And it alludes to this time and place we claim to not be in anymore, in terms of sexual politics. As a woman in general, and a woman in this industry, I’ve experienced some pretty wild behavior from the opposite sex. It’s a nod to that, but it’s also playful, and a really playful film in a lot of ways. Feigenbaum. That’s Little Saint James vibes. “Something,” says the plot description, “is a bit terrifying.” No kidding. Deadline reported today that Kravitz will make her directorial debut with this incredibly named genre thriller, co-written by her and E.T. The story evolved into something else, but the title wound up having multiple meanings. Regarding the title, Kravitz told Deadline:
“I started writing this story in 2017. The title was kind of a joke at first, this place where people would go, bring women, party, and hang out. In Pussy Island, Tatum will play tech mogul Slater King, who brings the yet-to-be-cast lead character, a “young, clever, Los Angeles cocktail waitress,” to the aforementioned private island, where the party vibes turn sinister.

Tags: People are evolving and changing, but there is still a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths from past behavior. It’s called Pussy Island. I like that the title leads with that and has some heavy meaning beneath it.”

It’s been a few years since we’ve had a live-action Channing Tatum performance, but Zoë Kravitz is seeing to it that he comes back in the best way possible: by sentencing him to Pussy Island. Already making bold directorial choices, we see.
