From Friday Night Lights to Fargo, Jesse Plemons is a star that has been continuously rising. Now Plemons is in negotiations to join Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams in the comedy GAME NIGHT from New Line.
The film will be helmed by the Vacation directing duo, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. Bateman will produce the film alongside James Garavente for Aggregate Films and John Davis and John Fox will produce for Davis Entertainment.
In addition to directing, Goldstein and Daley also wrote the latest draft of the screenplay. Mark Perez wrote the original draft of the film.
Game Night will follow a group of several couples whose game night turns into a murder mystery after something goes terribly wrong.
Production on the film is expected to begin sometime in the first quarter.
Plemons can be seen alongside Jason Segel, Rooney Mara, and Robert Redford in the Sundance premiere of The Discovery this week.
Plemons is repped by TalentWorks.
