Here’s a first look at Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Civil War) and Denise Gough (Colette) in Monday, the next feature by Greek director Argyris Papadimitropoulos (Suntan). Principal photography recently wrapped on the two-hander co-written by Papadimitropoulos and Rob Hayes.
Monday follows the story of Mickey (Stan) and Chloe (Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, who meet in the heat of summer one whirlwind weekend. When Chloe’s time in Greece is drawing to a close, she decides to give up her high-flying job back home and explore whether one weekend’s passion can stand the reality of the inevitable Monday.
Said Papadimitropoulos, “The story of Mickey and Chloe is an unflinching and fun take on the romantic relationship of two people, who crave each other but are also hindered by the baggage each brings to the table. Sebastian and Denise were perfect for the roles, they embraced Athens like locals and inhabited Mickey and Chloe with passion and fearlessness. Monday is both a celebration of bigger-than-life romances, and a love letter to my city.”
Producers are Christos V. Konstantakopoulos (Before Midnight), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Loving), Damian Jones (The Iron Lady), and Deanna Barillari (The Amaranth), with Fred Berger (La La Land) as executive producer and finance provided by Faliro House.
