Jacob Elordi and Diego Calva set to play lovers in new film, with “pretty hot scenes”

Diego Calva and Jacob Elordi are set to play lovers in a new film and it seems there are some “pretty hot scenes” coming up, as revealed by the Mexican actor himself. The pair will be starring in Daniel Minahan’s adaptation of ‘On Swift Horses,’ and Diego recently talked to Variety about his experience working with the ‘Euphoria’ star.

“It was so cool to work with him. He’s obsessed with photography, he’s obsessed with old plays,” Diego said about Jacob. “He loves Tennessee Williams, he loves Chekhov. He’s not the guy you maybe think he is. He’s such a cool actor. He’s just amazing. I feel very proud.”

He also shared some details about the upcoming film, which is based on the novel by Shannon Pufahl, and tells the story of a couple who find themselves in a love triangle after the Korean War. “I don’t know if I can say this but we are going to have pretty hot scenes in this movie…You have to wait. But I think it will be a pretty cool movie.”

Diego went on to say that he feels very proud, as this is his “second lead character in an American movie.” Daisy Edgar-Jones and Sasha Calle will also be starring on the project, helmed by the director of ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘House of Cards,’ ‘Six Feet Under,’ among others.

The Mexican star shared his excitement to be making his dreams come true in Hollywood. “I have one foot in Hollywood right now, and I was invited to this beautiful Hollywood party,” he recently said to IndieWire. “I plan to stay and keep working with people that I admire, that I dreamt to work with when I was a little kid. But at the same time, I want to try to build a career back in Latin America too, and to go to Mexico and tell stories that matter to me in a lot of ways.”

Jacob Elordi and Barry Keoghan lead Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman follow-up, Saltburn

Details for the Promising Young Woman director’s second feature film are being kept under wraps, with Rosamund Pike and Carey Mulligan rounding off the stellar cast

Jacob Elordi’s about to have a fine old time in Hollywood. Not only is down to star as Elvis Presley in Priscilla, Sofia Coppola’s well-timed biography of the rock n’ roll king’s beleaguered partner, he’ll also feature opposite Barry Keoghan in Emerald Fennell’s hotly awaited Promising Young Woman follow-up, Saltburn. The two boys, Keoghan on his own hot streak in the wake of an Oscar nomination for Martin McDonagh’s Banshees of Inisherin, will be joined by Rosamund Pike, Promising lead Carey Mulligan and Richard E. Grant in a story being kept closely under wraps.

So what do we know? Well, it seems as though Fennell is mining from personal experience in Saltburn, described by Deadline as being about a “grand, aristocratic English family,” while other sources have called it a “tale of obsession.”

Who’ll obsess over who is yet to be established, but one should think a bonafide heartthrob like Elordi would be the object of anyone’s eye. It’s thematic territory not so distant from Fennell’s debut, a #MeToo story with its barrel pointed firmly at the male gaze. Then, of course, the multi-hyphenate Fennell had her own time in The Crown, portraying Camilla Parker Bowles — seldom can a character be more upper-class.

Keoghan, a perennial supporting player, has himself been in the ascendancy over recent years, starring as The Joker in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, and as part of the weighty ensemble in Chloe Zhao’s Marvel flick Eternals. He’s not the favourite to win the Oscar he’s nominated for — Ke Huy Quan, on the Best Supporting Actor list for his resurgent part in Everything Everywhere All at Once, has cleaned up the awards season so far — but it’ll certainly help for the Saltburn posters.

Carey Mulligan is the only holdover from Promising Young Woman announced so far, with that Fennell collaboration seeing her pick up a swathe of awards nominations for her performance. Either way, with an ensemble of heavyweights following up one of the more eye-catching — if divisive — debuts of the past half-decade, we’re only expecting great things.

There’s no release date for Saltburn yet, but the film went into production midway through 2022, which would tee it up nicely for a release later this year, likely following a glamourous premiere at one of the big film festivals. Cannes, anyone?

Jacob Elordi To Co-Star With Rosamund Pike In Emerald Fennell’s ‘Saltburn’ For MRC Film And LuckyChap: Hot Cannes Market Package

Academy Award-winning writer and director Emerald Fennell has lined up the cast for her next film, Saltburn, with Jacob Elordi (Euphoria) and Barry Keoghan (The Batman) attached to star in the project from MRC Film. Deadline recently broke that Rosamund Pike also will co-star with principal photography set to begin this summer in the UK. The pic will be produced by Fennell and LuckyChap Entertainment’s Josey McNamara, Tom Ackerley and Margot Robbie.

Described as a story of obsession, other plot details are being kept under wraps. MRC will take the package to the Cannes market next week, and it is expected to be one of the hotter properties on the market. The film is Fennell’s follow-up to Promising Young Woman, which was nominated for several Oscars and won Best Original Screenplay for Fennell.

Saltburn will mark Elordi’s most high-profile feature film role following his breakout performance as Nate on the massive HBO hit series Euphoria. He recently was seen in Adrian Lyne’s feature Deep Water, opposite Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas. Up next, Elordi stars opposite Zachary Quinto in the indie He Went That Way.

Keoghan most recently joined the DC Universe as The Joker in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, opposite Robert Pattinson. He also can be seen in Marvel’s new franchise Eternals, directed by Chloe Zhao. He appears next in Martin McDonaugh’s The Banshees of Inisherin, also starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.

Keoghan is represented by Management 360, WME, B-Side Management, & Sloane Offer Weber and Dern. Elordi is repped by Gersh, Nick Gluyas Management and Goodman Genow Schenkman. Pike is represented by United Agents in the UK and CAA and Magnolia Entertainment in the U.S.. Fennell is represented by UTA, United Agents, Management 360 and Hansen Jacobson Teller.

Jacob Elordi is reportedly being considered to play James Bond next.

Jacob Elordi, Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill and Idris Elba are reportedly being considered to play James Bond next.

Fans might be anxious to find out just which star will be the next James Bond following Daniel Craig‘s end as the MI-6 agent. However, according to producer Barbara Broccoli, they’ll be waiting quite a while.

While speaking to Variety, Barbara opened up about why it will take more than just a few weeks or months to decide on who will take up the mantle. “It’s a big decision,” she shared of the casting process. “It’s not just casting a role. It’s about a whole rethink about where we’re going.”
