Kickstart This Project: ‘Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse’
The apocalypse has been a ripe source for comedy in recent years, with three features in 2013 exploring the topic, in the form of Rapture-palooza, This Is The End, and The World’s End. A somewhat less explored genre for comedic tellings are road trip movies, and a mix of the two yields a very limited number of offerings, let alone comedic offerings. Comedy duo Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine are looking to add to that number with their latest offering. The group, who was behind the recent tongue-in-cheek campaign to replace a slur against black people in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with the word “robot”, is no stranger to filmmaking, with the webseries Mary Olson and their debut feature The Selling already under their belt. In addition, they have managed to assemble an impressive cast, including Barry Bostwick from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the tv series Spin City, Janet Varney from the tv series The Legend of Korra, the podcast The JV Club, and the webseries Burning Love, and Cole Stratton from the Pop My Culture podcast. The premise, as well as the people involved, makes this an intriguing project, and hopefully one that comes to fruition.
