A wide variety of shows on Hulu has made it one of the favorite platforms among the younger generation. The Valet is making a comeback after a long absence in a whole new guise. It’s a “fish out of water romantic comedy” remake of a French comedy from 2006 that originally aired in France.
Release Date for The Valet
Hulu has confirmed a spring 2022 release date for The Valet, a remake of the 2006 French comedy of the same name. In The Valet, Samara Weaving plays a movie star named Olivia, while Max Greenfield portrays Olivia’s married boyfriend, Vincent.
The film stars Eugenio Derbez as Antonio, a valet who mistakenly shows up in a paparazzi picture of Olivia and Vincent. Olivia, fearing a PR disaster, asks Antonio to pretend to be her new boyfriend in order to save face.
As Olivia and Antonio get to better understand each other, the ruse thrusts Antonio into the limelight and allows “two worlds and cultures to collide”.
If you’ve seen Ash vs. Evil Dead, The Babysitter films, or Ready or Not, you must have seen Weaving as the next-generation Scream Queen. She has also done comedies like Bill & Ted Face the Music and action movies like Snake Eyes in the last few years.
After appearing in New Girl as a supporting cast member, Greenfield became a household name. Later, he starred in movies like Promising Young Woman and What Men Want before moving on to other projects. In addition to appearing in CODA, multi-hyphenate Derbez recently starred in a supporting role in a significant Oscar-nominated film, that was also a French film adaptation.
At the recent Screen Actors Guild Awards, he and the rest of the CODA ensemble shared the historic victory for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
With Carmen Salinas Lozano, Amaury Nolasco, Betsy Brandt, Marisol Nichols, Diany Rodriguez, Tiana Okoye, John Pirruccello, Ravi Patel, and Lunay, The Valet is directed by Richard Wong.
