DEADLINE – Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick) and Adria Arjona (upcoming Father of the Bride) have signed on to star in the upcoming action-comedy Hitman, from Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater (Boyhood). AGC International is launching international sales on the pic at Cannes and will co-rep domestic rights with CAA Media Finance and Cinetic.
The film written by Linklater and Powell is based on a true story chronicled in a Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth. It has Powell starring as the most sought-after, albeit least trustworthy hitman in Houston. If you pay him to rub out a cheating spouse or a sadistic boss, you’d better watch out: he works for the cops. When he breaks protocol to help a desperate woman (Arjona) trying to get away from an abusive boyfriend, he finds himself living the life of one of his false personas, falling for the woman and flirting with becoming a criminal himself.
Hitman follows Linklater’s casting of Powell in films including Fast Food Nation, Everybody Wants Some!! and Apollo 10½: A Space Age Childhood. The project is Powell’s first as a screenwriter to be produced. AGC Studios is financing the pic, which is heading into production in October. Linklater and Michael Blizzard are producing it for Detour Pictures, alongside Michael Costigan and Jason Bateman for Aggregate Films, and Powell for BarnStorm Productions.
Linklater is represented by CAA and attorneys John Sloss and Jackie Eckhouse; Powell by CAA and Johnson Shapiro; Arjona by CAA, Anonymous Content and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman; Bateman by CAA, Lighthouse Management + Media, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller; and Texas Monthly by CAA.
Adria attended the special screening and reception of Netflix’s “The Lincoln Lawyer on Monday night in Los Angeles, photos have been added into the gallery!
The film premieres on HBO Max on June 16th!
VOGUE – Last week, the Tiffany & Co. Botanica: Blue Book presentation in sunny Miami invited a host of jewelry lovers to view the company’s latest dazzling collection, as well as their archive, which included none other than the iconic Tiffany Yellow Diamond. One of the most stunning guests was Adria Arjona, who donned a black dress by Tove and a glinting Tiffany Victoria diamond necklace. The actor’s love of jewels goes back to her childhood. “I’ve had my ears pierced forever,” she said.
Arjona, like many of those in attendance, was stunned by not only the amount of megawatt jewelry, but also the stories behind them. “It’s like looking at a baby and you can’t stop staring at the baby. That is what I just did with that diamond!” said Arjona about a green cuprian elbaite paraiba and diamond necklace she saw. “It is so impactfully beautiful. Pharrell’s child was there and he was in awe. Even a little kid can see it!”
And while she is an avid fan of Tiffany & Co.—who isn’t?—her love is sentimental. One of her earliest memories is of her mother’s bijoux. “My mom had a pair of favorite earrings and I would play with them while I had a bottle. She never took them off,” she says. “When I was older, I asked her [if I could] try them on and she said, ‘One day, they’ll be yours.’ When I turned 15, she gave them to me.” One of her other favorite pieces of jewelry from when she was a teenager was none other than the ubiquitous Return to Tiffany Heart Tag necklace. “All of my girlfriends had it, and it was the cool thing to have,” she says. “I’m glad I have it and I don’t have to purchase it again!”
She keeps her current favorite, a Tiffany & Co. diamond ring, with her constantly. “It is my prized possession. It is in my purse and it is with me everywhere,” she says. “I don’t trust a safety box!” Of course, though these pieces might come with a hefty price tag, Arjona notes there is an emotional tie to all things gem-encrusted. “There is something about diamonds and jewelry. It is a forever piece, and it is an heirloom for the family now,” she says. “There is poetry behind it. I’m not just buying this necklace, I’m buying it for the next 10 generations.”
