Todd Strauss-Schulson, who directed New Line’s 2011 movie ‘A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,’ is helming the rom-com.
Adam Devine and Liam Hemsworth will star opposite Rebel Wilson in Isn’t It Romantic, a New Line romantic comedy that Todd Strauss-Schulson is directing.
The story tells of a cynical woman (Wilson) who discovers that her life has become a romantic comedy, and she goes from sidekick to center stage.
The two actors are two points in a love triangle with Wilson, with Devine playing a character who is stuck in the friend zone and Hemsworth the hunky object of Wilson’s affections.
Erin Cardillo wrote the initial script; Dana Fox, Katie Silberman and Paula Pell worked on it as well, with the most recent revisions by Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly.
Todd Garner, Grant Scharbo, Gina Matthews and Jeremy Stein are producing the comedy, which is targeting a June start date.
For Devine, Isn’t It Romantic reteams him with Wilson; the two co-starred in the hit Pitch Perfect movies. The actor also starred in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and is coming off hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards. He is currently shooting Game Over, Man, a comedy for Netflix with his Mail Order Comedy partners Anders Holm and Blake Anderson. Devine is repped by WME, Avalon and lawyer Jeff Endlich.
Hemsworth, who starred in the Hunger Games movies with Jennifer Lawrence, last appeared in Independence Day: Resurgence and will next be seen in The Duel, a Western with Woody Harrelson. He is repped by WME, ROAR Management and Morris Yorn.
