According to Deadline, two of Hollywood’s rising young stars Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Lana Condor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) have signed for leading roles in the forthcoming coming-of-age comedy movie titled Girls Night. Directed by Marianna Palka (GLOW), the film’s production is expected to begin in summer in New York City.
“We’ve finally arrived at an era where it has become permissible for women to be portrayed as wild, imperfect, inappropriate, hilarious and real human beings.” Palka said. “Girls Night is about coming-of-age, rejecting societal constraints, and the power of sisterhood. We will break some boundaries!”
Producer Shaun Redick added, “Lana and Brianna are the perfect combination to lead this memorable comedy. The characters of Alex and Tina are about to take flight,”
