Pally is slated to play Billy in the film. Billy, once the most popular kid in high school, returns ten years later only to see his fall from grace. His high school crush (presumably played by Bloom) is instead dating the former school outcast. But when the outcast's mother mysteriously dies, Billy is determined to prove that it was murder.
The two have described Most Likely To Murder as “Rear Window for stoners" — a reference to the 1954 film starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly. In it, a photographer confined to a wheelchair passes the time by spying on his neighbors, eventually convincing himself that one of them has committed murder.
Both Bloom and Pally are on board to produce the film along with Petra Ahmann. Gregor and Mand will take the roles of executive producers.
Bloom took to Twitter to express her excitement for the film, making sure to congratulate "the father of her dog" on his directing debut.
No word on when we should expect the movie, or even when filming will begin, but this is a pretty foolproof comedy team. Until then we can get our Rachel Bloom fix by catching up on both seasons (now on Netflix), as well as learning all the songs from the series thanks to the free sheet music released back in November — because, let's be honest, no release date would be soon enough.
