Connie and Carla is the comedy that proves if you follow your dream, there’s no telling what you’ll become.
Nia Vardalos, the Oscar-nominated writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the highest grossing romantic comedy and independent film of all time and the fifth highest grossing film of 2002, follows up that smash hit with the new comedy Connie and Carla, again in double roles as both screenwriter and star (as well as executive-producing). Starring alongside Vardalos is Academy Award and Tony nominee Toni Collette (About a Boy, The Sixth Sense), both of whom are joined by a multifaceted cast that includes STEPHEN SPINELLA (Tony winner for Broadway’s Angels in America), DASH MIHOK (Baz Luhrmann’s William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet), ALEC MAPA (Broadway’s M. Butterfly) and David Duchovny (Evolution, The X Files).
Heading the team bringing Vardalos’ script to the screen is television comedy veteran MICHAEL LEMBECK, who scored a hit with his feature film directorial debut, The Santa Clause 2. Spyglass Entertainment’s (Seabiscuit, Bruce Almighty, The Sixth Sense), ROGER BIRNBAUM, GARY BARBER and JONATHAN GLICKMAN serve as producers. Vardalos, RITA WILSON (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and PETER SAFRAN (My Baby’s Daddy) serve as executive producers, with WARREN CARR (TNT’s Door to Door) co-producing.
Charged with creating the manic world of women pretending to be men pretending to be women is a list of behind-the-camera talent that includes director of photography RICHARD GREATREX, B.S.C. (Oscar-nominated for Shakespeare in Love); production designer JASNA STEFANOVIC (Honey); film editor DAVID FINFER (The Santa Clause 2); costume designer RUTH MYERS (two-time Oscar nominee for Emma and The Addams Family); and composer RANDY EDELMAN (The Whole Nine Yards).
