The original story continues below.
Slowly but surely, we're learning more and more about Lala Kent's fiancé, Randall Emmett. Aside from his decision to appear on Vanderpump Rules, the Hollywood producer is about to experience another huge change in his life — and it involves a new career move and a very familiar face.
According to Deadline, Randall has produced over 110 movies (including The Irishman) with his partner, George Furla, and is "now set to make his directorial debut." That's right, Randall is making the jump from producer to director for the first time ever!
"Directing has been something that I've always known I would do having grown up in the theater and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in film," Randall explained in an interview with Deadline. He added, "With the support of George and the company, I am very excited for this challenge."
The soon-to-be director will be working on a film called Midnight in the Switchgrass, a thriller with a budget of $15 million. If that doesn't sound enticing enough, it was announced that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's Emile Hirsch will star in Randall's directorial debut. The actor and producer actually go way back.
"Having an actor that I have a decade-long relationship with will make me feel right at home as I embark on this journey," Randall said in the same interview. The film will begin production on March 9, 2020 in Puerto Rico.
Cheers to Randall for taking this leap and trying something new!
