Queer Eye‘s 2018 reboot was obviously a huge success for the new Fab Five, and there’s no exemption for Antoni Porowski. Ever since the premiere of the first series, he’s boasted of three more, got some time to publish a cookbook, and even channeled American Psycho in a Netflix thriller.
Now, Porowski’s like is going to be the focus of a future Netflix film, Girls & Boys. The rom-com will be revolving around on Porowski’s dating experiences, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Queer Eye’s very own chef has developed the story himself with Kenya Barris alongside Pen15’s Andrew Rhymer and Jeff Chan to write the screenplay.
A huge part of the film will be focusing on how fluid Porowski’s sexuality is. In an interview with GQ in 2019, he said:
“I don’t really know and I kind of like not knowing.”
“I feel like if I do refer to myself as gay, which would make it easier for people to understand sometimes, I feel like it dishonours women that I’ve been in love with.”
Either way, Queer Eye has opened doors for Porowski and very deservingly so. Here’s a synopsis for the series if you haven’t seen it yet!
“More than a decade after the original series went off the air, Netflix reboots the “Queer Eye” franchise with a new Fab Five and a new setting, trading in the concrete jungle of New York City for communities in and around Atlanta. The style experts forge relationships with men and women who often have different beliefs from them, leading to moments of social commentary interspersed with style advice. Advising people in need of lifestyle makeovers are food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France and culture expert Karamo Brown, who reality TV fans may recognize as one of the housemates on “The Real World (1992): Philadelphia.” David Collins, who created the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (2003) show, is on board as an executive producer.”
