Lake Bell Needs to 'Man Up' for Simon Pegg in Comedy's UK Trailer
Even though Simon Pegg will return to the final frontier for Star Trek 3 next year, for which he's also co-writing the script, this year he's heading back to romantic comedy territory. Man Up is a new romantic comedy slated to hit the United Kingdom this summer which sees Pegg starring opposite Lake Bell (In a World) in the story of two people who mistakenly come together on a blind date that never should have been. It looks like standard romantic comedy fare, but the presence of Bell and Pegg certainly elevates it a bit, and it might be a good one to see. At the very least, it's fun to see Pegg outside of sci-fi and fantasy fare.
Here's the first UK trailer for Ben Palmer's Man Up, originally from Yahoo UK:
Man Up is directed by Ben Palmer (The Inbetweeners Movie) and written by Tess Morris (the script made the 2011 Brit List). Nancy (Lake Bell), is done with dating, exhausted by the circus. So when Jack (Simon Pegg) blindly mistakes her for his date, no one is more surprised than her when she just goes with it. It’s going to take a night of pretending to be someone else for Nancy to be her painfully honest, awesomely unconventional self but will Jack be able to get over her duplicity? Olivia Williams, Ophelia Lovibond, Rory Kinnear and others star in the film hitting the UK on May 29th. But here's no US release date set yet.
