What’s Happening:

  • Lionsgate’s English-language remake of The Valet, a hit French film, has been picked up by The Walt Disney Company for global distribution on streaming platforms.

The Valet Plot:

  • “In the film, Weaving plays Olivia, 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.”

What They’re Saying:

  • Richard Wong, Director: “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+.“
  • Eugenio Derbez and Ben Odell, Producing Partners: “The Valet is a multi-generational, multi-cultural comedy in which people from two different worlds discover the humanity in each other.  At 3pas studios we tell stories that try to unite us all and we love partnering with Hulu+ and Disney+ to bring this to the largest global audience possible.”
