A Deadly Adoption is real and on Lifetime!

In a movie so real everyone thought it was fake (not too surprising, considering the baffling random PR when it comes to Lifetime movies), partially because the news leaked on April 1st, Will Ferrel and Kristen Wiig made a secret Lifetime movie called A Deadly Adoption, and said movie now airs this Saturday, July 20th on Lifetime! A Deadly Adoption is part of Lifetime’s celebration of 25 years of original movies, though what else is going to be part of this celebration is still a mystery for now (but I’m sure things will be randomly declared part of the celebration soon enough!)

Anyway, this looks amazing, and everyone who’s anyone who pretends they know anything about Lifetime movies will be watching, so you better watch as well, or else those Buzzfeed animated gif articles about the film won’t be as funny. You don’t want that to happen, do you? I didn’t think so!

Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award nominee Will Ferrell (“Everything Must Go,” “Stranger than Fiction”) and Oscar® and Golden Globe nominee Kristen Wiig (“Skeleton Twins,” “Bridesmaids”) star in the highly-anticipated Lifetime movie, “A Deadly Adoption,” premiering Saturday, June 20 at 8pm ET/PT.

Inspired by a true story, “A Deadly Adoption” is a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Ferrell and Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes, “90210”) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hopes of adopting her unborn child.

A Mar Vista Entertainment Production, “A Deadly Adoption” is produced by National Picture Show. Rachel Lee Goldenberg (“Escape from Polygamy,” “Love at the Christmas Table”) directs from a script written by Andrew Steele (“Casa De Mi Padre,” “The Spoils of Babylon”). The film is executive produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Sharon Bordas, Fernando Szew, Andrew Steele and Jessica Elbaum, and produced by Adam Silver, Fritz Manger and Max Osswald. Mar Vista will handle international distribution of the movie.

A Deadly Adoption Lifetime



Her movie Spike Jonze
Written and directed by Spike Jonze
Her movie Spike Jonze
Life is a fraud. Her brings us the tale of a man who falls in love with his computer operating system. But it’s more than some weirdo making out with his iPod, Her is a rare film that explores the modern increase in social isolation and loneliness that no one talks about. Spike Jonze brings his brand of exploring humanity to the near future to look at the state of relationships today, and layers everything with a mix of genuine and hoax that transcends the real.
Her movie Samantha
Theodore Twombly is a lonely writer, recently divorced from his wife, though he’s never signed the papers to finalize it. Theodore’s job has him composing personal letters to people from other people, advertised as handwritten but actually printed by a machine. The entire enterprise is a fake personalization and fake product. Theodore has written for some of the clients for so long he knows their quirks and puts touches in the letters that reference other letters. In essence he has a pseudo-personal relationship with these people, despite never really meeting them or having any contact outside of instructions from work. It isn’t a real relationship, he’s just given access to enough of their relationship to craft a forgery.
Her movie Amy Adams
Honestly, I am personally horrified at the concept of handwritten letters created by a third party. The entire concept is a whole new layer of deceit and lack of genuine personal connection. I’d be insulted if I was given a letter through that company. Theodore is more connected to the people he writes about than they are to each other, and than he is to anyone else except his friend Amy.
