Daniel Craig lusts after Drew Starkey in upcoming film, “Queer”

“The leads in Luca Guadagnino adaptation of William S. Burroughs "Queer" cast has been solidified, writes Variety. Joining Daniel Craig is "Outer Banks" star Drew Starkey, who plays as a younger man with whom he becomes madly infatuated.

"The boldly ambitious indie film is set to start shooting this month at Rome's refurbished Cinecittà Studios where the Mexico City-set movie will be filmed in its entirety," says Variety.”

As for Daniel Craig, well - bi people tend to marry each other. But haven't heard anything concrete about him. However, men keep it under wraps more than women anyway.

Do people even watch Luca Guadagnino’s films? There seem to be so many of them.

I love this novel and have for decades. Would never have imagined Daniel Craig as Lee. I’d be more interested in Tilda Swinton playing it.

Lee is Burroughs himself and, in the novel, his not free of his addiction. Also, Cronenberg used a lot of the material in Queer already when he filmed Naked Lunch.

This project seems misguided. I’d rather see Andrew Scott do it in like 10 years. But I suppose this will disappear rather quickly. It would take a very skilled screenwriter to adapt this to any medium, let alone a film (it’s more suited to the stage, if anything), and I don’t think they have one.

This will probably debut at a festival, get terrible reviews and disappear like that bizarre film, Kings, that Craig did with Halle Berry. I don’t think he’s very good at selecting scripts, obviously after filming all of that Bond tripe.

r46 Another simpleton who doesn't understand the concept of a level playing field. Go ahead, list the number of gay actors who got an Oscar for their "courageous portrayal of a straight person", the way straight actors seemingly get them automatically.

by Anonymousreply 49July 22, 2023 9:47 AM

R49 I don't know, genius. Since we don't really know who's gay and who isn't. A lot of the actors living a straight life publicly, could be closeted gays/bisexuals that have won Oscars. Also, who gives a fuck about Oscars? Is that how you measure quality of art? By how many mainstream awards it has won?

And how exactly would a process of hiring only gay actors in gay roles go? Enlighten us.

Would directors or casting directors ask every actor that came to audition personal stuff about their lives, like what is their sexuality, who they share their bed with, do they have experience with the same sex? Cause that totally sounds normal, not creepy and invasive at all. Or would they hire only publicly openly gay actors. A few good ones that there are. So you would have a few of the same actors in every single gay role there is. And most of them are terrible actors. But in your opinion that is a better solution than hiring a good actor, no matter their sexuality, who will ACT as a gay person, since acting (pretending) is their job.

Could bi men married to women get these acting gigs? William S. Burroughs was after all, married to a woman. Should dyslexic characters only be portrayed by dyslexic actors? Autistic by autistic ones? Depressed by depressed one. Geniuses by other geniuses? So no portrayal of Einstein since, I doubt, any actor has an IQ of 160.

Lastly and most importantly, you don't think there would be a backlash among conservatives/homophobes if any gay actor would be cast in a straight role? Your whole woke thing would eventually only hurt gay actors and gay community as a whole

TBH, r28, I don't think Burroughs "translates" at all to film (or theatre, or any medium other than the written word), mainly because most of his work is not based on traditional concepts of chronological narrative or character development, which traditional, nonexperimental cinema thrives on. Cronenberg's _Naked Lunch_ was an awful mess because it was Cronenberg's own reading/interpretation/filtering of the paranoid underworld that Burroughs created through the manipulation of language through its written medium and played as much with established ideas of what a novel could and couldn't do. I can't imagine that Guadagnino, much as I like his films, is going to come up with anything particularly good based on _Queer_.
