The most awaited movie of this year, Heart of Stone is finally announced and is set to be streamed on Netflix. The actors in the movie seemed to be quite promising as the trailer came out and fans were teased with the characters and storyline. This movie is long awaited by Bollywood fans since the popular actress Alia Bhatt is debuting in the action-packed Hollywood movie alongside Jamie Donan and wonder woman Gal Gadot.
Why did Heart of Stone take so long to release?
Heart of Stone was long awaited in 2022 as the production ended in July 2022. The reason for the delay is not known but what fans and makers say is that a lot of action sequences were to be done, so needed modification and Alia Bhatt got married in the mid of the shooting schedule. The shooting was done in various locations in Iceland, Italy, London, and many other places. Due to various location changes, the shoot took more time than was thought of.
There were rumors that Alia was pregnant by the time Heart of Stone was shot. So could be one of the reasons the crew had to halt the shoot for safety reasons.
Director of Heart of Stone wants a She-Spy Franchise
The director of the movie Tom Harper told Entertainment Weekly about his plan to make a She-oriented spy franchise just like James Bond. He wanted to create a different side to the spy genre which included ladies and some action. He wanted to take Gal Gadot and desired to make this absolutely women-orientated spy universe. He wishes to break the stereotypical franchise of male-oriented spy movies and center it around women who are equally capable of doing action.
He said- “There were a couple of things that immediately jumped out at me, the first was that it was an original movie in a genre that is full of great franchises, but things that have been around for a long time — the Mission: Impossibles or the Bonds or the Bournes. The thing that Gal and [producers at] Skydance spoke about a lot was they wanted Rachel to be a character that wasn’t just a female actress playing a sort of male character, but a woman at the heart of it who was responding differently.”
The movie is coming on August 11, 2023.
