Netflix Bolsters Cast For Ben Stiller-Produced ‘Eggplant Emoji’ | Film News
Daniel Doheny, Luke Spencer Roberts, Eduardo Franco, and Sadie Calvano have joined the cast of the Netflix comedy Eggplant Emoji. They are set to join Geraldine Viswanathan, who is in negotiations to star.
Netflix landed the film by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider, following a bidding war earlier this year.
The dark comedy will be produced by Ben Stiller and Nicky Weinstock via their Red Hour Films banner. Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Kyle Newacheck, the creators and stars of the Comedy Central show Workaholics, are also on board to produce.
In the vein of Superbad, the plot follows a teenager who accidentally cuts off his penis during a camping trip. He and his friends rush to save the appendage before it’s too late.
Doheny just wrapped production on the Netflix pic Alex Strangelove while Roberts was most recently seen in Fear The Walking Dead. Franco can be seen next on the Netflix series American Vandal and Calvano can currently be seen on the CBS series Mom.
