Stone and Lanthimos are coming off the heels of "Poor Things," a film that landed four Oscars, including one for Stone who took home Best Actress at the 2024 Academy Awards.

More recently, the star-studded trio of Stone, Plemons and Lanthimos worked together on "Kinds of Kindness" which is slated for a June 2024 release date. "Bugonia" is based off "Save the Green Planet!," a 2003 South Korean sci-fi comedy film.
