Daisy Ridley, Luke Evans And Josh Gad On For New Comedy
There’s always excitement about a fresh script pitch floating around Hollywood, and a new comedy to be written by Aaron and Jordan Kandell is generating much heat. That’s certainly helped by having Daisy Ridley, Luke Evans and Josh Gad attached to star.
The writers, who worked on _Moan_a’s story and are seeing their survival tale Adrift come to life with Shailene Woodley on board, have reportedly cooked up an original, character-driven comedy that offers a new spin on the superhero genre. Finding something fresh given the sheer number of films and shows about cape-clad folk sounds like quite the effort, so we’ll wait to see what the untitled movie might do with the idea. Studios are circling this one, so we can expect to hear more soon.
Assuming they stay through to production, it’ll be the first time that Ridley, Evans and Gad have worked together as a trio: Gad and Ridley will be seen in the new Murder On The Orient Express, due on 3 November, while Gad and Evans shared the screen in Beauty And The Beast. Daisy will no doubt be hoping that the movie doesn’t shoot after she finishes work on the next main Star Wars outing, lest Josh once more pepper her with questions about the movie… —Empire
