A First Look at Sebastian Stan’s Romance Drama Monday
The first photo has been released for Sebastian Stan’s upcoming romantic dramaMonday, giving us our first look at Stan (The Martian, Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Denise Gough’s characters Mickey and Chloe as they share a kiss. It has also been revealed that principal photography has officially wrapped up in Greece. Check out the full photo below!
Monday is described as a classy-looking film that will focus on Chloe and Mickey, two self-destructive Americans, living across Athens and the Greek islands who will be involved in an intense romance. When Chloe’s time in Greece is drawing to a close, she decides to give up her high-flying job back home and explore whether one weekend’s passion can stand the reality of the inevitable Monday.
The film will be directed by Greek director Argyris Papadimitropoulos (Suntan). The script is co-written by screenwriter-playwright Rob Hayes (This Will End Badly) and Papadimitropoulos.
“The story of Mickey and Chloe is an unflinching and fun take on the romantic relationship of two people, who crave each other but are also hindered by the baggage each brings to the table. Sebastian and Denise were perfect for the roles, they embraced Athens like locals and inhabited Mickey and Chloe with passion and fearlessness. Monday is both a celebration of bigger-than-life romances, and a love letter to my city.” Papadimitropoulos said in an interview with Deadline.
Monday is produced by Christos V. Konstantakopoulos (Before Midnight), Damian Jones (Iron Lady), and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Loving). La La Land‘s producer Fred Berger will be the film’s executive producer. Protagonist Pictures will handle the film’s international sales while Faliro House and its partners will be the ones financing the feature.
