New Awkwafina & Karen Gillan Action-Comedy

Team Stardust

The Jumanji co-stars have been tapped to co-star in a new action-comedy film called Shelly. Shelly will be developed by Amazon and directed by Jude Weng (The Good Place, Black-ish).

The story revolves around an assassin (Awkwafina) who is hired to take out someone—someone who just happens to be her old high school bully (Gillan). As fate would have it, Gillan’s awful prank on Awkwafina’s character at their high school prom was the reason that she became an assassin. While the assassin thinks the job will be easy, things quickly become complicated when the two foes become unlikely friends.

While we wait for Shelly to be developed, we can look forward to watching Awkwafina in the upcoming Breaking News in Yuba County, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Raya and the Last Dragon, and The Little Mermaid remake. If you are a Karen Gillan fan, make sure to check out this year’s Call of the Wild and the upcoming action flick Gunpowder Milkshake.
