The film will focus
on a pair, performed by Rae and Nanjiani, who’re on the cusp of breaking apart earlier than
they get “embroiled in a weird and hijinks-filled homicide thriller, and as they
get shut to clearing their names and fixing the case, the twosome want to
determine how they, and their relationship, can survive the night time,” writes
The Lovebirds might be directed by Michael Showalter, who directed Nanjiani in 2017’s The Huge Sick, and written by Aaron
Abrams, Brendan Gall and Martin Gero.
Rae and Nanijiani each
have tv exhibits on HBO. Rae stars in the comedy Insecure, which has earned her Emmy and Golden Globes nominations;
NanijianI seems in the premium cable channel’s Silicon Valley.
