Psychological horror film stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, and Matt Smith.
Director Edgar Wright has announced on Twitter that his new movie, Last Night in Soho, will now be released on April 23, 2021. The film was previously set for release in September of this year.
“Haunted by someone else’s past, but we’ll see you in the future…” Wright wrote. “It’s true, Last Night in Soho is not quite finished yet due to Covid-19. But, I’m excited for you all to experience it, at a big screen near you, on April 23, 2021.”
Wright’s follow-up to his 2017 hit heist movie Baby Driver is a psychological horror film which stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, Matt Smith, Michael Ajao, Synnøve Karlsen, Diana Rigg, Terence Stamp, and Rita Tushingham. Wright wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns.
Wright announced on Twitter last week that his 2010 film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World would be returning to cinemas when it was safe for the film to be seen. The director revealed that “we were going to do this in August, but make no mistake, this will happen soon. #ScottPilgrim back on the big screen thanks to @DolbyCinema & @UniversalPics. Can’t wait.”

Hollywood is now completely stopped at the level of production. However, the processes before and after are kept on the go as they can be performed more easily through electronic means. ‘Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness’ has continued its pre-production without problems and for now maintains its goal of starting to shoot in June, it remains to be seen if his release date is affected by having to wait for the previous movie of the UCM is to premiere.
Meanwhile, George Miller also is working on the first steps of his next film, the spin-off of ‘Mad Max’, ‘Furiousa’. The director has been having meetings via Skype with several people for the role, among which Variey stands out to Anya Taylor-Joy.
The actress, born in the united States but with family influences of England and Argentina (he speaks Spanish perfectly), has a promising career ahead with a few roles he has had in Hollywood. He made his debut in the horror movie ‘The Witch’ (also the first film by director Robert Eggers with another promising career), then made the leap to ‘Multiple’ and ‘Glass’, sharing house with James McAvoy, and the coronavirus has affected two of their latest releases, one of them ‘Emma’, an adaptation of a novel by Jane Austen, and the eternally damned ‘The new mutants’, which was delayed for the fifth time a few weeks ago. He has also worked with Edgar Wright (‘Baby Driver’) in ‘Last night in Soho’, which is now in post-production.
Hollywood in standby
The rest of Hollywood is standing. ‘Mission Impossible 7’ had to leave Italy, a country that has a great importance in the movie, so that it is difficult to change the location in these moments. ‘Matrix 4’ had finished filming in San Francisco and was going to start shooting in Berlin. ‘The Batman’ had nearly seven weeks filming in London. ‘Red Notice’, for his part, had been in production in Atlanta for two weeks. It is more than likely that these three major projects to suffer delays in their release dates original.

ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to chat with star Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Split, The New Mutants) about Focus Features’ Emma, the adaptation of the Jane Austen classic on misguided matchmaking in the 1800’s English countryside. You can check out the interview below and order your copy of the movie here!
Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse (Taylor-Joy) is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along.
In addition Taylor-Joy, the cast includes Bill Nighy (Their Finest), Miranda Hart (Spy), The Cure for Wellness‘ Mia Goth, The Crown‘s Josh O’Connor, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald‘s Callum Turner, Krypton‘s Rupert Graves, Game of Thrones‘ Gemma Whelan, In Darkness‘ Amber Anderson and Sex Education‘s Tanya Reynolds.
The Jane Austen novel was first published in 1815, a comedy of manners focusing on Emma Woodhouse, who can’t help herself from constantly meddling in the love affairs of others.
The film also marks the feature debut for director Autumn de Wilde, who is known primarily for her work in music videos for artists including Beck and Death Cab for Cutie. The Luminaries author Eleanor Catton wrote the script. Catton serves as the executive producer on the small screen adaptation of her award-winning novel.
Stepping into the shoes of Jane Austen’s timeless antiheroine Emma in a new screen adaptation, the actor speaks to us about why she’s never compromised for less.
Oscillating effortlessly between twisted gothic thrillers and refined period dramas, Anya Taylor-Joy has mapped out an unconventional career rooted in escapism. Now stepping into the shoes of Jane Austen’s timeless antiheroine Emma in a new screen adaptation, the actor speaks to us about why she’ s never compromised for less.
Within the first five minutes of meeting, Anya Taylor-Joy is excitedly telling me about the best first date she’s ever been on. “Our lunch turned into six, seven hours of us wandering around antique shops and just telling each other our entire life story.” She recalls the story animatedly, her stupendously large eyes trained on mine. “We fell in love! It was basically the best first date I’ve ever had.” I’m currently sat with the actress in the practically sub-zero temperatures of a studio’s storage room in the depths of south London. An eerie array of prop oddities including mannequin torsos and comically jumbo-sized clocks loom ominously in the shadows, as well as one boisterously orange vintage sofa – where eventually all her lithe, deer-like limbs fold into when we sit down for a chat. The “date” in question was her first ever work meeting with Autumn de Wilde, an esteemed fashion photographer and director who has just helmed the latest screen adaptation of Jane Austen’s iconic 19th-century set novel, Emma – in which Taylor-Joy stars in the titular role. It is a sprightly, humorous wedge of a film, offering up sheer screen escapism and swoon-worthy shows of romance — think strawberries and champagne, beguiling glances over group picnics, and petticoats abound — and boasting a number of fantastic performances from an ensemble cast made up of the crème de la crème of British talent, or as Taylor-Joy calls them, the “merry little gang” of Johnny Flynn, Mia Goth, Josh O’Connor, Callum Turner, Bill Nighy and Miranda Hart. What you see on screen is essentially what you get: the on-screen chemistry between everyone is real. Mia Goth is one of Taylor-Joy’s IRL best friends. And she snickers gleefully “it was so much fun to argue with Johnny Flynn,” the singer and actor who plays her bickering love interest. They’re all active on a group chat called ‘MA’ whose avatar is an emoji of the head exploding, where they “continually tell each other jokes and write poetry.” At its crux, Emma is about a spoilt “anti-heroine” who meddles in the lives of others around her, and plays matchmaker to less than favourable results for all those involved. “Emma is acting from a place of fear a lot of the time,” Taylor-Joy surmises. “A lot of her comments that come out are because she’s deeply lonely and bored, and she also doesn’t know any better. She’s grown up in a place of privilege where she believes that she’s truly being kind in trying to improve people, but I wanted people to understand where she was coming from when she does say something mean. I think that in a world that’s very big on cancel culture at the minute, it’s really nice to have a story on redemption, and by the end of the film Emma understands that morally she prefers to be around good people that treat each other kindly, rather than the people that are deceitful and happen to be of the right class.”
