A Movie Starring a Pre-Royal Meghan Markle Might Be Getting Rereleased
Meghan Markle may have left acting behind when she got engaged to Prince Harry, but a 2011 film she made was reportedly just picked up for distribution.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is called The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down, and Artist Rights Distribution picked it up for release in North America in 2019.
Markle stars as a girl named Dana in the comedy, which revolves around a night of partying in Los Angeles. The IMDb description says it’s “funny and somewhat outrageous,” and that it “gives partiers helpful tips about which substances should not be mixed, how to approach potential hook-ups, avoid undesirables, and basically have a good time without completely destroying yourself.”
The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down would have been filmed around 2010 — right before Markle’s big break as Rachel Zane on USA Network’s Suits, which premiered in 2011. Other actors, such as a pre-Mindy Project Adam Pally and a pre-New Girl Max Greenfield, star alongside the Duchess in the comedy.
Details on when and how the film will be released have not yet been revealed. Artist Rights Distribution recently released the comedy Driving While Black, which was available for select theatrical screenings, or on-demand online and through Fandango Now.
Following Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry and subsequent catapult to worldwide fame, many of her older projects, such as her time on the TV game show Deal or No Deal and her two Hallmark Channel movies, resurfaced in the press. She ended her run on Suits at the end of season 7 in 2018.
