“Hamilton” actor Javier Munoz, David Sullivan, and Marguerite Moreau will star in the independent comedy “Monuments,” which has started shooting, Variety has learned exclusively.

David Pasquesi, Joel Murray, and Shunori Ramanathan round out the cast.

The movie marks Munoz’s first film role since departing the Broadway production of “Hamilton.” He stepped into the title role following Lin-Manuel Miranda’s exit and played Alexander Hamilton from mid 2016 until early 2018.

Jack C. Newell is directing “Monuments” from his own script about a separated couple, played by Sullivan and Moreau, whose relationship is getting back on track, when she’s killed in a freak accident in Colorado. Determined to scatter her ashes in the place where they first fell in love, he steals her urn and hits the road back to the Midwest with her family and relentless ex-boyfriend, portrayed by Munoz, in hot pursuit.

The production company is Chicago-based Zaxie and the producer is Angie Gaffney of Black Apple Media (“Signature Move” and the upcoming “Killing Eleanor”). Charles Leslie and Ed Toolis are executive producing. Shooting is taking place in Denver and Chicago.

Sullivan stars in Netflix’s “Flaked” and HBO’s “Sharp Objects.” and he will next be seen in AMC’s “The Son.” Moreau starred in the film “Wet Hot American Summer” and Netflix series reboot.

Munoz is also represented by Authentic Talent & Literary Management. Sullivan is repped by Authentic, Paradigm, and attorney Lev Ginsburg. Moreau is repped by Echo Lake Entertainment and Buchwald.


Is ‘A Night To Regret’ Based On A True Story? The Lifetime Thriller Tells A Twisted Story About Web Cam Modeling Gone Wrong

Remember when your parents used to warn you away from the internet, lest some anonymous creep should become obsessed with you and start stalking you in real life? Well, add in an evil web cam girl and one spiked cocktail, and you’ve got the plot of Lifetime’s latest thriller. A Night To Regret, premieres Sunday, June 24, and according to the official synopsis, the story begins when Chelsea (played by Mollee Gray) meets up with an old friend, Milla, (played by Kirstin Pfeiffer), who’s now working as a web cam girl. But Milla’s got a serious dark side now, and she drugs Chelsea’s drink and secretly films her, broadcasting the footage to a viewer who becomes obsessed with finding Chelsea and having her all to himself. But just how close to reality is this whole ordeal? Is A Night To Regret based on a true story?

Mercifully, A Night To Regret is pure fiction. In fact, the storyline has so many twists and turns (it is a Lifetime movie, after all), I think it’s pretty safe to say that this particular situation hasn’t happened before. At least I hope not.

Unfortunately, though, for women and cam girls in particular, harassment is often just par for the course of being on the internet. The Mic reported on a study from Pew Research Center, which claimed that 26 percent of young, female internet users have been stalked online.

The Mic also interviewed web cam performer Eliza Jane at Cam Con in Miami, who described herself and other cam girls as “an easy target.”

I’m not sure I’ve ever done a show where I didn’t experience some [harassment],” Jane told the Mic. “I definitely worry about my physical safety. I’m at risk every day… I just hope I’m not the next girl to go through something terrible.

If you’re curious to understand the perspective of real cam girls without the melodrama of a Lifetime movie, then you might want to check out Sean Dunne’s documentary Cam Girlz. The film, which was released on Jan. 22, 2015, catches up with 37 different cam girls, and details their reasons for getting into the job and the results of their experience in the field.

As part of her Viceland series Slutever, Karley Sciortino, also chronicled the stories of real-life cam girls. Season 1 Episode 6, titled “Cam Girls,” premiered on March 7, 2018 and features Sciortino, meeting up with multiple different web cam models and discussing their thoughts on what it means to be part of this growing field of sex work.

Get Involved, Internet: Fund a Wet Hot American Summer RPG

Here’s one for anyone who’s ever needed advice from a talking can of mixed vegetables, or just longed to be Paul Rudd tossing silverware: Comedy publisher The Devastator has just launched a new Kickstarter seeking funds for a tabletop RPG based on Wet Hot American Summer.

Capturing a day in the life of Camp Firewood (or a camp of your own creation), the book features a foreword from writer and director David Wain, plus interviews with Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, and Marguerite Moreau, offering tips on how best to portray their WHAS characters. (You can also design your own camper, if you want to unleash the ultimate talent show champion that doesn’t suck dick.)

Designed to look like the “gernal” of Rudd’s rebellious loner Andy, the book features sections on exploring and designing the camp, setting up activities, and potential plot hooks like saving the camp, or just getting as laid as humanly possible. Kickstarter rewards include digital and printed version of the manual, plus a jar of Gene’s dick cream, or stick team, or whatever it was you think he said.


Thriller ‘Overexposed’ begins production in Oklahoma

The feature film “Overexposed” will begin principal photography Feb. 6 in Oklahoma City and Guthrie.

The movie is using the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program, administered by the Oklahoma Film + Music Office.

The state film and music office, along with producer Rob Allyn of Margate House Films and producer-financier Simon Fawcett and executive producer Larry Mortorff of UK-based Atlantic Screen Productions, made the announcement today.

We are excited to bring ‘Overexposed’ to Oklahoma,” said Rob Allyn in a news release. “The state is a perfect fit for the American-heartland setting of our film. It’s an important film and the local community has been instrumental in helping to bring our story from page to screen.

Director Conor Allyn is returning to Oklahoma after helming the film “Forsaken,” which accessed the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program in summer 2016.

I’m thrilled to return with another exciting film and to be embraced by the exceptional community of filmmakers here. It’s a spectacular place to work, and we are thrilled to be part of OF+MO’s success in building film industry jobs here,” said Conor Allyn in the release.

“Overexposed” is a gritty, topical thriller dealing with important social issues. In small-town Oklahoma, a teenage girl, whose mother is the local sheriff, is caught up in a sexting scandal that leads to panic, outrage and murder. The film teams writer/director Conor Allyn’s Margate House Films with Atlantic Screen Productions for the first of several planned co-productions between the U.S. and British international production companies.

Between the authentic locations, the crew and overall support, we felt that there was no better place for us to film than Oklahoma,” said Fawcett in the news release.

“Overexposed” will be lensed by Oklahoma’s own Director of Photography Sam Calvin and star Marguerite Moreau (“Wet Hot American Summer”), Mary Katherine Duhon, Dave Maldonado and Taylor Murphy.

The production is being managed by local Oklahoma Production Manager Nathan Gardocki with a crew comprised almost entirely of Oklahoma residents.

The production of ‘Overexposed’ marks Conor Allyn’s second feature film in Oklahoma in less than a year,” said Oklahoma Film + Music Office Director Tava Maloy Sofsky in the release. “The longevity of the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program is necessary to attract producers who have a number of potential productions which ultimately provide Oklahoma’s crew and film services on-going job and business opportunities.
