Simon Pegg (Star Trek Into Darkness, The World’s End) should man up. Or at least Lake Bell (How to Make It in America, In a World…) will force him to.
Pegg will star alongside the multi-talented Bell in Man Up, a romantic comedy that centres on Bell who is mistaken for a stranger’s blind date en route to her parents’ anniversary, leading to her finally finding the perfect boyfriend (Pegg).
The script, written by Tess Morris, made the 2011 Brit List – the British version of the Black List. Nira Park, producer of Shaun of the Dead and Attack the Block is to produce with The Inbetweeners director Ben Palmer attached to helm.
