So it would be extremely shocking to know that some person doesn’t know Shailene Diann Woodley.

Well now for some good news for my dear readers and all the fans of Shailene Diann Woodley out there.
Recent news states that she will be a co-star with Jack Whitehall in the comedy film Robots, which comes from Borat writer Anthony Hines. So that is pretty exciting news for you all. I am sure you all would love to see more of Shailene on the big screen.
So now what exactly is this new movie all about? Well, the screenplay is penned in a way that will portray how a womanizer and a gold digger learn about humanity only when they are both forced to team up together and pursue the robot doubles of themselves, who have apparently fallen in love and ran away together. That surely is an interesting screenplay after all it is co-directed by Oscar-nominated writer Anthony Hines and Casper Christensen. Whereas Rocket Science is handling international sales during the Virtual Cannes Market, while CAA Media Finance is co-representing the film’s domestic distribution rights with Cassian Elwes’ Elevated who is producing with Stephen Hamel at Company Films. The production is said to begin in August in New Mexico as per the reports.
The most interesting part is that Shailene Woodley will be replacing Emma Roberts who was originally starred for the role and was supposed to play alongside Jack Whitehall but due to some reason, Emma left the cast and Shailene came in place of her which definitely made Anthony Hines very happy as he even said that ‘At a time when comedies are needed more than ever, I couldn’t be more delighted than to have Shailene and Jack team up to play the leads in this movie. So now with so much good news let’s just hope that even amidst this covid pandemic situation they can begin with their production safely and we can watch this movie in the theaters on the big screen with friends and family instead of staying in and watching it while sitting at home. As soon as things normalize it’s better for all of us.
