Who’s in it: Courtney B. Vance, Niecy Nash, Mamoudou Athie, and Matt McGorry have been attached to the movie.
Why put it on your list: This is another movie that people don’t really know much about, but we’re drawn to the cast. Anyone who has watched Claws knows that Nash brings it to everything she’s in. And yes, we’re ready for Uncorked.
Prentice Penny has written and directed the movie for Netflix, and there’s a major list of executive producers that will help to make sure this is a movie worth your time. Sadly, we don’t have a release date, but we do know that filming started in November 2018 and has wrapped. It’s crossed the ocean, filming in Memphis and Paris.
So, what’s it about? Uncorked is about a man who strives to become a master sommelier thanks to his love for wine. However, it’s not going to be easy when his father’s expectations of taking over the family barbecue business get in the way.
Expect plenty of laughs and heartfelt moments throughout the movie. After all, Penny has worked on the likes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Happy Endings so knows how to bring in a mixture of emotions.
