ONTD Sequel: Current and Upcoming Dev Patel Roles

Yes, it's the follow-up post you never asked for to a post you don't even remember reading! Beneath the cut are four films; two of which you've surely already heard me complaining about not having seen and two others that you may know nothing about. Either way, I invite you into this sloppy sophomore slump of a post to feast your eyes on Dev's upcoming work!

A modern take on Charles Dickens's classic tale of a young orphan who is able to triumph over many obstacles.

This film will be available in the UK for download and on DVD/Bluray starting this week, here is the director's twitter and a small sample of the cast Dev not included reading a passage from the Dickens book.

A fantasy re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

This epic film was originally scheduled to be released May 29th in the States but A24 now has it simply listed as 2020(TBD), whatever that means...

[A Preview In Gif Form]

It was announced that Dev Patel would be taking the lead role in an adapted portrayal of the book Flash Crash: A Trading Savant, a Global Manhunt, and the Most Mysterious Market Crash in History by Liam Vaughan along with being one of the film's executive producers: “Flash Crash” tells the story of Navinder Singh Sarao, an outsider who found a way to beat the stock market and made millions working from a bedroom in his parents’ small suburban home on the outskirts of London.

Perhaps most exciting, to me at least, is the news of Dev Patel's directorial debut on a script he co-wrote with Paul Angunawela and John Collee: “Monkey Man” centers on the Kid (Patel), who emerges from prison to grapple with a world marred by, in the words of the logline, “corporate greed and eroding spiritual values.” The release announcing the project was slim on plot details beyond saying that the film is set in modern-day India, but also deals with mythology.

Before the news of how serious the pandemic became, Dev was supposedly in Mumbai to look for shooting locations.

Thank you for reading! And if you got to the end of this post, either by scrolling, skimming, or just jumping over all this info, here's a little something to brighten your day:
