Safdie seems within the undertaking too as producer Dougie, who seemingly guides Fielder’s Asher in the direction of the fateful money-snatching encounter and is later proven within the trailer dismissing the ethical qualms of Stone’s Whitney. The trailer presents the present as bordering on horror, but it surely’s clear there’s comedy right here too. The present’s title alone, “Flipanthropy,” is ridiculous, as are the boxy, reflective metallic homes Whitney builds in the course of neighborhoods predominantly made up of individuals of shade. The present appears taken with exploring gentrification and white savior complexes, as we see Whitney trying awkward whereas visiting an Indigenous artwork exhibit and calling Española, New Mexico her dwelling, and listen to Dougie assert that the undertaking “helps the group” and is “proof against criticism.”
An official plot synopsis for the present additionally reveals that Asher and Whitney try to have a child, an endeavor that certainly will not be made simpler by a rising sense of paranoia that appears to set in as soon as the couple assume they’re cursed. It is frankly unclear whether or not “The Curse” will probably be successfully scary, humorous, or each, but it surely’s apparent that it will do what Fielder does greatest — alienate viewers in essentially the most artistic method potential. All three stars are on board as government producers, as are Dave McCary and Ali Herting. The primary episodes of the A24 co-production are set to debut tonight on the New York Movie Pageant earlier than changing into out there on Paramount + with Showtime on November 10, 2024.
