MGM has announced that Luca Guadagnino’s forthcoming coming-of-age romance-horror Bones and All will officially be making its world premiere at this year’s Venice Film Festival in September. This will then be followed by its theatrical release on November 23.
The announcement also comes with the release of three official Bones and All photos, which you can check out below, featuring a new look at leading stars Taylor Russell and Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet.
Based on Camille DeAngelis’ 2015 novel, Bones and All is being described as a coming-of-age romantic horror story centering around a young woman’s journey across the country in hopes of finding her father, who’s the only one that can answer why she has the urge to kill and eat the people she loves.
“The film will center around a story of first love between Maren (Russell), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Chalamet), an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey that takes them through the back roads, hidden passages and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America,” reads the synopsis. “But despite their best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying pasts and to a final stand that will determine whether their love can survive their otherness.”
Additional cast includes Mark Rylance, Michael Stulhbarg, Chloe Sevigny, Francesca Scorsese, Jessica Harper, André Holland, and Halloween director David Gordon Green.
Bones and All is directed and produced by Luca Guadagnino from a screenplay adapted by Dave Kajganich. It is executive produced by Giovanni Corrado and Raffaella Viscardi. Producers are Kajganich, Theresa Park, Marco Morabito, Francesco Melzi d’Eril and Gabriele Moratti, Lorenzo Mieli, and Peter Spears.
This project is a production by A Frenesy Film Company and Per Capita Productions, with Italian companies The Apartment Pictures, Enzio Ricci’s 3 Marys, Memo, Tender Stories, Adler, Elafood, Elafilm, Manila, Serfis and Wise financing the film.
