Throwback to when I played the role of Joan of Arc in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. I ended up on the cutting room floor so you won't see my scene in the film, but it was all worth it for these blade hands and the chance to rewrite history as a Joan who jumps off the flaming pyre and guts a lot of men. I CANNOT WAIT for this rad movie ?
As you can see from the Instagram post above, Lena Dunham had a role in the movie that involved her playing Joan of Arc. However, the film would portray her as a version of Joan who rewrites history by jumping off of the burning stake and taking her sword to her male oppressors. We can’t see much because she’s mostly just surrounded by blue screens, but we can only imagine that it would have been awesome to see the Girls star in action.
Based upon that description of the scene, and considering the film’s underlying theme of female empowerment, it seems like the Joan of Arc sequence could be part of a montage describing powerful women throughout history. This would make sense, considering the original film utilized a similar sequence in which the Delta Psi brothers chronicle how their fraternity allegedly created all of the great party games – complete with numerous cameos from comedians such as The Lonely Island, the Workaholics crew, and New Girl's Jake Johnson.
That’s only a guess, but if the film does return to use that sort of montage, we could potentially expect to see other hilarious cameos in the film. I'm also a huge Lena Dunham fan, so you can fully expect me to wait and hope with my fingers crossed that her scene ends up as one of the Blu-ray special features.
We will bring you anything and everything related to the upcoming release of Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising as it becomes available to us. The film hits theaters on May 20.
