Eggplant Emoji Movie From Ben Stiller & Creators of Workaholics Starts Filming

Ben Stiller’s latest project, a Netflix original called The Eggplant Emoji movie starts filming in Vancouver and area today.

Eggplant Emoji producer Ben Stiller

The Eggplant Emoji Movie (Feature)

The Eggplant Emoji movie is an R-rated comedy, which has been drawing comparisons to Superbad. It centres around a group of friends on a perfectly normal camping excursion; that is, until one of them accidentally cuts off their own penis. Determined to save their friend’s manhood, the group races against time to get him help.

Workaholics creators Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Kyle Newacheck will also serve as producers alongside Ben Stiller. They recently wrapped up production on another Netflix feature called Game Over, Man! in Vancouver earlier this year.

The Eggplant Emoji movie is scheduled to continue filming in Vancouver and area until October 5th and is expected to premiere in 2018.
