Chevy Chase is joining the cast of United Artists’ time-travel comedy Hot Tub Time Machine, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Steve Pink-directed film, opening February 26, 2010, stars John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Lizzy Caplan, Crispin Glover, Sebastian Stan and Charlie McDermott.
“Hot Tub” follows a bunch of unsatisfied guys who get thrown back to their younger days in 1987 via their Jacuzzi.
Chase plays a mysterious repairman who dispenses pearls of wisdom and may or may not be behind the metaphysical road trip. The film is shooting in Vancouver.
The trade adds that Chase is also considering a new script for the Weinstein Co. that would see him reprise his investigative reporter Irwin “Fletch” Fletcher. The current screenplay has Fletch passing the baton to his journalist nephew as the semi-retired uncle advises him on his stories.
