Bad Girl (2016) Screen Captures

Hello Samara fans! After years of searching, I’ve finally been able to get a hold of Samara’s Australian 2016 film Bad Girl. It was Samara’s first lead role in a film, and I really enjoyed her performance in this! If you haven’t seen it before, it’s currently available on YouTube – you can check it out here.

Our gallery has been updated with more than 2000 blu-ray screen captures of Samara as Chloe. Enjoy!

Amy Anderson, a rebellious foster daughter, rethinks her way of life after becoming friends with her new neighbour, Chloe. But her life turns upside-down when she discovers Chloe’s real identity.

We have a new layout + video and press archive

Hello Samara fans! As you might have spotted, Wonderful Weaving has a new layout today. I decided to go for something simpler this time, following our colorful previous theme, and I hope you’ll like it.

In addition to the new look, I’ve set up our new video archive and press archive! Our old ones were lost last year due to a corrupted backup, but I finally found the time to re-build them. The video archive is still missing most of the television series videos, but I’ll continue to work on this over the next days! It still has more than 100 videos of Samara, and is worth a browse if you want to check out her interviews, film projects, photoshoots and more. I will also start re-creating our filmography pages, which were lost during the crash as well.

Let me know if you come across any errors with the new theme or one of the new sections, and have fun browsing!

Netflix Orders Its First Pilot Ever – Comedy ‘Little Sky’ Starring Samara Weaving

Samara remains booked and busy! It’s been revealed that she has teamed up with Netflix for an exciting new project titled ‘Little Sky’, which she’ll both star in and produce. Read on for more details!

DEADLINE EXCLUSIVE: Netflix is dipping its toe into the pilot development model with Little Sky, a single-camera comedy starring and executive produced by Samara Weaving (Scream VI). The streamer has ordered a pilot for the project, from creator Rightor Doyle (Down Low) who is also set to direct.

Sources caution that this does not signal a permanent development shift. Little Sky is currently the only pilot planned at Netflix, which has been employing a straight-to-series model exclusively since venturing into original programming 12 years ago. I hear the decision was specific to Little Sky as executives were high on the concept but wanted to see a pilot to make sure the tone and the chemistry of the large ensemble were right, setting the project up for success.

RELATED: 2023 Netflix Pilot & Series Orders

Little Sky centers on Penelope Paul Porter (Weaving) who is determined to realize her lifelong dream of being a respected on-air news reporter (despite the fact she may be the worst reporter of all time). When she receives an anonymous tip that the Mayor of Little Sky is missing, she knows it’s her chance to finally prove herself. Arriving in the spooky, remote town of Little Sky, she senses she’s on to a big story – but little does she know she’s stumbled upon something much darker than she could have ever imagined.

Netflix’s willingness to try out the pilot model is significant. Pilots, a longtime staple of the network development model, are considered valuable proofs of concept, especially in comedy where cast chemistry, tone and comedic timing are key. A solid pilot increases a comedy’s chances for success as a series. For Netflix, first seasons serve as de facto pilots, so some of its half-hour series inevitably have not gone beyond that.

The comedy creative community had been hoping that Netflix would soften its longstanding no-pilots stance, first after Bela Bajaria, who comes from a broadcast background, was named head of Global TV in September 2020 and especially after she brought in network veteran Tracey Pakosta as Head of Comedy in November 2020 to work alongside another former broadcast comedy executive, VP Andy Weil.

There had been chatter over the past couple of months that Netflix might be open to comedy pilots. If the Little Sky experiment is successful, the streamer would presumably do more, adding another tool to its development toolbox which currently consists largely of script-to-series commitments and mini-rooms. But there are no plans for a pilot season with orders of multiple pilots that are weighed against each other, sources said.

Of the streamers, Netflix and Apple had stuck to straight-to-series orders only. HBO Max, Amazon (for both Prime Video and Freevee) and Peacock have all employed a dual model that involves both straight-to-series pickups and pilots, primarily in the comedy and YA drama space.

Netflix has been the beneficiary of the pilot model, picking up original series that had started as pilots elsewhere, including comedy Arrested Development and dramas Lucifer and Manifest. Additionally, a number of network series developed under that model are doing well on Netflix in a streaming window.

While recent Netflix comedy breakout, the multi-camera That ’90s Show, which has been renewed for a second season, did not do a pilot, its predecessor, That ’70s Show, whose continuing popularity played a major role in the sequel’s success, did at Fox two and a half decades ago.

Netflix’s current slate of hit comedy series include Cobra Kai and Never Have I Ever, which both are headed into their final seasons, The Upshaws and Emily in Paris. New comedy Unstable with Rob Lowe just debuted on the service. Coming up next are Survival of the Thickest (Michelle Buteau); The Vince Staples Show; an Untitled Kristen Bell Comedy; and an Untitled Mike Schur/Ted Danson comedy as well as Season 3 of Girls5eva, which is moving from Peacock.

