‘Girls Trip’ Director Malcolm D. Lee Signs First-Look Production Deal With Universal

18 July 2017 2:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Pictures has entered into a first-look production agreement with writer, director, and producer Malcolm D. Lee and his Blackmaled Productions.

The studio made the announcement three days before the launch of its comedy “Girls Trip,” which Lee directed and produced. The announcement was made by Peter Cramer, Universal’s president of production.

“Starting with ‘The Best Man,’ Malcolm has an incredible track record telling resonant stories that make audiences laugh and cry, which he has done brilliantly once again with ‘Girls Trip,'” Cramer said. “We are thrilled to formalize our long-standing relationship with Malcolm by welcoming his company to the lot, and we are excited about making many more films with him, starting with his next film, ‘Night School.'”

‘Girls Trip’ Review: Malcolm D Lee’s Bawdy, Boozy Comedy Showcases a Stellar Sisterhood

12 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“If I will it, I can have it all.” So goes the million-dollar motto for Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall), the bestselling author who centers Malcolm D. Lee’s sprawling, women-gone-wild comedy “Girls Trip.” Ryan’s aspirational thinking is meant to motivate her faithful followers, but it seems as though Lee himself was similarly inspired. Lee’s never had trouble crafting a confidently glossy film (we’ll pretend “Scary Movie 5” didn’t happen), although some of his endeavors (“Undercover Brother”) have been more memorable than others (“Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins”). “Girls Trip,” a raucous ode to African-American sisterhood, may be his most open-hearted effort since. »

Newswire: Dave Chappelle joins the A Star Is Born remake

5 May 2017 3:56 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have managed to pull in another big-name star for their upcoming version of the much-remade A Star Is Born. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dave Chappelle has signed on to appear in the film, which stars Cooper and Gaga as Hollywood lovers whose careers take rapidly diverging paths.

It’s been a while since Chappelle last dipped into the world of feature films; outside of a small role in Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq in 2015, he hasn’t been credited for acting in a movie since 2002’s Undercover Brother. It’s not clear how Cooper—who’s also directing the movie, his first—managed to lure him in, but Chappelle will apparently be playing “Noodles,” a blues musician who’s an old friend of Cooper’s fading star. Meanwhile, Sam Elliott and Andrew Dice Clay are also set to star.
