As theaters around the world continue to close down due to the ongoing global pandemic, major studios have ultimately decided to give early VOD releases to their new films including: Blumhouse’s The Hunt and Invisible Man; Warner Bros.’ Birds of Prey; Sony’s Bloodshot: Lionsgate’s I Still Believe; 20th Century Studios’ Call of the Wild; and Universal’s Trolls World Tour.
Set in the dazzling world of the LA music scene comes the story of Grace Davis (Tracee Ellis Ross), a superstar whose talent, and ego, have reached unbelievable heights, and Maggie (Dakota Johnson), her overworked personal assistant. While stuck running errands, Maggie still aspires to her childhood dream of becoming a music producer. When Grace’s manager (Ice Cube) presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Maggie and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives forever
The High Note will star Dakota Johnson (The Peanut Butter Falcon), Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish), Kelvin Harrison Jr. (It Comes at Night), Zoë Chao (Where’d You Go, Bernadette), Ice Cube (XXX: Return of Xander Cage), June Diane Raphael (Long Shot), Deniz Adkeniz (Once Upon a Time), Bill Pullman (The Sinner), Eddie Izzard (The Lego Batman Movie) and Diplo.
Written by Flora Greeson, The High Note is directed by Nisha Ganatra, who made a huge impression with the comedy Late Night at the Sundance Film Festival. It is produced by Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner with Nathan Kelly and Alexandra Loewy serving as executive producers.
