Can you believe it has been around 25 years since Silverstone became famous for her character in Clueless, a high school movie. Alicia is all set to come back to the same genre that made her famous with Senior Year, a Netflix movie. She has joined the cast which already has Rebel Wilson, Mary Holland, Sam Richardson, Chris Parnell, and Justin Hartley with others. This movie will release next year.
The director of Senior Year will be Alex Hardcastle. He is known for directing shows such as Parks and Recreation and Grace and Frankie. This movie is based on a script written by Brandon Jones. The story follows a cheerleader who wakes up from a coma after 20 years and tries to become the prom queen after she could not achieve that in her old school. The old student scenario is expected in the film. This will probably not be a brilliant piece of art or anything out of the ordinary, but with Alicia Silverstone in the cast, it is expected to be entertaining.
