Let's take a minute to break that down: Sergei Polunin, the former Royal Ballet principal whose performance in that Hozier video earned him the true love of 16,885,063 (and counting) hearts, is going to be in a ballet movie. A ballet SPY movie. A ballet spy movie ALSO STARRING JENNIFER LAWRENCE.
This screenshot from "Take Me to Church" perfectly encapsulates our feelings about that news.
Do we know a whole lot more about Red Sparrow? Not really. Apparently it's set in modern-day Russia, and involves a young dancer (presumably J. Law) recruited against her will to operate against a CIA officer (presumably Joel Edgerton, the other big Hollywood name involved in the project). And, at some point, we will see Polunin. Hopefully Polunin dancing. Hopefully Polunin dancing with Lawrence.
Of course, this isn't Polunin's first big-screen exposure. The documentary Dancer, following his extraordinary rise-and-fall-and-rise-again career, came out earlier this year. And it sounds like he's also scored a role in another starry Hollywood project, the upcoming Murder on the Orient Express.
If Polunin's even a tenth as talented an actor as he is a dancer, this is going to be major. Need a new happy mantra to chant when you're feeling stressed? Try "Oscar winner Sergei Polunin." Should do the trick!
