Zoë Kravitz is to make her directorial debut with a new thriller film, Pussy Island, starring Channing Tatum.

According to Deadline, the new film follows Frida, a cocktail waitress trying to seduce tech mogul, Slater King (Tatum). Things start to fall apart after she is invited to the mogul’s private island, where there’s more going on than meets the eye.

Kravitz is best known for her performances in front of the camera in titles like, Mad Max, Big Little Lies, Fantastic Beasts and most recently, The Batman. This new project will be her first venture behind the camera.

Speaking to Deadline about the new film, Zoë Kravitz addressed the ‘provocative’ title.

“The title means a lot of things. I started writing this story in 2017.” She said. “The title was kind of a joke at first, this place where people would go, bring women, party and hang out. The story evolved into something else, but the title wound up having multiple meanings.”

“And it alludes to this time and place we claim to not be in anymore, in terms of sexual politics. People are evolving and changing but there is still a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths from past behaviour.”

“It’s a nod to that, but it’s also playful, and a really playful film in a lot of ways. I like that the title leads with that and has some heavy meaning beneath it.”
