The first trailer and poster has been released for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, an upcoming true-story comedy led by Tina Fey.
W.T.F. tells the story of Kim Barker, an American journalist who found more than she bargained for when her job took her to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Based on Barker’s own memoir, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot looks to offer Fey a fantastic role to show off her skills in both comedy and more serious fare. There’s a solid supporting cast, including Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina and Billy Bob Thornton, and more confidence comes with the fact that Barker’s memoir was adapted by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt co-creator and executive producer Robert Carlock.
It looks like a fun outing with a thing or two to say among its crowd-pleasing elements. Fingers crossed.
Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who were at the helm of I Love You Phillip Morris, Crazy Stupid Love, and this year’s Will Smith & Margot Robbie-starring crime-romance Focus.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot will be hitting the U.S. on March 4 and Australia on March 17.
