John Cusack and Rob Corddry will star in the MGM comedy Hot Tub Time Machine, while Craig Robinson and Clark Duke are in negotiations to also star in the film, being directed by Steve Pink.
The script, by Josh Heald, follows a group of guys who have grown frustrated with their adult lives. They return to the ski lodge where they partied as teens to find answers and are transported to 1987 via their hot tub, a bubbly time machine.
Cusack, Corddry and Robinson are the three best friends, while Duke is Cusack’s younger brother.
Cusack is producing with partner Grace Loh via their New Crime. Matt Moore also is producing. An April 20 start date in Vancouver is being eyed.
