Still in the making, Challengers will bring together a stellar cast, including Zendaya, Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist, and have Jonathan Anderson as costume designer
Calling all Guadagnino’s enthusiasts: the wait is over. The beloved Italian director has finally started shooting a new film and what we know about it is enough to make us tremble with excitement.
Challengers follows tennis coach Tashi, whose life goal has been to shape her husband, Art, into the perfect champion player. Still, when Art begins to lose his touch for the game, he’s transferred to a lower league. Here, as luck would have it, he has to play against Patrick, Tashi’s old flame and their teenage best friend. Needless to say, the incident is enough to ignite an unpredictable and complicated love triangle that will make the plot extra spicy, so to speak.
Currently filming in Boston, Guadagnino’s in-the-making project follows his horror-romance set in the American south Bones & All, which stars Call Me By Your Name idol Timothée Chalamet and is set for release later this year.
