“Depraved” will not hit theaters till 2024, however Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo are already teasing followers with behind-the-scenes pictures of Glenda and Elphaba hugging — sans costume, for now. Each of the actors cleverly buried the black and white picture of them at what seemed to be a read-through in picture dumps on Instagram.
For her half, Grande slipped a photograph of her laughing together with her costar in on the finish of a carousel that includes nature pictures and a snap of her husband Dalton Gomez. In the meantime, Erivo shared the identical picture and a video of her embracing the “Thank U, Subsequent” singer in a random Instagram submit that includes the whole lot from a turtle to her pink sneakers.
Grande, who is ready to play Good Witch Glenda within the film adaptation of the hit Broadway play, commented on Erivo’s submit, “simply past. i really like youuuu!” In the meantime, Erivo, who’s taking part in Elphaba, left a candy message for her costar on Grande’s submit, as effectively. “I like you Xx,” the Tony Award-winner commented.
For each Grande and Erivo, bringing “Depraved” to the large display screen is a dream come true. Consequently, they’re working collectively, together with director Jon M. Chu, to make the film as finest because it presumably might be. In a February interview with E! Information, Erivo opened up about how she and Grande are forming a sisterhood to allow them to absolutely convey Glenda and Elphaba’s friendship to life.
“Ariana and I’ve been assembly and chatting and speaking and constructing our personal relationship as a result of we all know that it is a sisterhood and we need to be prepared and ready to be there for each other,” she informed the outlet. “So it is that, and [director] Jon [M. Chu] is superb so we’re simply kind of ready to start out. We’re able to rehearse and get into it.”
It seems that rehearsals are actually underway — or at the very least near beginning — and Erivo and Grande’s sisterhood is already going robust.
