Community star Gillian Jacobs and Aladdin star Marwan Kenzari are set to star in a Berlin-set romantic comedy Any Other Night.
The movie comes from writer Patrick Whistler and director Michiel Ten Horn, who said in a statement,
“I’m just so happy to be working with Gillian and Marwan on this film. Gillian has obviously honed such smart, sharp comic timing. Marwan brings an incredible on-camera presence, intense but likeable. This film is a chance to see them both in a new light, something a little different than audiences may expect. It’s exciting. Their energy together is undeniable.”
In the film,
“Freshly dumped Maggie (Jacobs) and flailing cab driver Max (Kenzari) meet the night of a crippling transit strike, with the latter loading all of Maggie’s worldly possessions into the back of his decrepit van-cab. What should have been a simple fare becomes a wild, late-night odyssey.”
Producer Mike MacMillan of Lithium Studios added,
“We can’t wait to see Michiel, Gillian and Marwan bring this world to life. After such a difficult year for everyone, it feels like we need to laugh, to remember travel, to fall in love. It feels like perfect timing for ‘Any Other Night.’”
