Actor Billy Porter will direct a film called “Camp” by Warner Bros. and is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max, adapted from the novel of the same name by Lev Rosen.
“Camp” is a teen comedy about love life, musical theater and summer camp. This film focuses on the life of a 16 year old teenager named Randy Kapplehoff who spends a summer at Camp Outland. There he met his best friends and fell in love with Hudson Aaronson-Lim.
Dan Jinks, who is best known for producing “American Beauty” (1999), was appointed to produce this project. While the screenplay is being rewritten by Robert O’Hara–the previous draft was by Kit Williamson. Apart from directing, Porter will also play the role of Mark, who leads a theater camp.
“Billy Porter, whom I’ve been fortunate to have known for over 20 years, is the perfect director for this story, which is both hilarious and moving. I wish films like this existed when I was growing up. I’m glad we can do it now,” said Dan Jinks, quoted from Deadline on Wednesday.
The film “Camp” marks Porter’s third foray into directing after recently signing an untitled project for Amazon Studios. Porter made his directorial debut with the romantic comedy “What If?” for Orion Pictures.
In acting, Porter received three consecutive Emmy nominations for his role in the FX series “Pose” and won the lead actor category in a drama series in 2019.
For a career on stage, she played Lola in the 2013 Broadway musical “Kinky Boots” which won her a Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle award, as well as a Grammy for Best Musical Theatrical Album.
Most recently Porter starred in the musical “Cinderella” which aired on Amazon and appeared in the “Gossip Girl” series on HBO Max.

Brendan Fraser Called to Be a Villain in Batgirl Film
Actor Brendan Fraser is said to be joining the Batgirl film project being worked on by Warner Bros. and DC. Although not yet fully confirmed, sources say the actor will play the villain Firefly.
If Fraser agrees to join, he will meet with Jacob Scipio who recently agreed to join, then Leslie Grace who plays Batgirl, and the directors of Bad Boys for Life, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
Deadline on Monday (25/10) US time stated that the film will be on HBO Max and as one of the first major DC projects to debut exclusively on the streaming service.
Batgirl will tell the story of Commissioner Gordon’s daughter, Barbara Gordon, who will become the character Batgirl. This character was first introduced in 1961 as Betty Kane.
But in 1967 the character of Betty Kane in the TV Series ‘Batman’ was changed to Barbara Gordon because she wanted to attract a female audience. But this impression faltered in the third season.
He brings a character named Richard O’Connell, who is a former soldier who later helps Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) on an expedition to find the mummy’s grave.
Not only in the first film, Fraser also appeared in two other films, namely The Mummy Returns (2001) and Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008). After starring in Line of Descent in 2019, Fraser briefly disappeared from Hollywood.
He only appeared again in 2021 through the film No Sudden Move, and a number of other projects that are scheduled to be released some time in the future. One such project is the film The Whale, directed by Darren Aronofsky.
Not only that, Fraser will also play a role in the film Killers of the Flower Moon, directed by Martin Scorsese. The film also stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
Batgirl is expected to be released on HBO Max sometime in 2022.
