Universal just debuted some individual photos as a 2011 preview (via RopeofSilicon) and one of them that I thought was worth sharing is for the summer comedy called The Change-Up that stars Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman. The supporting cast also includes the illustrious Olivia Wilde as well as Leslie Mann and Alan Arkin. Change-Up is another classic body switch story where a responsible family man (Bateman) trades bodies with his lazy, man-child of a best friend. The just looks fun because I'm guessing this is after the switch and Ryan looks like he's freakin' out. But if I had to choose, I'd see Green Lantern this summer.
A comedy in which a married guy switches bodies with his lazy best friend in order to woo his co-worker.
The Change-Up is directed by veteran comedy filmmaker David Dobkin, of Clay Pigeons, Shanghai Knights, Wedding Crashers and Fred Claus previously. The screenplay was co-written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, of Rebound, Full of It, Four Christmases, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, The Hangover and Flypaper. The film was produced by Spyglass Entertainment and Universal Pictures will be bringing The Change-Up to theaters on August 5th later this summer. We'll let you know when a trailer hits. Anyone interested in this at all?
