Chance Hurstfield will shortly begin filming a role in an upcoming Netflix feature.
This “ballsy project,” The Eggplant Emoji, centers on a teenager who accidentally cuts off his own penis during a camping trip, and he and his friends must race against time to save the appendage. It’ll be an R-rated bro-com in the vein of Superbad.
Jake Szymanski, the Funny or Die alum who helmed Tour de Pharmacy and 2015’s 7 Days in Hell, has signed on to direct the project,
Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider, creators of digital animated series Gentlemen Lobsters, penned the script for The Eggplan Emoji, with Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock, and Workaholics creators Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck all serving as producers.
