Rebel Wilson and Leslie Mann are going to “Rock The Boat”

Rebel Wilson and Leslie Mann have signed a new film called “Rock The Boat” for director Luke Greenfield (“Let’s Be Cops”). The plans are for an R-rated, female-led comedy that takes its premise from the real-life phenomenon of famous ’90s boy bands performing reunion shows on luxury cruise lines. The story will involve Wilson, Mann and two other characters going on a “girls trip” cruise together to see their favorite childhood band sing and dance once more. From this movie, we’d like to see the following: the recently released Wilson playing a queer character and some major appearances from real-life boy bands. Yes we want a FULL – N’SYNC reunion and we want Boyz II Men and we want… well, we don’t know who else we want, but if you can’t top the Backstreet Boys finale- in-heaven of “This is The End” so what are we even doing? Principal photography is scheduled to begin in January 2023.

John Waters will finally direct a new movie

We’ve been looking forward to this moment: John Waters is going to direct a new film for Village Roadshow Pictures. After “A Dirty Shame” in 2004, we hoped he would make his long Christmas movie, “Fruitcake”, which he talked about from time to time. When the funding didn’t roll in, he kept busy with hilarious speaking tours, enjoying passive income from “Hairspray” stage productions and writing books, like his recent novel, “Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance.” . Now this novel is going to be his next movie, and we’re ready. It follows a woman named Marsha Sprinkle, a con man, a master of disguise and bad news. In other words, she’s our kind of John Waters heroine. This is fresh news, there is no casting yet and we don’t know how long we have to wait. But there’s a deal, Waters was quoted as saying he’s ready to spread “crazy joy,” and we’re lighting candles to Saints Divine and Edith Massey to keep him on track.

Jared Leto as Karl Lagerfeld – why not?

From House of Gucci to House of Lagerfeld, Jared Leto puts fashion back in the spotlight. He is co-producing, alongside members of Karl Lagerfeld’s creative team, a biopic about the life of the legendary German couturier, who rose to international fame when he stepped in to relaunch the Chanel brand in the 1980s. The life of the idiosyncratic designer – he died aged 85 in 2019 – was, as one might guess, sparkly and full of famous friends, so a biopic could go in many directions. While Leto’s production company is looking for a director to take on the project, the script is still strictly confidential, and so far all we know is that Leto will play Lagerfeld. It makes us happy, because after the actor’s crazy performance “House of Gucci” where he competed for scene-stealing status with Gaga’s outfits, and the wacky “Morbius”, we are more or less ready to whatever he does. . And it looks like he will.

‘Do I compare you to a summer day’ NewFest serenades

Ever seen “Bros” and “Fire Island?” Waiting for the sequel? Well, director Mohammad Shawky Hassan’s queer Egyptian film ‘Shall I Compare You to a Summer’s Day’ has already garnered acclaim at the Berlin Film Festival, and this month it’s coming to the LGBTQ+ Film Festival in New York. York, NewFest. Hassan’s musical love story is based on an Egyptian pop soundtrack and based on his own diary, Shakespeare’s sonnets and folk tales from Scheherazade’s ‘One Thousand and One Nights’, as the spirits of old lovers and Scheherazade sing about polyamory and Grindr and other very strange. the subjects. And perhaps unsurprisingly, he’s already been convicted by the Egyptian authorities, which means we feel a strong responsibility to spread the word and buy tickets to this song-filled sex adventure. Keep it on your radar when it pops up at the queer film festival or arthouse cinema near you.
