STORM ALERT

Bianca Del Rio’s Film Debut In “Hurricane Bianca,” A “Drag Queen Revenge Comedy”

f494408427f85452688dace9b47f7a9fRuPaul‘s Drag Race season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio vowed to never make a music video once the competition had finished, but she never said anything about a feature-length film.

The comedy queen is poised to make her silver screen debut in a “drag queen revenge comedy” about “a New York teacher who who moves to a small town in Texas, gets fired for being gay, and returns disguised as a mean ‘lady’ to get revenge on the people who were nasty to him!” Think Mrs. Doubtfire meets Simon Cowell, starring a foul-mouthed “drag queen with a heart of gold and a Rolodex of hate.”

The premise of the film seems to be politically motivated. “By the way, it’s still totally legal to fire gay people in 29 states,” Del Rio says. “It’s 2014! Come on!”

The film is titled Hurricane Bianca, and it’s already partially complete. The film’s director, CBS producer Matt Kugelman, says he’s been working on it at a modest pace for years, but recently launched an effort to raise more funds for production through an Indiegogo campaign because “so many of you have got to know and love Bianca.”

The project had reached 16 percent of the $175,000 goal at time of posting. Social media interactions with Bianca are being offered in exchange for donations, and fans can even get a personalized insult video for the bargain price of $1,000.

Check out an early reel for the film below, and check out Hurricane Bianca‘s Indiegogo page for more info.

    Lol bargain price. I have plenty of other uses for $1000 I can think of.

    It’s not “Mrs. Doubtfire meets Simon Cowell…” It’s Mrs. Doubtfire stars in the remake of “The Girl Most Likely To…” Written by the Original Queen of Mean…Joan Rivers and starring the incomparable Stockard Channing. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070112/

    Don’t get me wrong, I like Bianca Del Rio. I think he is very talented and will work to release a truly funny well made film. Like Steve Jobs said “Good artists barrow and great artists steal.” .Besides there hasn’t been an original idea in Hollywood since…since…since…Well I can’t remember that far back But it’s a long time!

    Bianca dear…you are in desperate need of a make-under. The clown look is not working for you.

  • Qjersey

    @WuzUpYall: Bianca is a DRAG QUEEN, not a trans women going for beauty and sex appeal as their um, talent. Yes talking about you Ms. Fish, Carmen.

    @Qjersey: [email protected]Qjersey: REALLY!?! With the 80 Billion articles about trans issues you have to bring that f’d up argument here! REALLY!?! I bet you find ways to bring it up when ordering at a drive thru…”I’d like the fillet of naturally born fish…not like you CARMEN and a diet coke”

    Reminds me of those “Miss Nelson is Missing” books. Should be cute.

  • BrianZ

    Yep, I hope Bianca slays it. Bitch is funny as hell! <3

    @WuzUpYall:

    Try again, ~dear. She’s described herself as a clown forever.

  • DarkZephyr

    @Lvng1tor: Carmen is a member of the Drag Race Alumni, so it is not out of the realm of all that is reasonable to bring her up in the comment section of an article about other members of the Drag Race Alumni. I didn’t see him criticize her status as a Trans* woman, all I saw was references to how she seemed to behave on Season 3 of Drag Race. I’m curious to know what has you so up in arms here.

  • Lvng1tor

    @DarkZephyr: Seriously? hahahahahahahaha. @Qjersey: Response was just ridiculous so I made fun of it….your’s is just…just… I mean really? Come on! hahahahahaha! Are you for real!?! Are you?

  • Teeth

    Love her. But wasn’t this done by Joan Rivers with “The Girl Most Likely To”?

  • Lvng1tor

    @Teeth: I’m still amazed that not one gay site has had the balls to bring that up….come on they have to know about it. For me a fresh take on a classic is great as long as it’s done well and they really bring something new to it…so why is no one talking about it? Mrs. Doubtfire my a$$.
