At the end of 2020, we received a snippet of good news: A24 was planning an adaption of Ocean Vuong’s critically acclaimed debut novel, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous. We’ve gone several months without any update (which makes sense; I assume writing a script takes a very long time) but now our patience is being rewarded with this little teaser. The other day, Ocean Vuong shared a story to his Instagram, announcing that the script is done. (Sadly, I did not screenshot it in time. Luckily, Dr. Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai did!)

Hopefully we’ll see On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous on the big screen soon, and until then, feel free to leave your dream casting in the comments.
