Recently seen in a small role in Marvel’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier , Julia Louis-Dreyfus has reportedly signed on to star in a new fantasy comedy Tuesday . Although little is known about the plot, the film co-funded by A24 / BBC Film has been described as a ‘mother-daughter fairy tale’. The lack of precision in the brief synopsis means there are a lot of directions it could take, but based on the cast and crew credentials, there will likely be a few laughs along the way.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus takes the role of the mother of the main character on Tuesday, which will be played by the future Lola Petticrew. The Irish actress has appeared in a number of roles since her television debut in the 2018 miniseries Closest Relative , featuring Bloodlands and My Left Nut as well as the films Meet Amber and A Bump in the Way . She will then be seen as Jane Seymour in the new Anne Boleyn miniseries, which received much media coverage recently for being the first historical drama to have a black actress playing the doomed wife of Henry VIII. Petticrew also stars alongside Lily-Rose Depp in the upcoming Nathalie Biancheri written and directed Loup .
Tuesday will be the directorial debut feature of London-based Daina O Pusic, who won critical acclaim for her short The Beast when it premiered in 2015 at the Telluride Film Festival, and has won numerous awards for its follow-up Rhonna and Donna the following year.
A24 already has a number of films set for release this year and hope to follow the success of their recent hits such as Lady Bird and Uncut Gems . This summer will see them release the medieval fantasy The Green Knight , as well as the contemporary tale of Rosemary Baby in False Positive , and finally Zola , based on a Twitter thread , because that’s what the movies are made of, obviously.
Louis-Dreyfus is no stranger to success itself, having won a joint record of eight Acting Primetime Emmy Awards for her roles in The New Adventures of Old Christine , Seinfeld and Veep , which also earned her three awards from producer. Her comedy credentials were bolstered when she became the sixth woman to win the Mark Twain Award for American Comedy, joining a distinguished list of Whoopi Goldberg, Tina Fey, Carol Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres and Lily Tomlin. While she doesn’t venture onto the big screen very often, she does spin downhill, Deconstruct Harry and Enough says proved to her that she was more than capable of transferring her abilities between movie roles and the small screen.
While the details of where we can expect to see Tuesday will likely not be known for some time yet, following a number of A24 projects landed on Apple TV +, it’s likely that it will. it doesn’t get a full theatrical release, it will likely be found on the tech giant’s streaming service . No matter where it lands, with a more than competent cast and crew, A24 is clearly going to have another hit. This news comes from Variety.
