Good Fortune: Seth Rogen & Keanu Reeves to Lead Aziz Ansari’s Directorial Debut
Lionsgate has announced the leads for the comedy movie Good Fortune, which will be directed, written, and led by Parks and Recreation vet Aziz Ansari in his feature directorial debut.
The film, which will also star Seth Rogen (The Super Mario Bros. Movie) and Keanu Reeves (John Wick series), has been greenlit and will be starting principal photography in Los Angeles next month.
“We have indeed found good fortune with this film,” Joe Drake, chair of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group stated. “We love the script and believe strongly in Aziz as both a performer and a director. And when you add in Seth and Keanu — two incredible world-class talents — toplining alongside Aziz, this has the potential to be a very special film for us. We moved quickly to land this project once it was available.”
Good Fortune is being produced by Anthony Katagas, Alan Yang, and Ansari, and will be overseen by Brady Fujikawa and Jon Humphrey at Lionsgate. Plot details are currently being kept under wraps.
Ansari is a seven-time Emmy nominee and two-time winner. He is known for playing Tom Haverford throughout all seven seasons of Parks and Recreation and for co-creating and writing the Netflix series Master of None.
