Filming wraps on ‘Bar Fight’ with Melissa Fumero and Rachel Bloom as dueling exes
Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Robot Chicken), Luka Jones (Shrill), and Julian Gant (Call Me Kat, Real Steel) are are set to star in the comedy Bar Fight, directed and written by Jim Mahoney (Klaus). The film wrapped production this week in Los Angeles.
Bar Fight follows two exes, Nina (Fumero) and Allen (Jones), who split everything in their lives 50/50 after their break-up to avoid any drama – that is, everything except for their favorite local bar. Nina and Allen must compete in a ridiculous, tavern-style custody battle for their prized watering hole, in which lines will be drawn, sides will be chosen, and beers will be drunken.
Bar Fight is presented by Particular Crowd and Ingenious Media, and was produced by Sarah Gabriel and Mark Goldberg of Signature Films, and James Harris and Mark Lane of Tea Shop Productions, with executive producers Tomás Yankelevich, Peter Bevan, and Mariana Sanjurjo from Particular Crowd and Simon Williams and Jamie Jessop from Ingenious Media.
Bloom is represented by UTA and Corner Booth Entertainment. Fumero and Jones are represented by UTA. Gant is represented by The Gersh Agency, Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman, and Brillstein Partners. Mahoney is represented by CAA, Andrew Deane at Industry Entertainment, and attorney Ryan Nord at The Nord Group.
Signature Films is currently filming Timothy Scott Bogart’s Spinning Gold and is in post-production on Jamie Adams’ She is Love starring Haley Bennett, Sam Riley and Marisa Abela; James Nunn’s One Shot starring Ryan Phillippe, Ashley Greene and Scott Adkins; and Paul Andrew Williams’ Bull starring Neil Maskell and David Hayman.
