Will Ferrell’s Gloria Sanchez Productions Is Producing a Movie About a Newly Single Woman

By

Earlier this year, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions added a female-centric label called Gloria Sanchez, and the company just added a new project to its slate. Variety reports that Gloria Sanchez has teamed up with The Weinstein Company to produce a comedy called Plus One, which follows “a woman who comes out of a long-term relationship only to realize that all her friends have married off — leaving her with an oversharing wild card as the only option for a wing woman.” No casting decisions have been revealed yet, but the script comes from April Prosser, whose screenplay The One That Got Away was named on the Black List in 2012. “We’re thrilled to be on board with this hilarious and smart film by talented up-and-comer April Prosser,” Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “Her script drew one of the strongest responses from our team that I’ve seen in a while.” For more on Gloria Sanchez Productions, check out our interview with founder Jessica Elbaum from February.
