Any Other Night: Gillian Jacobs And Marwan Kenzari To Star In Romantic Comedy

Variety is exclusively reporting that Gillian Jacobs and Marwan Kenzari are set to star in the Berlin-set romantic comedy Any Other Night.

.

The film follows two strangers thrown together as their lives are falling apart. Freshly dumped Maggie and flailing cab driver Max meet the night of a crippling transit strike, with the latter loading all of Maggie’s worldly possessions into the back of his decrepit van-cab. What should have been a simple fare becomes a wild, late-night odyssey.

.

Gillian Jacobs (whose credits include Community and Invincible) will be playing the role of Maggie, and Marwan Kenzari (whose credits include Aladdin and The Old Guard) will be playing the role of Max.

.

Michiel Ten Horn, director of the project, released a statement saying:

I’m just so happy to be working with Gillian and Marwan on this film. Gillian has obviously honed such smart, sharp comic timing. Marwan brings an incredible on-camera presence, intense but likeable. This film is a chance to see them both in a new light, something a little different than audiences may expect. It’s exciting. Their energy together is undeniable.

.

Mike MacMillian of Lithium Studios, producer on the project, added:

We can’t wait to see Michiel, Gillian and Marwan bring this world to life. After such a difficult year for everyone, it feels like we need to laugh, to remember travel, to fall in love. It feels like perfect timing for ‘Any Other Night.

.

The script is written by Patrick Whistler. The film also marks Ten Horn’s first English-language film project.
