Jillian Bell, Isla Fisher to Star in Disney+ Comedy ‘Godmothered’

Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell are set to star in Godmothered, a comedy for Disney+.

Sharon McGuire, best known for directing the Bridget Jones movies, is helming the feature project that is being developed by Disney’s live-action team run by motion picture production president Sean Bailey.

Justin Springer and Ivan Reitman’s Montecito Pictures are producing.

The story tells of a young and unskilled fairy godmother (Bell) that ventures out on her own to prove her worth by tracking down a young girl whose request for help was ignored. What she discovers is that the girl has now become a grown woman (Fisher) in need of something very different than a “Prince Charming.”

Kari Granlund (Lady and the Tramp) and Melissa Stack wrote the script.

Production is due to begin later this month in Boston. Jessica Virtue and Allison Erlikman are overseeing for Disney.

Bell toplined the well-regarded comedy Brittany Runs a Marathon, which she also executive produced. Prior to that, the actress did scene-stealing work in a slew of comedies ranging from 22 Jump Street and Rough Night to Fist Fight and Goosebumps. She also worked with Paul Thomas Anderson in Inherent Vice and The Master.

Fisher is coming off shooting a leading role in Blithe Spirit opposite Dan Stevens and Judi Dench, and last year appeared opposite Matthew McConaughey in Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum. She also appears with Steve Coogan in the upcoming satire Greed, which will be released by Sony Pictures Classics.

Fisher is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer; Bell is repped by UTA, 3 Arts and Stone Genow.

As posted about before, Isla reprised her role of Rebel Alley in Season 5 of Arrested Development, although it emerged last year that the season was split into two parts. The first 8 episodes aired in 2018, and the second part aired last year. Isla only appeared in a couple of the episodes last year, and today HD screencaptures from those episodes have been added to our Gallery. This was a fun role for Isla, and gave her another great opportunity to show off her comedic talents!

The first trailer for one of Isla’s upcoming movies – Greed – has just been released:

GREED tells the story of self-made British billionaire Sir Richard McCreadie (Steve Coogan), whose retail empire is in crisis. For 30 years he has ruled the world of retail fashion – bringing the high street to the catwalk and the catwalk to the high street – but after a damaging public inquiry, his image is tarnished. To save his reputation, he decides to bounce back with a highly publicised and extravagant party celebrating his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. A satire on the grotesque inequality of wealth in the fashion industry, the film sees McCreadie’s rise and fall through the eyes of his biographer, Nick (David Mitchell).

The Devil is in the Retail, #GreedMovie starring Steve Coogan, David Mitchell and Isla Fisher. At Cinemas February 21.

Sony Pictures Classics Closing In On Michael Winterbottom-Directed Satire ‘Greed’

Sony Pictures Classics is negotiating a U.S. distribution deal for Greed, the Michael Winterbottom-directed fashion industry satire, Deadline hears. The film makes its World Premiere today at the Elgin Theatre here in Toronto.

Pic stars Steve Coogan, David Mitchell, Isla Fisher, Shirley Henderson, Asa Butterfield, Dinita Gohil, Shanina Shaik, and Sarah Solemani. Coogan, who worked with Winterbottom on The Trip To Spain and The Trip To Italy, here plays a retail billionaire preparing for a lavish celebration of his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. The occasion is overseen by a reality-TV camera crew, and a writer (Mitchell) hired to craft McCreadie’s hagiographic biography with assistance from McCreadie’s ex-wife (Fisher). Meanwhile, refugees from Syria have set up camp on a nearby beach, much to the consternation of hotel staff and local authorities. In the process, horrendous truths regarding McCreadie’s past are revealed that threaten the billionaire’s entire enterprise.

Pic was backed by Sony Pictures International Productions (SPIP) and Film4, so it isn’t startling it might stay within the Sony family. Winterbottom wrote the script with Sean Gray (Veep). Damian Jones and Melissa Parmenter produced and Daniel Battsek and Ollie Madden are the exec producers.

Harmony Korine’s ‘The Beach Bum’ lands UK and Ireland deal with Blue Finch

Harmony Korine’s comedy The Beach Bum, starring Matthew McConaughey, has secured a UK and Ireland theatrical deal with nascent distributor Blue Finch Film Releasing.

Rocket Science is handling international sales on the film, which premiered at SXSW in March and was then released in North American by Neon where it has grossed $3.5m to date.

Korine’s sixth feature, and his first since 2012 hit Spring Breakers, follows the misadventures of the rogueish Moondog (McConaughey) around the tropics of Cuba and Florida. Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill and Martin Lawrence co-star.

The Beach Bum was produced by John Lesher, Steve Golin, Charles-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar and Nicolas Lhermitte, with financing from Ingenious Media, Riverstone Pictures and SPK Pictures.

Set up by former Kaleidoscope executive Mike Chapman, with sales executive Simon Crowe and financier Matthew Joynes in August 2018, Blue Finch will release the title later this year.

Blue Finch’s upcoming distribution slate also includes family animation Charming, SXSW title Body At Brighton Rock and Karen Gillan’s directorial debut The Party’s Just Beginning.
