The duo is accompanied by Gina Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, Manny Jacinto and Clark Backo in the cast of the Amazon Studios film, which is being directed by Jason Orley.
The film follows Emma (Slate) and Peter (Day) who thought they were on the verge of life’s greatest moments until their respective partners dropped them.
Emma and Peter are in their thirties and appalled that they happily missed their shot. They are stunned to learn that their partners have already moved on. With no prospect of romance on the horizon and the risk of dying alone over their heads, the two have a desperate plan to win back their exes.
Jami Gertz, Jordan Carlos, Midori Francis, Mason Gooding, Isabel May and Luke David Blumm round out the cast on the film, which will begin production next month.
Orley will direct from a script by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger. Peter Safran and John Rickard are producing the project together with Aptaker and Berger.
The director said in a statement: “I fell in love with Isaac and Elizabeth’s fun, heartfelt script instantly and I am so honored that they, along with the great team at Amazon, allow me to bring their timeless love story to life and that I do it with such an incredible group of actors. “
Jennifer Salke, Director of Amazon Studios added, “It is a dream to bring Isaac and Elizabeth’s brilliantly authentic vision to the world!
“We couldn’t be more excited to see this amazing ensemble aboard this funny and hilarious story that audiences will fall in love with.”
