Tessa Thompson is set to star in a new film from Little Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.
The comedy film, titled The Invite, will star Thompson, Amy Adams, and Paul Rudd.
The film is based on Cesc Gay’s 2020 Spanish comedy ‘Sentimental.’
According to Deadline, “Pic tells the story of Joe (Rudd) and Angela (Adams), who after 15 years of marriage, find that their relationship is in a rut. Desperate to have a conversation that isn’t focused on their marital woes, Angela invites their boisterous neighbors, Kayla (Thompson) and Shane, over for cocktails. Joe, irritated at having to engage with this disruptive couple, plans to use the occasion to confront them; however, both he and Angela get far more than they bargained for as sparks fly and they discover Shane and Kayla are hosting weekly orgies and have an invite of their own to offer.”
'The Invite' script is written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormick.
The film is produced by Academy Award nominee David Permut (Hacksaw Ridge) for Permut Presentations and FilmNation Entertainment.