The streamer also is home to praised comedies Mo, which will return for a second and final season, and I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson.

Creator-director Doyle executive produces Little Sky for King Lulu. His manager Dara Gordon is an executive producer for Anonymous Content. Weaving is also an executive producer.

This marks Weaving’s return to Netflix where she starred in the Ryan Murphy limited series Hollywood. She currently stars in the $142M-grossing Scream VI and can be seen in Searchlight’s upcoming Chevalier on April 21. Weaving also starred in Babylon, Snake Eyes and Bill & Ted Face the Music and broke out stateside in Searchlight’s horror hit Ready or Not. In TV, she also starred in the Hulu limited series Nine Perfect Strangers. Weaving, who recently signed on to star in the Larysa Kondracki-directed action thriller Bella in the works at Paramount Pictures, is repped by CAA, 111 Media and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole.

Doyle also is returning to Netflix. He previously created, directed and executive produced the streamer’s 2019 dark comedy series Bonding, which ran for two seasons. He made his feature directing debut with comedy Down Low, starring Lukas Gage and Zachary Quinto, which just premiered at SXSW. As an actor, Doyle recurs on HBO’s hit comedy Barry. He is repped by Anonymous Content and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.

Press tour for Chevalier has started!

Over the last three days, Samara’s glam squad (stylist, make-up artist and hair stylist) have shared photos of Samara on social media tagged with ‘Chevalier‘ press. No videos or interviews have surfaced online yet, but from experience this tends to take a while. However, I have began a new category in our gallery with her glam squad photos! This way we can stay updated on her press tour looks, while we patiently wait for videos/interviews/photoshoots/whatever is to come… These also have a major photoshoot-y vibe to them, so they’re well worth a look – enjoy!

(Note: I have also added all the pics I could find from Samara’s previous press tours, as well as her getting ready for various photoshoots and events. I’ll try to keep this category updated with any new SoMe pics her team uploads!)

Paramount Sets 1980s Action Thriller ‘Bella’ With Samara Weaving in the lead

Deadline just broke the news that Samara has been cast as the lead in an upcoming action thriller titled ‘Bella‘! Read on for more information on the film – congratulations Sam, we can’t wait to see this!

EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures is developing the action thriller Bella with Scream VI actress Samara Weaving set to star in the Larysa Kondracki-directed title.

Craig Flores is producing via Bread & Circuses Entertainment and Chad Stahleski is producing through his 87eleven Entertainment. Alex Young and Jason Spitz are executive producing via 87eleven.

Jason Markarian penned the most recent draft of the script, with Jesse Wigutow handling revisions.

Set against the backdrop of a crime wave that gripped New York City in the ’80s, Bella is a hyperstylized action thriller about a cop’s daughter who, as her father clings to life following an assassination attempt, goes on a rampage to unearth her father’s attacker and weed out deep-rooted corruption in the New York City Police Department.

Flores tells Deadline: “Bella cleverly reinvents the female-led action genre pairing a sexy and unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll edge with the gritty heightened realism of ’80s New York City. Collaborating with Chad Stahelski and 87Eleven, whose talent is singular in bringing unparalleled action films to worldwide audiences, is a dream for me, Larysa, and Samara.”

Flores’ credits include the profitable Paramount genre pic Crawl, which made $92M WW against a $14M budget. He was an EP on Warner Bros.’ near $800M-grossing 300 franchise as well as a co-EP on the near-$227M grossing Immortals.

87eleven had a record franchise-global opening hit in Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 4 this past weekend, which debuted to $137.5M. The movie made an estimated $5.7M on Monday in the U.S./Canada, raising its domestic running total to $79.5M. The John Wick franchise around the world counts over $732M currently through four movies.

Weaving currently stars in the $139M-grossing Scream VI and can be seen in Searchlight’s upcoming Chevalier on April 21. She also headlined Paramount’s Babylon, played Scarlett in Snake Eyes, starred in Bill & Ted Face the Music and broke out stateside in Searchlight’s pre-pandemic horror hit Ready or Not.

Kondracki has directed episodes on such notable TV series as Better Call Saul, The Americans, The Fix, Power and Power Book IV: Force. Her feature directorial debut was the Rachel Weisz crime drama The Whistleblower.

Weaving is repped by CAA, 111 Media and Johnson Shapiro Slewett. Wigutow is repped by Verve, Kaplan/Perrone, and Sloane Offer. Kondracki is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Lichter Grossman Nichols. Markarian is with WME, Heroes & Villains and Marks Law Group.
