    According to its official synopsis, ‘Kinds of Kindness’ is a “triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.”

    The popular duo, Lanthimos and screenwriter Efthimis Filippou, will lead the project. Though it was initially titled ‘AND‘ while under production, the name was later changed. The filming took place in New Orleans in October 2022.

    The release of ‘Kinds of Kindness‘ teaser comes after Emma Stone’s recent win for Best Actress at the Academy Awards, marking her second Oscar win after ‘La La Land’. Stone is also reportedly in discussions to star in another one of Lanthimos’ upcoming remake of ‘Save the Green Planet!’ Though her role in the film has yet to be confirmed, Variety reports that she is likely to have a supporting role.

    Kinds of Kindness‘ is scheduled to hit theaters on June 21, 2024.
