The cast includes Pedro Pascal, Maria Bakalova, Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, David Duchovny, Leslie Mann, Iris Apatow, and Keegan-Michael Key.
Well, I never expected to be writing this article based on gossip, but since the hollywood reporter has pulled it out, it’s time to spill the tea: Judd Apatownew Netflix comedy The bubble is inspired by the understandably chaotic production of Jurassic World: Dominion, according to sources.
Let me explain. Jurassic World: Dominion was filmed during the pandemic over the past year, which means its cast and crew were forced to quarantine together in the UK for months, which couldn’t have been easy. With safety in mind above all else, production faced multiple stops and starts due to positive tests for COVID-19, and that roller coaster ride was well documented by the media.
When Apatow’s latest movie was first announced, a source explained how it came to be, saying that a member of DomainThe large ensemble was recalling the various ups and downs to feel Leslie mann, who later told the story to her husband, Apatow. The director immediately thought it would be a fun movie, and while he’s been working at Universal for a long time, that studio is behind it too. Jurassic World: Dominion, therefore The bubble ended up on Netflix.
The director has now lined up an all-star cast for The bubble that includes Pedro Pascal, Karen gillan, Borat 2 sensation Maria bakalova, Fred armisen, David duchovny, Peter Serafinowicz Y Keegan-Michael Key. Meanwhile, Mann will co-star alongside his youngest daughter, Iris Apatow, whose older sister, Maude, co-starred in Apatow’s most recent movie The King of Staten Island. It seems that Dad prefers to tune out rather than play favorites.
The bubble is described as a metacomedy about a group of actors trapped inside a pandemic bubble in a hotel while trying to complete a major franchise film for a major studio. According to THR, Pascal and Gillan will play the two stars of the film within the film, although it is not known if it will be dinosaurs. Meanwhile, Mann and Duchovny will play a divorced movie star couple – a la Domain stars Laura dern Y Jeff goldblum, who dated in the 90s, who find themselves living together again under the same hotel roof with their teenage daughter (Iris Apatow).
Apatow will produce The bubble and directly from a script with which he co-writes Pam brady, who will be an executive producer together Donald sabourin and long time Apatow contributor Barry mendel.
THR made sure to point out that Netflix experts have denied that The bubble has something to do with Jurassic World: DominionBut it sure sounds like tensions are high in that one-game pressure cooker, and it’s understandable. The truth is that it is difficult to make a huge box office hit, even outside of a pandemic, but as long as the drama remains behind the scenes and doesn’t leak into the finished movie, who cares? Still, it’s fun to gossip, and while I thought this story would have stayed on Zoom’s cocktail circuit, I hope you enjoy this fun story now that it’s finally out.
Jurassic World: Dominion will hit theaters in June 2022, but you can expect to see for sure The bubble before that. Meanwhile, look where Pregnant falls in our Apatow movie rating.
