A cinematographic universe
So far, Lily Rose-Depp and The Weeknd, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, are the only two actors to have been announced – and there is every reason to believe that they themselves will play the pop singer and owner of club.
Known for his hits Can’t Feel My Face, I Feel it Coming Where Blinding Lights, The Weeknd designed the clips for his latest album After Hours like a long movie. We follow the nocturnal wanderings of a character that he has also played on stage for more than a year. The Canadian singer also appeared briefly in the Netflix thriller, Uncut Gems (2019) and in the series American Dad Last year.
