Hollywood’s first gay romantic comedy produced by a major movie studio is scheduled to film this Friday on the Upper West Side. An all LGBTQ+ principal cast will be starring in Universal Pictures’ Bros, which is expected to hit the big screen next summer. The movie will star Billy Eichner and Weeds and Scandal star Guillermo Díaz.


The production team peppered the neighborhood with notices, advising that parking will be held to film scenes between West 64th and West 70th Streets from Central Park West to Amsterdam Avenue:

Eichner, best known for “ambushing unsuspecting New Yorkers for his man-on-the-street comedic game show Billy on the Street,” is also sharing the writing duties with the movie’s director, Nicholas Stoller. Stoller’s prior directorial credits include Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Neighbors (and Neighbors 2), Get Him to the Greek, and the TV series “Friends from College.” He also wrote Night School, Sex Tape, and The Five-Year Engagement, to name a few. Judd Apatow and Trainwreck’s Josh Church will serve as executive producers alongside Stoller.

Bros will be released August 12, 2022, according to Universal Pictures.
