Damon Wayans Jr. will star alongside Tyler Labine and Lucy Punch in Someone Marry Barry, a comedy written and directed by Rob Pearlstein.
Barry follows three friends who plot to get rid of their socially inappropriate friend Barry by finding him a wife. But when Barry finally meets a woman, she turns out to be just like him, and now the guys have to deal with not one but two “Barrys.
Hayes MacArthur, Thomas Middleditch, Frankie Shaw and Amanda Lund co-star in supporting roles.
Principal photography on the project began yesterday, in Los Angeles.
Barry Josephson, as well as Marisa Polvino and Kate Cohen of Straight Up Films are producing.
“The funniest, most outrageous characters are often relegated to the role of sidekick. We’re bringing those characters front and center and giving them their own love story. But the movie is also a love story between the friends, and at its heart, it’s about how friendship endures against all odds,” said Pearlstein – a best live-action short film Oscar winner.
Damon Wayans Jr stays busy as one of the stars of ABC’s Happy Endings.
