There’s a lot of things we are waiting for rn: the end of this never-ending pandemic, Euphoria S2 and the return of Nicholas Braun. Luckily, the universe is granting one of our wishes and that is Braun’s return to the screen. Starring in the live-action adaptation of Kristen Roupenian’s viral short story from the New Yorker, Cat Person is set to explore a young college student named Margot who enters a brief and uncomfortable relationship with an older man who frequents the cinema where she works.
Labelled as a psychological thriller, Succession’s Cousin Greg and Coda’s Emilia Jones are set to star in the roles, with The Flight Attendant director Susanna Fogel set to direct the project.
“Using Kristen’s excruciatingly well-observed short story about the horrors of dating as the jumping off point for an actual genre film, Cat Person will explore the hellscape of modern romance,” says Fogel in an interview with Deadline. “And the idea that we have all been the villain in someone else’s story, and the victim in others.”
