This is my favorite news of the day so far! Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn are staring in a movie together again! Also included in the cast is Jason Bateman and Faizon Love.
The Movie is called 'Couples Retreat' and was written by Favreau. Directing the film is a guy by the name of Peter Billingsley you might know him as Ralphie from the classic film 'A Christmas Story'. Favreau and Vaughn are very good friends with Billingsley. He actually had a small role in Favreaus 'Iron Man' as the scientist that got chewed out by Obadiah Stane. Variety reports:
Story follows four couples who go to a tropical island resort. While one couple is there to work on their marriage, the others are there to play but soon discover that participation in the resort's couples therapy is not optional.
Vaughn will produce with Scott Stuber in a co-production between his Wild West Picture Show Prods. and Stuber Prods. Victoria Vaughn and Guy Riedel exec produce.
This film has a huge amount of talent behind it, and I know it is going to be a great little production. How awesome is it that Favreau is taking time out of his busy schedule to do a movie with a bunch of his friends.
Favreau and Vaughn started their careers together in the movie 'Rudy'. Then they went on to do the classic 'Swingers' together and a great little movie called 'Made'.
