The masterful TV universes Fleabag and Normal People have crossed paths time and time again. Andrew Scott’s Hot Priest listened to Connell (Paul Mescal) and Marianne’s (Daisy Edgar-Jones) confessions; Paul Mescal starred in a music video directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge; and today, one more collaboration hits the list. Mescal and Scott are teaming up for a movie called Extreme Hotness.
Not really, though that’s what we’d expect a movie to be titled, coming from the two of them. The film they’re actually working on, from Weekend director Andrew Haigh, is called Strangers. Scott and Mescal—who seem to be fast friends, thanks to their bevy of collabs—will lead the project, which is loosely based on the ghost story of the same name written by Taichi Yamada.
While some other details have been revealed—Claire Foy and Jamie Bell are also tapping in for the project, it follows ghost parents—after the news broke, the internet exploded in questions. (And celebrations, of course, too.) The main inquiry: Will Mescal and Scott fall in love in the film?
