Seth Rogen returns to the big screen this year following his performance opposite Michelle Williams in the acclaimed Take This Waltz, and this time he’ll be starring alongside a bit of an interesting co-lead in the form of Barbara Streisand.
The first image has now made its way online, giving us a look at the leading duo, with Rogen looking his usual awesome self.
“Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen) is an inventor who lives in Los Angeles. He’s come up with an amazing organic cleaner but can’t get anyone interested in manufacturing it.
Andy plans a business trip to promote the product and decides to take his recently-widowed mother (Barbra Streisand) along for the ride. She’s been despondent since his father died, so he comes up with a great idea—during the trip he’ll surprise her with a stop in San Francisco, where one of her ex-flames lives.”
Starring alongside Rogen and Streisand will be a pretty great supporting cast, headed up by Adam Scott, Colin Hanks, Yvonne Strahovski, and Brett Cullen.
Anne Fletcher (Step Up) is behind the camera for what is promising to be an excellent comedy, with a script from Dan Fogelman, who penned Crazy, Stupid, Love., by far one of the best drama-comedies in recent years.
The Guilt Trip will be released in the US on Christmas Day, and should be a perfect choice for a comedy gem this holiday season. Here in the UK, we’ll have to wait until 22nd February for its release, but we all know that Seth Rogen is always worth the wait. For now, enjoy this first look image, and as usual, you can click to enlarge.
