Kristen Bell Comedy ‘Queenpins’ Lands Huge $20 Million Deal With Paramount+

We’ve told you about the upcoming comedy ‘Queenpins‘ before, mainly to fill you in on the impressive cast, which includes Kristen Bell, Vince Vaughn, Joel McHale, Paul Walter Hauser and Bebe Rexha.

The movie was inspired by a true story and follows a suburban housewife played by Bell, who is fed up with being dismissed and overlooked by her husband and society.

She decides to take back control of her life by starting an illegal coupon club. Her creation ends up scamming millions of dollars from big food companies while delivering deals to millions of fellow coupon clippers.

The fact that this is based on a true story, or “inspired” by one, makes me want to watch it even more. I love the idea of some small-town housewife sticking it to the man.

Anyway, the film recently sold to Paramount+ and Showtime in a pretty intense bidding war. The deal is reportedly worth $20 million, which ain’t so bad considering the budget was considerably less than that.

STXfilms will first distribute the film theatrically, and distribute international through its global partners and finish international sales at the upcoming Cannes Market.

Not entirely sure when it’s supposed to be released, but we’ll keep you posted. Maybe a trailer will drop soon.
