‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ helmer Steve Pink is to take the director’s chair to direct Chris Pratt (‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’) and and wife Anna Faris (‘The House Bunny’) in the comedy ‘Vacation Friends,’ reports Deadline.
Penned by sibling scribes Tom and Tim Mullen, the script is described as being in the vein of 1991’s ‘What About Bob?’ and follows “a crazy wild couple that bonds with a straight laced couple on vacation in Mexico. They have a great time, and then want to rekindle the fun. Once the other couple gets back to their normal life, it’s not nearly the same kind of fun and their vacation friends won’t go away.”
Filming is expected to kick off this summer with Todd Garner of Broken Road Pictures producing.
Pratt and Faris previously starred together in ‘Take Me Home Tonight,’ ‘What’s Your Number’ and the comedy anthology flop ‘Movie 43.’
