The Hangover and The Change Up writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore will direct from their own screenplay. Mandeville Films is producing in association with Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced and Relativity will handle worldwide distribution.
The 29-day shoot is scheduled to take place in Seattle, Washington, and the young cast features Miles Teller from the upcoming Footloose remake, Justin Chon from The Twilight Saga, Skylar Astin and Sarah Wright.
Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, whose credits include the Oscar nominated The Fighter and this winter’s The Muppets, are producing.
The story follows two childhood friends who coerce their studious friend to accompany them on a riotous night out before his medical school interview. François Chau, Jonathan Keltz, Daniel Booko and Dustin Ybarra round out the cast.
“Scott and I couldn’t be more excited about directing our first movie, and are grateful to Relativity for giving us this amazing opportunity,” Lucas said on behalf of both directors. “If the movie isn’t awesome, it’s Scott’s fault.”
