Long Shot red band trailer: Unlikely but not impossible
He’s a hard-hitting political writer with a talent for trouble. She’s the country’s top diplomat with a talent for…well, everything. When Fred Flarsky reunites with his first crush who also happens to be the current US Secretary of State, Charlotte Field, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a surprise run for the Oval Office, Charlotte hires Fred to punch up her campaign speeches and their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world affair. But Fred’s carefree indiscretions, past and present, could bring down her campaign before it even begins. The film redefines “international relations” with a profane, funny and unexpected love.
A Point Grey, Denver & Delilah and Good Universe production, Flarsky will be produced by A.J. Dix, Evan Goldberg, Beth Kono, and James Weaver alongside Rogen and Theron.
Jonathan Levine, who previously worked with Rogen on 50/50 and The Night Before, directs from a script by Dan Sterling (The Interview).
The Long Shot will hit theaters on May 3.
