The initial trailer for ‘Monkey Man’ has burst onto the scene, making a compelling case for Dev Patel to shed his underrated status in Hollywood. Patel’s versatility shines through as he effortlessly transitions from rom-coms to heart-pounding action films.

Since his breakout role as Jamal Malik in 2008’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire,’ Patel has consistently delivered noteworthy performances, earning a BAFTA nomination for Best Actor. His accolades include a BAFTA win for ‘Lion’ (2016) and an Oscar nomination. Recently, Patel captivated audiences with his portrayal of Ser Gawain in ‘The Green Knight,’ a film hailed as one of the finest adaptations of medieval poems and Arthurian cycles.

However, ‘Monkey Man’ appears to mark a pivotal moment in Patel’s career, given the enthusiastic online response to the trailer. The film is a true labor of love for Patel, serving as his directorial debut. Collaborating with Paul Angunawela and John Collee on the screenplay, Patel is deeply involved in shaping the narrative.

Dev Patel takes up two Roles for his Upcoming Film

Notably, Dev Patel assumes the role of producer, sharing this responsibility with acclaimed filmmaker Jordan Peele, who acquired ‘Monkey Man’ from Netflix, the original rights holder. This strategic move ensures that audiences will experience ‘Monkey Man’ on the big screen rather than through a streaming platform.

In essence, ‘Monkey Man’ emerges as a testament to Patel’s multifaceted talents, signaling a new phase in his career that transcends genres and showcases his prowess as both an actor and a filmmaker.
