Previously titled And, Kinds of Kindness will be a Poor Things reunion in its own right. Alongside Stone, actors Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley, who have appeared as Dr Godwin 'God' Baxter and Felicity in the acclaimed 2023 movie, will star in Lanthimos's upcoming film in undisclosed roles.

Cast for the anthology movie is rounded out by Fargo's Jesse Plemons, The Menu's Hong Chau, Conversations with Friends' Joe Alwyn, Elemental's Mamoudou Athie and Euphoria's Hunter Schafer.

Lanthimos co-wrote the script with his frequent collaborator Efthimis Filippou, with whom he co-penned the scripts of Dogtooth, Alps, The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
