The plot of “Eternity” remains under wraps, but it is described as a romantic comedy in which characters must decide who they want to spend eternity with. Patrick Cunnane, who wrote the screenplay and appeared on the 2022 Black List, is best known for penning the TV thriller “Designated Survivor,” starring Kiefer Sutherland.

A24 is financing the film and partnering with Oscar-nominated producers Trevor White and Tim White (“King Richard”) under their production company Star Thrower Entertainment. Olsen and Teller will also serve as executive producers. “Eternity” is set to begin production this summer.

Randolph gained widespread attention with her breakout role on Broadway as psychic Oda Mae Brown in 2012’s “Ghost: The Musical,” earning a Tony Award nomination. The role led to memorable film performances, including “Dolemite Is My Name” with Eddie Murphy and “The Lost City” alongside Sandra Bullock. The Philadelphia-born actress captured hearts and critical acclaim with her role as a grieving cafeteria manager in Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers,” earning over 70 critics’ prizes and winning the best supporting actress Oscar. She appeared on the cover of Variety’s post-Oscars issue.

The star will also be in the running for her first Emmy nod in the guest comedy actress category for her role as Detective Donna Williams on the third season of Hulu’s mystery comedy “Only Murders in the Building.”

Randolph’s next role is in Lionsgate’s “Shadow Force,” directed by Joe Carnahan and starring Kerry Washington.

Randolph is represented by CAA and Fox Rothschild.
