Margaret Qualley and Ethan Coen are all set to reunite for a brand new Focus Features movie named Honey Don't!, after their recent collaboration on Drive-Away Dolls, which is scheduled to release on February 23, 2024. Joining these two will be actors Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) and Chris Evans (The Gray Man), who have also worked together in the Justin Reardon-directed rom-com Playing It Cool in 2014.
Tricia Cooke, a film editor and wife of Coen, renowned for her works in O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Barton Fink, has co-written this script alongside her husband. The duo has also collaborated on the screenplay, production, and editing of their Drive-Away Dolls. As of now, the plot details and release date are not yet revealed, but as per Deadline, it will be a comedy-genre movie similar to their upcoming 2024 movie.
The filming is said to begin in March 2024 in New Mexico. Honey Don't! will be produced by Tim Bevan, Coen, Cooke, Eric Fellner, and Robert Graf.
Speaking of the cast, Qualley is a prime-time Emmy-nominated actress who was last seen playing Felicity in the 11-time Academy Award-nominated movie, Poor Things. She also has two more projects on her plate apart from Drive-Away Dolls, which are the American horror movie The Substance and the Emma Stone-led Kinds of Kindness.
After playing fans’ beloved superhero, Captain America, in the MCU, Chris Evans has lately been more into playing morally gray characters, following his most recent projects, The Gray Man and Pain Hustlers. He will resume playing an antagonistic role in Honey Don't! too.
Aside from Honey Don't!, Aubrey Plaza will also be making her MCU debut with Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, a spin-off of the Disney+ series WandaVision. She will be portraying Rio Vidal. Francis Ford Coppola directed Megalopolis, and the computer-animated movie The Ark and the Aardvark are some other projects that she will be starring in next.
