Thanks to my friend at Adoring Gugu Mbatha Raw we have some photos from Michiel’s upcoming movie, Irreplaceable You. Make sure you watch it on Netflix on February 16!
COLLIDER – First of all, I just want to note that in the press release for Netflix’s new movie Irreplaceable You, the tagline is: “Fall in love with childhood sweethearts Abbie and Sam, just in time to watch them try to say goodbye.” Ice cold! But yeah, that should set up your expectations for the movie, which stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror) and Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones) as Abbie and Sam, just as Abbie receives a devastating diagnosis that changes the course of their future together.
Because Abbie is concerned that Sam won’t be able to fend for himself in this wide world as a 30-something male, she goes to elaborate lengths to set him up with a new girlfriend. Seems unlikely, but stick with me here — the lesson is to not focus on the what-ifs of the future, but to live in the now. Gasp!
Anyway, what I’m saying is: get ready to cry. Irreplaceable You premieres Friday, February 16th on Netflix, and also stars Steve Coogan, Kate McKinnon, and Christopher Walken. The movie is also the feature directorial debut of former Veep producer and director Stephanie Laing. Check out the trailer below:
VARIETY – Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Michiel Huisman will star in the romantic drama “Irreplaceable You.”
“Veep” helmer Stephanie Laing will direct from a script by Bess Wohl.
The film follows Abbie and Sam, soul mates who were destined to be together until death got in the way.
Jonathan Tropper and Farah Abushwesha are producing the movie, with The Exchange handling international sales. Production is set to start sometime next month.
Mbatha-Raw has a busy year ahead of her, starting with Disney’s highly anticipated, live-action “Beauty and the Beast” reboot, which opens on March 17. She will then appear in the untitled “Cloverfield” sequel “God Particle” — opposite David Oyelowo — and Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” adaptation. Mbatha-Raw was most recently seen in the gun-control film “Miss Sloane” with Jessica Chastain.
Huisman cut his teeth on the TV circuit, appearing in shows such as David Simon’s “Treme” and “Nashville,” before landing the role of Daario Naharis, the hired gun and love interest of Emilia Clarke’s character on “Game of Thrones.” He was most recently seen in “The Age of Adaline” and “The Invitation.”
He can also be seen on the Discovery Channel’s “Harley and the Davidsons.”
Mbatha-Raw is repped by CAA, Authentic, and Curtis Brown in the U.K. Huisman is repped by UTA, Authentic and Conway van Gelder Grant.
