Clark Gregg's recent film Moxie distributed by Netflix, will be released March 3, 2021. Headlined by Josephine Langford, Sydney Park, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Marcia Gay Harden as well as Amy Poehler (Directed and Produced as well).
Vivian (Hadley Robinson), a seemingly shy 16-year-old, has always preferred to keep her head down and fly under the radar. But when the arrival of a new student (Pascual-Peña) forces her to examine the unchecked behavior of her fellow students running rampant at her high school, Vivian realizes she’s fed up.
Inspired by her mother’s (Amy Poehler) rebellious past, Vivian anonymously publishes an underground zine called Moxie to expose bias and wrongdoing in her high school, and unexpectedly sparks a movement.
Now at the center of a revolution, Vivian begins to forge new friendships with other young women and allies, reaching across the divide of cliques and clubs as they learn to navigate the highs and lows of high school together.
Moxie is based off of the novel by Jennifer Mathieu.
When asked about his upcoming film Moxie, Clark said:
"Moxie is a really delightful comedy that Amy Poehler directed and I’m just such a huge fan of hers. It’s really about a mother and a daughter, she played the mother and I got to play her new boyfriend that her daughter has some issues with. I thought it was a really delightful script and I just think she would do no wrong. I was thrilled to get to work with her simultaneously as an actor and to be directed by her."
Clark will have another film coming out this year called Run Sweetheart Run.
Run Sweetheart Run is a Blumhouse produced film that was recently picked up by Amazon once their theater release was delayed due to Covid19. No release for the movie has been announced but when asked about the film, Clark said:
"Run Sweetheart Run is a Blumhouse picture, a really cool movie with this really interesting filmmaker, Shana Feste, and a terrific cast. It’s from a really good part of Blumhouse where they make horror out of social genres. It’s kind of about sexual predators in a way as Get Out was with race issues taken to the horror degree. This is more of the kind of #MeToo predator taken to the horror degree and something I really enjoyed was being with the lead Ella Balinska, who I think is magnificent."
Back in August 2020, it was announced that Clark would join the amazing cast of John Boyega and Darren Criss. This podcast is a 10 part narrative sci-fi thriller, and even though some of the parts are unknown at this time, we do know that John Bodega will be playing Jack Locke who is a mysterious hero with a vendetta who infiltrates a Silicon Valley body hacking startup run. We are also aware that Darren Criss will play the enigmatic CEO (Max Fuller) of the company whose highly secretive creations promise to enhance biology in incredible ways. Of course, every drug has a side effect.
Clark just finished wrapping a secret project based on the pandemic as well as a radio play version of last year's Christopher Boy's Communion which will premiere on BBC Radio.
