The Albanain-British singer, Dua Lipa, has risen to a lot of fame in the past few years, after the huge success of her song “New Rules”. Not only that, but over the years, she has given so many hit songs, and has been nominated in the Grammys several times.
Last year, in 2020, Lipa released her second album “Future Nostalgia”, which was highly praised and was one of the best albums of the year. It was also nominated for six Grammy Awards and won the award of Best Pop/Vocal album. Besides this, her song “Don’t Start Now” was also nominated for Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
After all the success in the music industry, Dua Lipa is all set to make her acting debut with a new spy movie, directed by Matthew Vaughn. The movie is titled as “Argylle”, which will be based on the unpublished novel of the same name by author Ellie Conway. Not only Dua, but the movie will have an ensemble cast.
Lipa will star in the movie along with Superman and The Witcher fame Henry Cavill, Jojo Rabbit fame Sam Rockwell, Jurassic World fame Bryce Dallas Howard, Saving Private Ryan fame Bryan Cranston, Schitt’s Creek fame Catherine O’Hara, WWE star John Cena, and Django Unchained fame Samuel L. Jackson.
Not only acting, but it is said that Lipa will also be singing for the movie, as her singing talent definitely should not be wasted.
Ellie Conway’s novel “Argylle” is said to be about the world’s greatest spy, and he will be following a lot of globe-trotting adventures. The novel is set to be released in 2022 and the new movie based on this novel will start the shooting in August 2021.
With the launch of Argylle, a new spy-based franchise will start that is going to compete against James Bond movies and Mission: Impossible series. Although the principal photography of the movie is still in the development phase, it is said that three movies for Argylle has already been planned so far, and more movies may follow in the future.
Matthew Vaughn is known for directing and producing movies like X-Men movies and The Kingsman movies. The third movie of The Kingsman movie is all set to be released on December 22, 2021, which was supposed to be released in November 2019, but was pushed back to February 14, 2020, and then to September 18 2020, which was also shifted due to COVID-19 pandemic.
About the movie, Vaughn said, “When I read this early draft manuscript, I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the 50s. This is going to reinvent the spy genre.” It will be produced through his own production company, Marv.
Zygi Kamasa, the CEO of Marv said, “We are delighted that we will be starting our fourth, and by far the biggest, feature film production since the start of the global pandemic. It demonstrates both our desire to scale up our production activity and our ambition to continue to launch new franchises beyond the Kingsman series of films.”
Henry Cavil shared a poster of the movie on his Instagram writing:
All other cast members like Dua Lipa, Samuel L Jackson, John Cena, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, and also the official page of Marv movie shared the same picture with the same caption. It looks like they really don’t want to say too many things.
Just the color of the background in each poster is different.
The poster that Dua Lipa shared has a pink background, and the one shared by Henry Cavill has a blue background. The one shared by Samuel L Jackson has purple, John Cena has green, Bryce Dallas Howard has Orange, and Bryan Cranston has red. And in the official poster shared by Marv Films, the background keeps changing. This really looks like some kind of significance, but we will see it when the movie comes out.
