There’s an Enigma Shrouded Around This Film

As an avid fan of spy movies and TV shows like “Tehran” and “Slow Horses” on Apple TV+, I was thrilled to learn that Apple had acquired the rights to produce “Argylle,” a star-studded spy movie. After more than a year of anticipation, Apple has finally announced that “Argylle” will hit theaters on February 2, 2024, before becoming available for streaming worldwide on Apple TV+.

One of the reasons why this movie has generated so much buzz is its impressive cast, which includes pop superstar Dua Lipa and “The Witcher’s” Henry Cavill. Other notable actors in the film include Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena, and Samuel L. Jackson. The plot revolves around a novelist who was once a superspy but now suffers from amnesia. However, there’s a mysterious aspect to this movie and its source material that adds to the intrigue.

Argylle: The Enigma of Apple TV+

What makes “Argylle” so intriguing is the peculiar circumstances surrounding its source material. Apple paid a significant sum of money to adapt a novel written by a first-time author named Elly Conway, who has a limited online presence. Conway only has an empty Instagram account with no posts and follows one person. Furthermore, the book “Argylle” is based on has yet to be published, with various Amazon book landing pages listing different release dates. The Apple TV+ deal was reportedly made based solely on a draft manuscript.

Aside from the aforementioned Instagram account, there are only a few other facts available online about Elly Conway. Penguin Random House, the publisher of “Argylle,” provides a short biography mentioning that Conway is the author of the highly anticipated debut thriller and is currently working on the next installment in the series. Conway’s IMDb credits include another movie besides “Argylle,” indicating her involvement as a design assistant for a pre-production film called “The Fall Guy,” directed by David Leitch and starring Emily Blunt and Ryan Gosling.

What We Do Know

Despite the mystery surrounding “Argylle” and its author, there are a few concrete details we can rely on. The film’s director, Matthew Vaughn, praised the draft manuscript as an incredible and original spy franchise that will reinvent the genre. At Apple’s Peek Performance event, a brief snippet of footage from “Argylle” was released as part of an Apple TV+ sizzle reel. You can find the footage at around the 3:20 mark in the embedded YouTube video.

Online speculation about Elly Conway’s true identity ranges from J.K. Rowling using a pseudonym to this being an elaborate marketing stunt. There are also theories suggesting the involvement of nepotism. A previous investigation into the mystery of the writer “Rebecca Blunt” for Steven Soderbergh’s film “Logan Lucky” raises questions about the authenticity of authors. Hopefully, Apple will shed some light on this mystery soon.
