On September 28, 2016, a sequel to the film was officially announced. One day before the announcement, Le Matos released the official music video for their track “No Tomorrow”, which serves as a prequel to the original film:
Still one of the most bizarre “pop” groups ever made. They were the definition of “living art”. A sick combination of Gnostic religion, country music, ice cream carts, stage house and a dash of Jesus complex. As icing on the cake they deleted their whole back catalog of music when they went into “retirement”, music that was worth millions of pounds in record revenues. If that was not bizarre enough, they took out a million pounds sterling, nailed all the banknotes on a board and burned everything in front of a camera. Today you can not find their music either on Spotify, iTunes or a record store. Only through file sharing or YouTube can you hear the phenomenon that was … The KLF.

Swinton later reflected on the role in an interview accompanied by a striking photoshoot. “People talk about androgyny in all sorts of dull ways,” said Swinton, noting that the recent rerelease of Orlando had her thinking again about its pliancy. She referred to 1920s French artist and playful gender-bender Claude Cahun: “Cahun looked at the limitlessness of an androgynous gesture, which I’ve always been interested in.”
