Julia O’Hara Stiles, or Julia Stiles, is an American actress. Stiles, who was born and raised in New York City, got into acting at the age of 11. She made her debut as Erica Dansby in the television series ‘Ghostwriter’. Julia Stiles’ first film role was in ‘I Love You, I Love You Not’. Stiles went on to have minor roles in films like ‘The Devil’s Own’ and M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Wide Awake’. She followed this up by playing the lead in a thriller titled ‘Wicked’. In the movie, she plays the role of a teenage daughter who murdered her mother in order to have her father all to herself.
Julia Stiles went on to star alongside Heath Ledger in ’10 Things I Hate About You’, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. Her performance was critically praised. However, her very next performance in ‘Down to You’ was not too well received. Not one to give up, Stiles appeared in two other adaptations of Shakespeare including ‘Hamlet’ and ‘O’, a modern-day retelling of ‘Othello’. Though all these roles played a crucial part in building Stiles’ career, most of us know her from the ‘Bourne‘ series where she plays the role of a Treadstone operative. Over the films, her role was largely expanded. In between the ‘Bourne’ movies, she appeared in films like ‘The Mona Lisa Smile’ and a remake of ‘The Omen’, alongside Liev Schreiber.
Apart from films, Stiles is known for her appearance in television shows, like ‘Dexter‘. The series follows a blood splatter analyst working for Miami Metro police, who is also a serial killer with a moral code. Stiles appears in one of the seasons as Lumen Pierce, a girl who teams up with Dexter to take down a dangerous sex ring. Some of her other appearances have been in ‘Blue’, a web series, and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, which won her a nomination for the Screen Actors Guild Award. Considering that she has received high praise for her acting skills and likes to keep herself busy, you must be wondering what is the next Julia Stiles movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Julia Stiles films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Julia Stiles movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
2. Hustlers (2019)
‘Hustlers’ is an upcoming comedy-crime drama that is set to release on September 13, 2019. It tells the story of a group of strippers who come together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. Operating out of New York, the strippers are led by a single mother who harbors ambitions of a better life. When the financial crisis in the late 2000s causes the sex industry to bottom out, the employees of the strip club decide to embezzle money from the stock traders and CEOs who visit their clubs.
The movie is based on a New York magazine article by Jessica Pressler titled, ‘The Hustlers at Scores’. While these women carry out their schemes to lie, cheat and hustle, a journalist interviews one of the ringleaders to try and figure out where the operation went wrong. Julia Stiles appears in the role of Elizabeth, the journalist who is trying to write an article describing the scam.
