Another FREAKY FRIDAY-esque film is on the way, but this time with the boys. Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds, Leslie Mann, Olivia Wilde and Alan Arkin will star in the upcoming comedy THE CHANGE-UP. The story is simple, a married guy switches bodies with his best friend in order to woo his co-worker. It’ll be interesting to see how this “switch” happens. Could it be as simple as a wish or something more extreme like a lightning strike? THE CHANGE-UP will be directed by David Dobkin from a script written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. It opens in theaters on August 5, 2011.
I actually really like the original Disney film FREAKY FRIDAY, it was such a fun concept. I didn’t even mind the remake they did several years back with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis. Give me the same plot but with Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds as the leads and I am so there.
