Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler to Star in David Wain’s ‘They Came Together’
Paul Rudd recently made a guest appearance on Amy Poehler‘s NBC comedy ‘Parks and Recreation,’ and now the two will reunite on the big screen for David Wain‘s latest film, aptly titled ‘They Came Together.’
Variety reports that the pair are re-teaming with their ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ writer and director David Wain for ‘They Came Together,’ a romantic comedy satire for Lionsgate’s micro-budget division.
Wain co-wrote the film with longtime collaborator and fellow scribe Michael Showalter right after ‘Wet Hot American Summer,’ but the film finally has some traction with the help of Lionsgate and the casting of Rudd and Poehler.
Variety has the details on the plot:
When Joel (Rudd) and Molly (Poehler) meet, it’s hate at first sight; his big corporation is the one that threatens to shut down her quirky knick-knack store. Story, which follows their predictably on-again/off-again relationship, features rom-com staples such as the jealous ex-girlfriend, the office jerk, scary in-laws, a boring dentist, a wise dog and beautiful shots of New York City in autumn.
Rudd has the distinction of appearing in all of Wain’s films, including his most recent comedy, ‘Wanderlust,’ which co-starred Jennifer Aniston. This is Poehler’s first time acting for Wain since ‘Wet Hot American Summer.’ The two also participated in a table read of the script for ‘They Came Together’ at this year’s San Francisco Sketchfest.
