4. Blithe Spirit (2020)
‘Blithe Spirit’ is an upcoming comedy that tells the story of a seance that goes wrong. Normally, when we see seances go wrong, it results in disasters that are chronicled in horror movies. However, for this one writer, the seance becomes an awkward beginning wherein he has to live with two of his wives. Notably, the film is based on the 1941 play of the same name.
The premise follows an author who suffers from writer’s block. A spiritual medium helps him reconnect with his creative side, but in the process ends up summoning his dead wife.

The movie is bound to be funny with the likes of Isla Fisher on board. Castmembers include Judi Dench and Dan Stevens, so we can expect some top-notch acting. Since the movie is slated for a May 1, 2020 release in the UK, we expect the US release date to come soon after.
3. Arrested Development (2003-)
‘Arrested Development’ is an acclaimed comedy show that is currently on Netflix. The plot follows Michael Bluth, played by Jason Bateman, who tries to take care of his family and their wealthy tastes. The Bluth family used to be wealthy, but following the arrest of the patriarch, they have fallen on hard times financially. This has however not curbed their enthusiasm for lavish lifestyles and it falls upon Michael to keep them in line.
This is no easy job since most members of the family are greedy, shallow and materialistic and are only concerned about their own well being. Isla Fisher first appeared in Season 4 of this show as Rebel Alley. She plays the role of someone who is in touch with her wild side but has a child of her own. Rebel has a romantic interest in both Michael Bluth and his son, George Michael Booth. Rebel’s character grew quite popular and she became a recurring cast member in Season 4 and we will see more of her in the upcoming seasons as well.
2. Unplugging (TBA)
In an age when social media and internet access dictates various stages of our lives, it is not too much to imagine that relationships hit the same slump eventually as well. ‘Unplugging’ is the upcoming romantic comedy that follows this tale. The movie comes from Debra Neil-Fisher and has been written by Brad Morris and Matt Walsh.
‘Unplugging’ follows Dan and Jeanine Dewerson who realize that their married life is lacking the spark they used to have. Their daughter happens to be addicted to her iPad as well. However, Dan will not be having any of that, and books a getaway for themselves, away from technology, and in the lap of mother nature. However, such an escape is easier said than done.
Once they are away from any internet access, the dream getaway soon turns sour. There are some unearthly encounters, which might result due to the strong edibles. The two also face cranky locals and a one-eyed dog they cannot get rid of. Usually, when the reality is disappointing, we choose to lose ourselves in social media and the internet. However, this option has been consciously foreclosed by the couple. Now, to put off the boredom springing from this digital detox, the two are forced to try and reconnect with each other, in an attempt to maintain their sanity.
The premise is humorous, and Fisher will be sure to deliver a strong performance, in order to remain memorable in the role. The movie is in pre-production stages and does not have a release date yet.
