It’s been announced that principal photography has begun on Someone Marry Barry, a raucous comedy written and directed by Academy Award-nominee Rob Pearlstein. Tyler Labine, Damon Wayans Jr., Lucy Punch, Hayes MacArthur, Thomas Middleditch, Frankie Shaw and Amanda Lund are all set to star.
Someone Marry 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’. Through their tribulations with this uncensored duo, the guys learn some truths about the nature of friendship and love.
“The funniest, most outrageous characters are often relegated to the role of sidekick,” says Pearlstein. “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.”
