5. The French Dispatch (2020)
‘The French Dispatch’ is yet another movie from the aesthetically sound Wes Anderson. Despite having some emotionally and visually rich films under his belt, Anderson is always looking for the next best story to portray the human condition, in all its postmodern melancholy and complexity. Despite this, his upcoming film is set somewhat in the past.
We follow the story of journalists in 20th century France, as they are stationed there with an American paper. The movie is intended as a love letter to journalists and sees their dreams and ambitions being realized. Now, when it comes to Anderson’s projects, the cast is always stellar. Thus, apart from Moss, we have the likes of Timothee Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan on board. Thus, the acting is expected to be top-notch.
More details about the project are being kept under wraps right now, so as to maximize impact at the time of release. ‘The French Dispatch’ will release in 2020, but no date has been set yet.
4. The Handmaid’s Tale (2017-)
‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘ is a dystopian drama on Hulu. It is based on Margaret Atwood’s book of the same name. The plot follows a dystopian society post a second Civil War, where women are reduced to childbearing services and called Handmaids. The show aired Season 3 on June 5, 2019.
The story follows Offred, who used to have a happy family life and a job before the dystopia kicked in. Now she is reduced to bearing children and the show merely exaggerates to show how dangerous the objectification of women can be and is an extreme mirror of the expectations that society has of the women. Elisabeth Moss plays the role of Offred, the protagonist, and her strong feminist stances at moments of the show make it a powerful and memorable performance. A new season is expected in 2020.
3. Next Goal Wins (TBA)
Taika Waititi is quickly making a name for himself in Hollywood. He started off with a quirky vision, which was immediately evident to anyone who has seen ‘What We Do in the Shadows‘. However, from the time he started making mainstream Hollywood movies, he has only improved. It is needless to say that Marvel fans swear by his vision since he has managed to make the best Thor movie yet. He followed this up with a genuinely nice take on Nazism and the politics of hatred in ‘Jojo Rabbit‘. Therefore, this comical take on a sports movie is highly anticipated.
Waititi helms this adaptation of the 2014 British soccer documentary, which is based on a man who does not lose hope in a team. We follow the story of Thomas Rongen, the Dutch coach, who tries to turn the American Samoa soccer team from perennial losers to winners. Sports itself is more than just the game being played out. It is an emotion and a chronicling of a journey that results in success or failure. Waititi will try to capture this in his movie, where Moss will be sure to deliver a memorable role.
2. Call Jane (TBA)
‘Call Jane’ is a period drama that is in pre-production stages and as such does not have a release date yet. The film is set in Chicago in the 1960s and is based on a group of women, calling themselves the Jane Collective. They run an underground network offering the service of secret and safe abortions for women before the landmark Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortions.
The cast is impressive and includes actors like Susan Sarandon. However, Elisabeth Moss plays a pivotal role in the film as Joy, a woman who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant and turns to this group for help.

In such a setting, a father goes to all lengths to try and protect his daughter. The film has been directed and written by Casey Affleck and stars himself as the protagonist.
