UPDATED: I learned that A24 will be on the cast of Ronnie Spector’s New Regency movie. The two had previously partnered to direct Robert Eggers The lighthouse, and they are part of Malcolm and Marie movie.
EXCEPTIONAL: A24 prepares a movie package that will win an Emmy Euphoria star Zendaya joined singer Ronnie Spector in a film about her life. The deals have just been closed for Spector’s life rights and for Be my girl, the memoirs she wrote with Vince Waldron. I hear that there are early conversations with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Jackie Sibles Drewry about writing the screenplay.
The film will be produced by Mark Platt, who is the producer of the Rob Marshall-directed film. The little mermaid, dear Evan Hansen and Wicked. Jonathan Greenfield and Spector will be executive producers, and Zendaya will also be co-producing as all of these deals come together.
Zendaya talks about Emmy’s historic and emotional victory for HBO’s “Euprohia:” “It means so much to me.”
A great way for Aretha Franklin to personally support Jennifer Hudson in the upcoming biographical film about MGM RespectSpector chose Zendaya as the actress who wanted to portray her in her early years. The singer grew up in Harlem, Spain, and formed a girl group, the Ronets, with her older sister, Estelle Bennett, and their cousin, Nedra Taley. They were signed by renowned vocal producer Phil Spector for his Philles Records label and had their breakthrough in 1963, “Be My Baby”. She married Spector, and as the book says, it was clear she had made a big mistake when she woke up one morning to the sound of bars on their mansion windows. She cleverly fought for her music rights in the ensuing divorce and was eventually inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She had a second wind when she played her most famous hit in a duet with Eddie Money on Take Me Home Tonight in 1986.
Netflix closes a $ 30 million deal to promote Malcolm and Marie; Sam Levinson Lockdown-Shot Drama Stars Zendaya and John David Washington: Toronto
It looked like the film would take root in Fox last year, but the sale of this Disney studio stopped its momentum. A24 is suitable as it produces Euphoria for HBO. Zendaya has just become the youngest actress to win a lead actress in a drama series – she is 24 – and the second black woman to win that category since Viola Davis in 2015. She is a hot young actress as you will find. To go with her work in Spider-Man: Back home and its sequels, she starred in the upcoming directed by Denis Vilenyuv Dune, and also Malcolm and Marie. She asked about that Euphoria EP Sam Levinson to write a film that could be shot during a pandemic. They have the Tenets John David Washington to star, and the resulting small-budget black-and-white film created a heated auction at the Toronto Film Festival before Netflix bought it for $ 30 million.
Life rights and book deals were made jointly by Ronnie’s manager John Greenfield and Hotchkiss Daily & Associates. Zendaya is represented by CAA, Monster Talent Management and its lawyers at Skrzyniarz & Mallean.
