Marisé Álvarez to Star in the Dark Comedy “Evilou”

Marisé Álvarez has lined up her next project…

The Puerto Rican actress will star in the Night Kitchen Films and Phillm Productions’ dark comedy Evilou.

Marisé Álvarez,Alvarez will star opposite Margaret Cho and DJ Qualls in the project.

This is the feature directorial debut of Andrew Zappin, who also penned the script.

Production is now underway in Los Angeles with the film slated for release in 2024 with North American and international rights still available.

Evilou is a dark comedy love story about Lou Vile (Qualls) – a bitter, shock-jock podcaster who has devoted his life to waging war on love. When he falls for a charming single-mother (Álvarez), Lou decides to undergo a personality-altering medical procedure in a desperate attempt to win her affection. Cho joins the cast as the hip and enlightened boss at Earwig Media, Lou’s dream job that rejects him before his life-changing procedure.

“Andrew Zappin has written an incredibly unique and refreshing script that captures the absurdity of the human condition” says producer David J. Phillips, “and we’re delighted that the incredibly underrated DJ Qualls is the film’s lead. Coupling his talent with the rooted emotional range of Marisé Álvarez and now the comedic genius of Margaret Cho puts us in perfect position to bring Andrew’s fun and thought-provoking script to its full potential.”

Alvarez’s previous credits include Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Resort and Che: Part One.
