Production on the film, Burr’s feature directorial debut, kicked off in Los Angeles this week.

Miramax has come aboard to produce in conjunction with Burr’s All Things Comedy.

“Burr is one of the top comedic voices of his generation and he has written a script that’s not just unwaveringly funny, but also full of heart and unfiltered cultural commentary,” added Miramax CEO Bill Block. “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with him and this fantastic cast, including Bobby Cannavale and Bokeem Woodbine.”

Ana de Armas’ “Deep Water” to Open on Hulu in the United States

Ana de Armas will be heading into deep waters on Hulu

The Adrian Lyne-directed erotic thriller Deep Water, starring the 33-year-old Spanish Cuban actress and Ben Affleck, will open domestically on Hulu, according to Deadline.com.

Ana de Armas

 

Amazon will stream the film overseas.

The 20th Century Studios/New Regency film was pulled from the Disney theatrical release calendar last week. It was originally set to hit theaters on Jan. 14, 2022.

No word yet on a streaming date.

Deep Water, based on the Patricia Highsmith novel, reps Lyne’s first directorial since 2002’s Unfaithful. 

He was Oscar nominated in 1988 for Best Director for Paramount’s Fatal Attraction starring Glenn Close and Michael Douglas, which was a huge hit at the time grossing over $320M WW.

Deep Water is reportedly being sent to streaming given the weak theatrical marketplace for adult fare currently.

Affleck and de Armas star as Vic and Melinda Van Allen, a married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. The couple staves off divorce in a loveless marriage by allowing each to take lovers, but it becomes messy as Highsmith exposed the surface façade of American suburban life.

Zach Helm and Sam Levinson adapted the book. Tracy Letts, Rachel Blanchard, Dash Mihok, Lil Rel Howery, Jacob Elordi, Kristen Connolly and Jade Fernandez also star.

Ana de Armas to Replace Scarlett Johansson in Apple’s Romantic Action Adventure Film “Ghosted”

Ana de Armas has officially ghosted

The 33-year-old Cuban-Spanish actress will replace Scarlett Johansson in Apple Original Films’ romantic action adventure film Ghosted.

Ana de ArmasJohansson has amicably exited the film in what sources describe as a scheduling conflict.

de Armas wil reunite with her Knives Out co-star Chris Evans in the film, which will be helmed by Dexter Fletcher.

de Armas will serve as an executive producer.

The film’s writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, will also be producers. They developed the project based on an original idea of theirs and preemptively sold it to Skydance.

Apple acquired the high-profile project over the summer. It is described as a high concept romantic action adventure film.

The change comes because the intent is to get the picture into production by February, and the timing didn’t work out for Johansson. Ellison led the charge to bring in de Armas, who’s about as hot an actress out there right now after Knives OutNo Time to Die, and Blonde.

She most recently starred with Evans and Ryan Gosling in the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed The Gray Man for Netflix.

She has also been in talks to play the lead in the John Wick spinoff Ballerina.

Izzo has previously appeared on the film side in Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar winner Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood; Universal and Amblin’s The House with a Clock in Its Walls, opposite Jack Black and Cate Blanchett; and writer-director Dan Fogelman’s multigenerational Amazon drama, Life Itself, opposite Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde.

Ana de Armas is takin’ the assasin’s creed…

The 33-year-old Cuban actress, currently appearing in No Time To Die, is in talks to take the lead role in the anticipated John Wick spinoff Ballerina.

Ana de Armas

The project centers on a young female assassin who seeks revenge against the people who killed her family.

The character made a fleeting appearance in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum as a ballerina who is also training to be an assassin.

Len Wiseman is on board to direct the action-thriller, whose script comes from Shay Hatten, known for Zack Snyder’s Army Of The Dead and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

The movie re-teams John Wick studio Lionsgate with producers Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Chad Stahelski.

The project budget would be somewhere in the $50-80M range. It remains unclear whether Keanu Reeves will make a fleeting appearance in the film, though there is a hope that he and Anjelica Huston may provide cameos.

de Armas’ star is on a career high right now and there are multiple big-scale projects that could come together for her. The Golden Globe nominee is currently in post-production on Netflix and the Russo brothers’ $200M action pic The Gray Man, and the same studio’s long-awaited Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde.

Jacob Elordi is in parallel

The 23-year-old Spanish-Australian actor and The Kissing Booth star Jacob Elordi will star as the lead in Parallel, the Legendary film described as an action thriller with a grounded sci-fi conceit and an intense love story.

Tom Green, who directed the multi BAFTA-winning series Misfits for E4/Channel 4 in the UK, is directing the feature. BAFTA nominee Steve Lightfoot wrote the screenplay, which takes place in a world where “parallel” versions of our reality are accessible, though unknown to most – and to visit them is illegal.

Elordi is set to reprise his role in the upcoming The Kissing Booth 3 on Netflix as well as Season 2 of HBO’s Euphoria. Elordi will soon be seen co-starring opposite Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas in the Deep Water from 20th Century Studios.

Ana de Armas to Star Opposite Ryan Gosling & Chris Evans in Netflix’s “The Gray Man”

It’s a case of gray matters for Ana de Armas.

The 32-year-old Cuban-Spanish actress will star opposite Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans in Joe and Anthony Russo’s big-budget action thriller The Gray Man for Netflix.

Ana de Armas

The Russos have been developing the project for awhile at Sony Pictures, and when the package went back on the market over the summer, Netflix was quick to acquire it and set Gosling and Evans to star. The film will be the biggest-budget film in Netflix’s history on the feature side.

The Russos penned the script with a recent polish by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The Gray Man is the debut novel by Mark Greaney, published in 2009 by Jove Books. It also is the first novel to feature the Gray Man, freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry.

The action thriller will follow Gentry (Gosling) as he’s hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort at the CIA. The film is based on the first installment of the best-selling Gray Man book series.

de Armas has been on a roll as of late, going back to her Golden Globe-nominated performance in the murder mystery Knives Out. She also recently was seen in the Netflix pic SergioThe Informer and The Night Clerk. With the Covid-19 pandemic delaying several films, her 2021 is expected to be equally busy as she can be seen in the next James Bond film No Time to Die and the New Regency thriller Deep Water opposite Ben Affleck. She is also set to star in Blonde, where she portrays Norma Jean.
