3. Proxima (2019)
‘Proxima’ is an action-drama film directed by Alice Winocour. It follows Sarah, an astronaut with the European Space Agency who is preparing to go on a one-year mission to the International Space Station but must first face an intense training and also cope with the impending separation from her seven-year-old daughter.
Green can be seen playing the lead character of Sarah in the movie. The movie will surely be an emotional one according to the premise. It also stars Matt Dillon and Lars Eidinger. The movie made its debut at TIFF 2019 and is slated for theatrical release in France on November 27, 2019.
Green’s character embodies the difficulties that women face in various fields, with her having to deal with her family life as well as the professional sphere. The fact that she is belittled by men, who tend to be dismissive of her abilities causes the character great pain. It is a nuanced role, which we are sure the talented actress will portray brilliantly.

2. The Luminaries (TBA)
Eva Green is all set to appear in a television show again, following her success in ‘Penny Dreadful’. The upcoming drama series, ‘The Luminaries’ is a period piece as well, set in the 1860s, during the gold rush in New Zealand. The series is a tale of love, revenge, and murder as many men and women sailed to the coasts of New Zealand to make their fortunes.
The story is about a determined young woman who goes to New Zealand and ends up meeting a man. The encounter sets off a kind of magic that neither of them can explain, as they begin to fall in love in a strange land. However, their fortunes manage to drive them apart, and bring them together, coincidentally. The star crossed lovers ultimately begin to wonder if they make their fortunes or if their fortunes make them. They also have to ask themselves if they are precious enough to each other, more than the quest for gold.
The show’s premise seems fascinating and Green is on board to play the part of Lydia Wells. The show is an adaptation of the 2013 Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name, that has been written by Eleanor Catton. Along with a talented cast, the series is bound to be a success, and we cannot wait to see how Green enchants us with her performance once again.

1. A Patriot (TBA)
‘A Patriot’ is an upcoming sci-fi thriller that is still in its nascent stages. The movie comes at a pertinent time when questioning the state is confused with being unpatriotic towards it. With voices of dissent being given this tag, the world over, by individuals who would rather turn a blind eye till they are themselves affected, ‘A Patriot’ becomes another wonderful example where science fiction is used to point out a flaw in society as a whole.
The premise is set in the near future where an authoritarian state has walled itself away from the world ravaged by climate change and a war over resources. A loyal government employee, tasked with maintaining the purity of the population, goes about her job. However, she stumbles upon some truth that makes her question her allegiance to the government and makes her ask questions about the authoritative nature of the state itself.
Eva Green is the protagonist whose birth of criticality drives the plot forward. The premise is thrilling and there are going to be twists and turns, which will keep viewers hooked. We expect to see Green outshine herself in the role of Kate Jones, the Border Corp Captain.
‘Dumbo’ is the live-action remake of the 1941 film of the same name and has been directed by Tim Burton. It follows a young elephant whose oversized ears enable him to fly.
