Jenny Slate and Charlie Day have been tapped to star in a new romantic comedy from Amazon Studios.
In the movie, titled I Want You Back, Slate and Day will play 30somethings, dumped by their respective partners and terrified that their shot at a fairytale life — complete with marriage, kids and houses in the suburbs — are over. With no prospects on the horizon and the thought of dying alone looming, they hatch a desperate plan to win back their exes, who are already in new relationships.
Along with Slate and Day, the ensemble cast includes “The Good Place” star Manny Jacinto, Gina Rodriguez and Scott Eastwood. Clark Backo, Jami Gertz, Jordan Carlos, Midori Francis, Mason Gooding, Isabel May and Luke David Blumm also appear in the film.
Jason Orley is directing the film. It was written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the co-showrunners of “This Is Us” who penned the script for the coming-of-age movie “Love, Simon.”
Production is slated to start early next month in Atlanta.
