Chris Geere to join Amy Schumer in upcoming film ‘Kinda Pregnant’


The world of streaming is abuzz with the latest casting news as English actor Chris Geere gears up to bring his comedic charm to the upcoming Netflix romantic comedy, ‘Kinda Pregnant’, where he will star opposite the American stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer. This new addition promises to heighten the anticipation for an engaging on-screen dynamic in what is expected to be a unique blend of laughter and romantic entanglements.

Set to navigate the unpredictable waters of love and friendship, ‘Kinda Pregnant’ introduces audiences to Lainy, portrayed by Schumer, whose sense of envy towards her expectant best friend leads her down a path of hilarious deception. In an unexpected twist, Lainy finds herself donning a fake baby bump, a ruse that becomes all the more complicated when she crosses paths with the man who just might be her perfect match.

Chris Geere, 42, comes to the project with an impressive résumé steeped in both drama and comedy, from his memorable performance in the electrically charged ‘Detective Pikachu’ to being lauded for his role in FXX’s acerbic sitcom ‘You’re the Worst’. His capacity to weave through various emotional tones has earned him critical acclaim, shaping him as the ideal addition to the shenanigans that ‘Kinda Pregnant’ promises to deliver.

Geere’s other notable television credits include standout guest spots in shows like the family-centered ‘Single Parents’, the heartwarming drama ‘A Million Little Things’, and the beloved Emmy-winning series ‘Modern Family’. Each role has offered him the chance to further showcase his versatility and comedic timing, traits that will undoubtedly enrich the narrative of ‘Kinda Pregnant’.

At the helm of the film is director Tyler Spindel, whose background in crafting comedy shines brightly, with an expectation to deftly balance the humor and warmth inherent in the genre. Working from a script penned by Julie Paiva, Spindel will guide a story filled with misunderstandings, heart, and probably a fair share of awkward encounters, as the film navigates the often-turbulent realm of romantic comedy.

Schumer, also 42, arrives at ‘Kinda Pregnant’ maintaining a robust relationship with Netflix, following her self-directed special ‘Amy Schumer: Emergency Contact’. Her fearless comedic voice and candor have paved the way for her to take on roles that challenge traditional rom-com archetypes, and her participation in this film is eagerly anticipated by fans and critics alike.

With Happy Madison’s production team behind the scenes, ‘Kinda Pregnant’ is poised to capitalize on Schumer’s established comedic persona and Geere’s ascending star power. The film’s premise is teeming with potential for laugh-out-loud moments and heartfelt revelations as it explores the complexity of chasing dreams, embracing imperfections, and finding love in the most unexpected situations.

As the project is tailored for Netflix’s expansive audience, ‘Kinda Pregnant’ stands as a test case for the evolving tastes of viewers who crave original content that’s both relatable and entertaining. The film is situated within the broader landscape of English and World cinema, where streaming platforms continue to rewrite the rules of distribution and audience engagement.

‘Kinda Pregnant’ is poised to join the ranks of Netflix’s increasingly diverse catalogue, setting the stage for a film that conveys the right mix of comedy and tenderness. As pre-production moves forward and with a cast that pairs Geere’s British charm with Schumer’s raw American wit, this romantic comedy is already shaping to be a much-talked-about addition to Netflix’s robust lineup. Audiences around the globe can look forward to experiencing the hijinks and warmth that ‘Kinda Pregnant’ has in store, as it readies for its streaming debut.
