As of right now Ben Palmer‘s Man Up, a new rom-com starring Lake Bell and Simon Pegg, is without a release date or even a distributor here in the U.S., but it will be hitting theaters in the UK on May 29 and the first trailer has found its way online. Here’s the plot:
Nancy (Lake Bell), is done with dating. 10 times bitten, 100 times shy, she’s exhausted by the circus. So when Jack (Simon Pegg) blindly mistakes her for his date, no one is more surprised than her when she does the unthinkable and just — goes with it. It’s going to take a night of pretending to be someone else for Nancy to finally man up and be her painfully honest, awesomely unconventional self… but will jack also man up, and be able to get over her duplicity? best just to let the evening unfold, roll with the consequences, and see if one crazy, unpredictable, complicated night can bring these two messy souls together.
The pic co-stars Olivia Williams, Ophelia Lovibond and Rory Kinnear and seems likely to find its way to an On Demand release here in the States, but who knows, give the trailer a shot below and let me know what you think.
