HN Entertainment has been able to exclusively confirm that the working title for Marvel Studios’ next big film The Eternals directed by Chloe Zhao will be simply Sack Lunch.
Hopefully, this isn’t referring to the catering on the film.
Working titles are mostly used only during productions and to throw locals off when they’re shooting exterior scenes. Sometimes they can have significance to the directors or the film but are mostly picked to sound obscure.
A couple of the previous working titles for MCU movies include Open World for Captain Marvel, Mary Lou for Avengers: Infinity War/Avengers: Endgame, Bosco for Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Blue Bayou for Black Widow.
The confirmed production team so far includes cinematographer Ben Davis (Captain Marvel, Guardians of The Galaxy) and Oscar-nominated production designer Eve Stewart (Cats, The Girl In The Spider’s Web). There is also an expectation that costume designer Alexandra Byrne (The Avengers, Thor, Doctor Strange, Guardians of The Galaxy) will be working on the film as well.
HN previously confirmed that filming would be primarily taking place at Pinewood Studios UK, the exact stage location that is currently being used for Cate Shortland’s Black Widow movie.
Reportedly, the cast will consist of Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, and South Korean actor Dong-seok Ma.
Production is expected to kick-off this September in the United Kingdom.
Marvel Studios hasn’t officially announced the project but there is a logical assumption that it will land a release date of November 6th, 2020.
