1,2,3,4, I won't take no anymore. 5,6,7,8 Now we don’t have to because they’re reuniting. Fine. That cheer totally doesn’t work. But the sentiment is true because just the thought of Natasha Lyonne reuniting with her “But I’m a Cheerleader” director Jamie Babbit is making me want to shake some pom-poms.
The women will reunite for “Fresno,” what sounds like a dark comedy about two sisters who wind up in the title city cleaning hotel rooms together. Natasha plays the “stoic lesbian” sister and Judy Greer plays the “sex addict with no impulse control and a long history of poor decisions.” According to Deadline:
“When they accidentally kill a guest, the sisters are forced to confront their unpleasant co-dependent relationship.”So it’s “Sunshine Cleaning” with more murder and more overt lesbianism, hopefully?
The movie is just brimming with talented gay lady bona fides. In addition to Jamie, the script comes from out “Portlandia” writer Karey Dornetto and is being produced by Jamie’s ex, Andrea Sperling, who is also producing the much buzzed about Amazon show “Transparent.” Yeah, Fresno is that gay. No word yet if Anne Heche will show up, too, searching for the mother ship.
