Just a couple of months ago, the world was taken over by Barry Keoghan and Jacob Elordi’s chemistry in Saltburn. While the story focused more on the borderline erotic friendship between their characters, the stars ended up bringing that same energy to the promotions. While some people were taken aback by what the film had in store, most of the world loved Keoghan’s Oscar-worthy performance.

With the film having been out for only two months, it makes sense that fans are not ready to move on from it just yet. However, with Koeghan teaming up with Jenna Ortega and The Weeknd for another project, it will not be too long before fans of the actor get to see him back on the big screen once again.
