The Valet is a remake of the 2006 French film of the same name. It is directed by Richard Wong from a screenplay written by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher. The film stars Eugenio Derbez, Samara Weaving, Max Greenfield, and Betsy Brandt.

“In the film, world famous movie star, Olivia faces a PR disaster when a paparazzi snaps a photo of her with her married lover, Vincent,” reads the synopsis. “The hard-working valet Antonio accidentally appears in the same photo and is enlisted to pose as Olivia’s new boyfriend as a cover up. This ruse with Olivia thrusts Antonio into the spotlight and unexpected chaos. In this fish out of water romantic comedy, two worlds and cultures collide as both Olivia and Antonio start to see themselves more clearly than ever before.”
