Everything we know about A24’s ‘Dick: The Musical’, starring Megan Thee Stallion

The flick is set to be A24’s first ever film-musical.

As Talk To Me continues to be a surprise hit at the box office – having already surpassed $10 million this weekend – A24 has unveiled an upcoming venture that is unlike anything we’ve seen before from the production company. Dicks: The Musical is A24’s first film-musical, and the trailer features a star-studded cast of characters, including Megan Thee Stallion and Bowen Yang, alongside the film’s writers, Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming flick so far.

The plot revolves around Sharp and Jackson’s characters, two top salesmen who work at a firm run by Megan Thee Stallion’s yet-to-be-named character. After discovering that they are long-lost identical twins, the two embark on a mission to reunite their parents, played by Nathan Lane and Megan Mullally.

The slapstick, chaotic trailer also stars Bowen Yang as God and features snippets of original music by Megan and lots of camp and over-the-top numbers. Also, look out for the Sewer Boys, a pair of gross, gargoyle-esque, dancing twins locked away in a cage (no, really). The film is directed by Larry Charles, known for his work with Sacha Baron Cohen on Borat and Brüno, so expect the same level of insane humour.

The film won’t be the first time we’ve seen Megan take her talents on-screen, as she previously worked with Teyana Taylor and Dave East for the three-episode HOTTIEWEEN YouTube series. Last year, she hosted Saturday Night Live, had a guest spot on the Disney+ series She-Hulk, and revived her Tina Snow alter ego on an episode of P-Valley

The addition of Dicks: The Musical to A24’s release slate further bolsters the distributor’s fall schedule, which already includes Locarno breakout Medusa Deluxe, Sofia Coppola’s biopic Priscilla, Zac Efron and Jeremy Allen White’s wrestling drama The Iron Claw and The Zone of Interest.

Dicks: The Musical is set to release in cinemas on September 29th.
