Netflix has set Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall to star in Naked, a remake of the 2000 Swedish film Naken. The romantic comedy reunites Wayans with Helmer Michael Tiddes, who directed him in A Haunted House and most recently Fifty Shades of Black. Cory Koller, Wayans and Rick Alvarez wrote the script. Netflix has set the film to start production next month in Charleston, SC, to premiere globally on the site in 2017. Wayans becomes the latest film star to take a film to Netflix.
Wayans will star as Rob Anderson, a charming man-child who wakes up on his wedding day, naked in an elevator. He recreates the hour before the ceremony, over and over again.
Wayans said in a statement,
"The response I’ve gotten from fans worldwide to my films on Netflix has been overwhelming, and I’m thrilled to be working with them on an original film. Also, I’m excited to be working with Regina again."
