Karen is getting her own movie. A trailer dropped over the weekend for the upcoming horror film, “Karen,” starring Taryn Manning, 42. Manning, known for her breakout role in “Orange Is the New Black,” will be playing the titular role in the BET film production. Cory Hardrict (“American Sniper”) and Jasmine Burke (“Saints & Sinners”) will star alongside Manning, with Coke Daniels (“His, Hers & the Truth”) directing.
Does someone have the number for the manager of Hollywood? Because I'd like to report an issue. There is going to be a movie called Karen, and the trailer for it is so heavy-handed and offensively bad that I'm unsure if it's supposed to be an actual film or a satire so entrenched in irony that it's unrecognizable as actual satire.
A trailer for the new film Karen prompted widespread derision after viewers branded it a rip-off of Jordan Peele's Get Out. The film tells the story of a racist white woman who seeks to terrorize her black neighbors. Many people went straight to social media to take aim at what they said is a blatant attempt to imitate Peele's hit.

Actually, it's Taryn Manning as the much-hyped, titular "Karen" in the upcoming thriller from Coke Daniels ... a role meant to represent a blend of all the notorious "Karens" who've gone viral for the worst reasons over the past couple years. The "Orange is the New Black" star plays a...
Taryn Manning is a terrifyingly entitled woman in Karen, the upcoming thriller from Coke Daniels inspired by the real-life "Karens" of the world. Known for her breakout role on Orange Is the New Black, Manning will play a racist woman in the movie similar to some of those witnessed in viral videos calling the police on neighbors for insignificant reasons. The first trailer has just recently been released, and you can take a look at it below.
Coming soon from director Coke Daniels, Taryn Manning stars in the horror movie Karen, and Deadline reports today that 13 Films has boarded sales ahead of the Cannes market. The film centers on “Karen Drexler (Manning), a racist white woman who makes it her personal mission to displace the new Black family that has just moved in next door to her. Community activist Malik (Cory Hardrict) and his wife Imani (Jasmine Burke) are the couple who have just moved to the Atlanta suburb, but they won’t be backing down without a fight.”
After what feels like a fortnight (that’s actually been close to a year) since we first reported news of a movie being made about the Karen complex -- “a white woman who uses her privilege to demand her own way at the expense of others”, as Urban Dictionary puts it -- Hollywood has managed to churn out its trailer. Racists work quick, but the relentless scythe of the content machine works even quicker, it seems.
