Aubrey Plaza to star in new film from director of The Greasy Strangler

The Greasy Strangler

Aubrey Plaza (alongside Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson, Jemaine Clement, and Snuff Box’s Matt Berry) has signed on for a new film from Jim Hosking, the director whose gross-out debut The Greasy Strangler provoked a mixture of laughs and gags from critics last year. Hosking’s new feature, An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn, sounds just as strange, if slightly less obsessed with shoving disgusting sausages down audiences’ throats.

Plaza stars as Lulu Danger—no relation, presumably, to the illusive Janet Snakehole—whose boring marriage takes a “fortunate turn for the worse” when she’s invited to the titular show. Frankly, we have no idea what happens after that, but Hosking was apparently able to sell people on the film’s promise, given the number of big name comedy stars he’s drawn in for his second film.
