Dragalasul cuplu format din Dave Franco si Alison Brie a scris o comedie romantica – Somebody I Used To Know, pe care Franco o va regiza pentru Amazon Studios.

Filmul spune povestea lui Ally (Brie), o femeie obsedata de cariera care se intoarce pentru o scurta perioada in orasul natal. Acolo, ea se reintalneste cu fostul iubit (Jay Ellis) si, dupa o noapte de depanat amintiri, Ally incepe sa puna sub semnul intrebarii alegerile pe care le-a facut in viata. Lucrurile devin si mai confuze dupa ce o intalneste pe Cassidy (Kiersey Clemons), o tanara care ii aminteste de persoana care obisnuia sa fie.

Alison and I love romantic comedies and were inspired by the classics from the ’80s and ’90s. We couldn’t be more excited about working with Jay and Kiersey, who are both extremely natural performers, capable of bringing levity and drama in equal measure. And we’re so grateful to have partnered with Amazon Studios, who have been incredibly supportive in helping bring this project to life,” a declarat Franco. Acesta si-a facut debutul regizoral anul trecut, cu horror-ul The Rental, care a avut mare succes atat la box office, cat si la critici.

Audiences around the world are going to fall in love with Somebody I Used to Know just as much as we did. Dave and Alison have reimagined a beloved genre in a delightfully modern way. We could not be more thrilled to watch this incredible cast bring the film to life, shepherded by Dave’s vision, and to partner with Temple Hill and Black Bear to bring it to screen,” a adaugat Julie Rapaport de la Amazon Studios.
