One of our most celebrated directors returns to the screwball comedy genre as Peter Bogdanovich (Paper Moon, What’s Up, Doc?) brings us She’s Funny That Way, with Yahoo! giving us our first look at the trailer. Check it out below!
A star-studded farce, She’s Funny That Way revolves around married Broadway director Arnold (Owen Wilson) who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress named Izzy (Imogen Poots) and tries to help advance her career. Along for the ride is Jennifer Aniston as Izzy’s therapist Jane, Will Forte as Jane’s husband and Kathryn Hahn as Arnold’s wife.
Also in the cast are Lucy Punch, Debi Mazar, Rhys Ifans, Quentin Tarantino (as himself), and former Bogdanovich collaborators Cybill Shepherd, Colleen Camp and Tatum O’Neal. Keep your eyes peeled in the trailer for an uncredited cameo from actor Michael Shannon!
She’s Funny That Way opens in the U.S. on May 1.
