The film plays on the a situation we’ve all been in before – being stuck at the ragtag “leftovers” table of single people at a wedding. Kendrick will play Eloise, who ends up at said table after being removed from her maid-of-honor position following her break-up with the wedding’s best man. If they join the film, Carrell and Fey would play a bickering and dysfunctional couple. I think I speak for most of the world when I say I’m a big fan of these three and can’t wait to see the film come together. Mark and Jay Duplass wrote the script and were originally on board to helm as well before Jeffrey Blitz took over directing duties.
Shawn Levy and Tom McNulty will produce.
Kendrick has recently starred in “End of Watch”, “Pitch Perfect” and “Drinking Buddies” and will next appear in “The Last Five Years” and “Get a Job.”
“Office” alum Carell was most recently in “The Way, Way Back” and lent his voice to “Despicable Me 2.” He can next be seen in “Foxcatcher” and in the comedy sequel “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.”
With “SNL” and “30 Rock” behind her, Fey last appeared in “Admission” and can next be seen in “Muppets Most Wanted” and “This is Where I Leave You.”
