Shut the (palace) front door!
Words by Torey Cassidy
The world shed a tear when Meghan Markle stepped away from her acting career, but thanks to media company Artists Rights Distribution, we are seeing the Duchess of Sussex return to the big screen.
Yes, this is not a drill.
The LA-based company has managed to pick up the North American rights for 2011’s The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down, written and created by Paul Sapiano and featuring a pre-royal Meghan as party girl character Dana.
So, what’s the story? The film centres on a night of partying in Los Angeles. The characters offer tips and tricks on how to navigate the night without fully ruining your life. With tongue-in-cheek advice on subjects like approaching potential hook-ups and which substances shouldn’t be mixed, it’s safe to say that this isn’t Suits.
Despite rumours of its release, it was made a long time ago, with Meghan actually landing her role as Rachel Zane on Suits after filming the project that also features Max Greenfield (New Girl) and Adam Pally (Happy Endings).
Artists Rights Distribution is reportedly looking to distribute the film internationally at the ongoing European Film Market in Berlin, so fingers-crossed we see the re-release before the year is out. Considering, the last movie she appeared in was Dater’s Handbook in 2016; The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down will be received with a warm welcome.
We officially cannot wait!
