Bleecker Street has announced that principal photography has commenced in Georgia on upcoming feel-good comedy The Fabulous Four from writer-director Jocelyn Moorhouse (The Dressmaker), after being granted a SAG interim agreement. Emmy Award®-winner Sheryl Lee Ralph (“Abbott Elementary”), Bruce Greenwood (“The Fall of the House of Usher”), and Timothy V. Murphy (Appaloosa) have joined the cast, alongside Susan Sarandon, Bette Midler, and Megan Mullally. Bleecker Street nabbed the North American rights to the title last October and will release the film in theaters in the U.S. in 2024. UTA Independent Film Group and CAA Media Finance arranged the financing and brokered the deal with Bleecker Street for the US distribution rights. Sierra/Affinity is representing international sales rights.
Richard Barton Lewis’ Southpaw Entertainment is producing with Lauren Hantz of Hantz Motion Pictures.
The comedy follows three life-long friends (Sarandon, Mullally, and Ralph) who travel to Key West, Florida to be bridesmaids in a surprise wedding of their college girlfriend Marilyn (Midler). Once there, sisterhoods are rekindled, the past rises up again in all its glory, and there are enough sparks, drinks and romance to change all their lives in ways they never expected.
