Sigourney Weaver joins Ed Helms and John C. Reilly in Cedar Rapids

Sigourney Weaver has joined the cast of the upcoming comedy Cedar Rapids.

Starring Ed Helms and John C. Reilly, the film follows a “wholesome and naive man” from Wisconsin (Helms) who is forced to represent his company at a regional conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he is shocked by the big-town experience.

Weaver will play Helms’s former seventh-grade teacher in the Miguel Arteta helmed project.
