The Talented Mister Barry

It's kind of weird that this news has been around for a full year but for some reason just today it's getting traction on Twitter and I somehow missed it myself when it was first announced -- Oscar nminee and longtime MNPP fave Barry Koeghan is starring in Promising Young Woman writer-director's next movie called Saltburn, which is about "a college student (Keoghan) who develops an obsession with his affluent classmate," with the classmate played by Jacob Elordi. (Also in the cast are PYW star Carey Mulligan, Rosamud Pike, and Richard E. Grant.) Maybe people are paying attention to this news now because they love Barry thanks to Banshees of Inisherin? That's not my excuse for missing it, but I miss lots of things with my head so far up my own ass and all. Anyway the relationship between the two boys in the movie is being compared to The Talented Mr. Ripley, so let's hope there are some good bath-tub chess scenes. On that note here's a photo of the lovelies on set:

Eh. Very uninspired casting. Would rather they chose someone less obviously creepy - Barry keeps getting these kinds of parts.
