Hulu/Disney+ Acquires Comedy ‘The Valet’

Disney has acquired the Lionsgate’s English-language remake of Francis Veber’s French feature hit film “The Valet.”  The upcoming comedy will be released in the United States on Hulu in summer 2022 and it will be released internationally on Disney+ as a Star Original.

“The Valet” is a romantic comedy and stars Samara Weaving (Ready Or Not), Eugenio Derbez (Overboard, Instructions Not Included), and Max Greenfield (New Girl, The Neighborhood).  The cast also includes Betsy Brandt, Marisol Nichols, Noemi Gonzalez, Carmen Salinas, Ravi Patel, Tiana Okoye, Diany Rodriguez, Armando Hernández, Carlos Santos, Amaury Nolasco, John Pirucello and Alex Fernandez.   Reggaeton superstar Lunay will be making his acting debut in the film.

The film follows a movie star who enlists Antonio (Derbez) – a parking valet – to pose as her lover to cover for a relationship with a married man (Greenfield). As a valet, the hard-working Antonio usually flies under the radar but his ruse with Olivia thrusts him into the spotlight and brings him to see himself more clearly than ever before.

Richard Wong (Come as You Are), who is directing the film, said in a statement: “What struck me most about The Valet is how closely my family resembled Antonio’s family and telling their story was like telling mine. It’s message of unity, seeing each other and human connection, is something the world could use right now and no one does that better than Hulu and Disney+.”

“The Valet” is written by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher who both worked on Overboard together.
