At WarnerMedia Day, HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey announced that Gina Rodriguez will be starring in upcoming feature film Bobbie Sue at HBO Max.
The film will focus on the title character, who after being raised among four rowdy brothers in a blue-collar neighbourhood, becomes a scrappy, headstrong young lawyer who lands a career-making case with an upper crust law firm, only to realise she’s been hired for optics and not her expertise. But after discovering her powerful client, a lifelong idol of hers, is trying to cover-up exploiting workers within her company, Bobbie decides to take both her and the law firm on, caution and etiquette be damned.
Producer Donald De Line said:
Giving a project like Bobbie Sue the reach and accessibility that HBO Max provides is what every filmmaker is looking for right now. Gina Rodriguez and Charles Stone III both have an incredible talent for bringing rich characters, timely stories and authentic worlds to life.
The film is being directed by Charles Stone III.
