Anya Taylor-Joy and Scott Frank reunite for ‘Laughter in the Dark’

VULTURE – The Queen’s Gambit co-creator Scott Frank and star Anya Taylor-Joy unexpectedly dominated the Netflix game this fall. Now, according to Frank, the pair is resetting the board for a much darker game, with an adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov’s 1932 novel Laughter in the Dark. Frank discussed their upcoming creative reunion on the Watch podcast over at the Ringer, calling the project “a valentine to movies. I’m going to do it as a film noir and a movie within a movie, and it’s a really nasty, wonderful, thriller.”

Initially released as an English translation under the name Camera Obscura, only for Nabokov to publish his own translation in 1938, Laughter in the Dark follows the story of Albert Albinus, a married middle-aged art critic, and Margot Peters, a 17-year-old aspiring actress with whom he is obsessed. After Albert’s wife learns of their affair and moves out, Margot enlists her former lover Axel Rex to help her financially (and psychologically) bleed Albert dry.

Bustle photoshoot

BUSTLE – In Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, Anya Taylor-Joy’s Beth doesn’t bother to pick up her own chess piece before capturing her opponent’s. She flicks her long fingers across the board, braggadociously ending each move before technically beginning it. Every stop of her chess clock, every topple of a fallen King is a tiny emotional crescendo. “One of my first thoughts was that I wanted Beth to handle the pieces in a way that, while still being aggressive, did feel uniquely feminine,” Taylor-Joy says of inhabiting the bellicose chess phenom at the center of the new limited series. Her chess coach immediately approved the choreography. “He was like, ‘Well, I’ve never seen a chess player do that, but I totally buy that she would.’”
