Tiffany Haddish has been incredibly busy since her big breakout role in Girls Trip from 2017. Since becoming an instant star in that film, she’s been in more than a dozen movies and appeared in dozens of episodes of television, but now the bombastic comedian is poised to appear in a genre in which she hasn’t done much work yet: science fiction.
Haddish is in talks to star in Landscape with Invisible Hand, a movie adaptation of a sci-fi novel about an alien invasion on Earth with a strange twist. Cory Finley, who recently directed the Hugh Jackman-starring corruption film Bad Education, is on board to write and direct. Read More »
Word came out today that Marvel Studios is developing an R-rated Deadpool 3, but buried in that original report was a separate piece of news we hadn’t heard before. Sony’s planned female-led Jump Street spin-off reportedly has a title, and it’s appropriate given the franchise’s penchant for humor: Jump Street: Now For Her Pleasure. I guess Jump Street: Ribbed For Her Pleasure may have been a step too far.

Plenty of industries are hurting because of the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes entertainment. But while movies and TV shows are starting to get back into production, live stand-up comedy shows are still mostly non-existent because gathering a bunch of people in a single room to open their mouths and guffaw incessantly isn’t the smartest movie when there’s a contagious virus kicking around. But Netflix recently put together a little video to hold us over with some of their biggest comedy stars.
Netflix asked comedian Neal Brennan to check in with some of his fellow comics like Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, John Mulaney, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and many more. Brennan wanted to provide some levity not just for the comedians stuck at home without an audience, but also for their fans who miss seeing the on stage, so he asks them all about their favorite jokes, comics, previous jobs, and more.

Bad Trip, a movie which stars Eric Andre, Lil Rel Howery, and Tiffany Haddish and features a mixture of traditional narrative and hidden camera pranks, was originally set to hit theaters last October. It got delayed to April 2020, and later it was moved up one week by the resurrected Orion Pictures. But the coronavirus pandemic put a stop to that, and now the film has found an entirely new home: it’s bypassing theaters and going straight to Netflix. Read More »
Eddie Murphy is slated to make his triumphant return to stand-up comedy at Netflix sometime in the future, but before that, we’ll see him try his hand at stand-up again for a big charity comedy festival being put together to benefit Feeding America food banks during the coronavirus pandemic.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Rose Byrne and Tiffany Haddish are both proven supporting players in raunchy R-rated comedies whose charisma is so strong, whose timing is so sharp, and whose deliveries are so hilarious that they have frequently threatened to upstage their leads. Byrne has played all manner of comedy wife or snobby socialite, while there isn’t an outrageous BFF that Haddish hasn’t been called up for. So put two and two together, and it sounds like you’ve got a buddy-comedy pairing for the ages, right?

And that’s when these women go to war. See how that goes in the new red band Like a Boss trailer. Read More »
