade please.

And as long as we're seated and fanning ourselves vigorously let me share that picture of Nicky and Logan Marshall Green sweating it out in their camo behind the scenes of their upcoming Iraq War thriller called Sand Castle, which also stars Henry Cavill -- you can see more like that shot right here. Looks... hot.
