Ilana Glazer has a new film on the horizon titled False Positive and it's been confirmed to debut as a Hulu original next year.
The film is co-written and produced by Broad City's Glazer and John Lee, which marks their co-writing feature film debut since working on the cult TV show. Glazer will star in the film as a woman who is having a hard time getting pregnant, Lucy, with her partner Adrian (played by Justin Theroux). The couple find an ideal fertility doctor named Dr Hindle (played by Pierce Brosnan), who seems like a perfect match to help them on their journey.
Unfortunately, things aren't as they seem, and “after becoming pregnant with a healthy baby girl,” the film’s logline reads, “Lucy begins to notice something sinister through Hindle’s gleaming charm, and she sets out to uncover the unsettling truth about him, and her own ‘birth story.’ As if getting pregnant weren’t complicated enough…”
Glazer, Theroux and Brosnan are joined in the horror-thriller by Gretchen Mol, Sophia Bush and Josh Hamilton. With Lee on direction for the film. False Positive was adapted from a story he co-wrote with Alissa Nutting and a script penned with Glazer. Alongside Glazer and Lee, Jonathan Wang produced the project.
“It’s going to be insane,” Glazer told Variety on their podcast last June after wrapping filming. “It’s about the patriarchy…as expressed through medicine.” She said.
It will be interesting to see Glazer star in a film that sounds so sinister, a far cry from the actor and writers start in the comedic TV series Broad City, where Glazer plays herself alongside co-writer Abbi Jacobson. For those not familiar, we'd urge you to stop what you're doing and watch it immediately for endless laughs while you observe two best friends in their late 20s struggle through life in New York City.
There is no trailer for False Positive thus farm but we'll keep this page updated as new information surfaces.
