Focus Features has announced that Sam Mendes' upcoming contemporary comedy will be called Away We Go.

The film follows the journey of an expectant couple as they travel the US in search of a place to put down roots and raise a family.

John Krasinski from TV's The Office and Saturday Night Live cast regular Maya Rudolph star as the parents-to-be.

Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida wrote the original screenplay. Focus has not scheduled the release date, expected to be some time in 2009.
