Aubrey Plaza and Alison Brie are set to re-team for a fresh new indie comedy, Spin Me Round, by Deadline. Jeff Baena is going to direct the movie from a script co-written by Brie and Baena. Brie will represent a manager of an Italian eatery in Bakersfield, California, who gets a trip to Florence, Italy. Given a chance to meet the restaurant chain’s owner, the journey takes an unexpected direction when she turns up with a group of other American franchise managers.
Aubrey Plaza has wedded her longtime boyfriend, director, and screenwriter Jeff Baena. The “Parks & Recreation” star declared Baena “my husband” publicly on an Instagram post for the very first time. Her publicist approved the two had married but gave no details. Plaza, 36, and Baena, 43, have been a couple for about a decade. She has performed in two of his movies, 2014′s “Life After Beth” and 2017′s “The Little Hours,” and is slated to appear in his upcoming “Spin Me Round,” which was the subject of her Insta post.
“So proud of my husband @jeffbaena for visualizing up a new film that takes us to Italia to cause more trouble,” Plaza said besides a photo of the couple. She performs in the new Showtime collection series “Cinema Toast,” which he produced. Plaza is well-known for playing April Ludgate from 2009 – 2015 on the NBC comedy series “Parks and Recreation.” Additionally to his films with Plaza, Baena directed the 2020 Netflix drama “Horse Girl” with Alison Brie, who co-wrote “Spin Me Round” with Baena and co-star with Plaza. In the review of The Little Hours, IGN gave the movie, saying it “succeeds on the talents of its cast” while being “a one-note movie that plays out its joke over & over again.”
