The next film by the Duplass brothers adds to its cast list...

...giving this upcoming project perhaps their most star-studded lineup yet. Here's the story from Variety:

Judy Greer and Susan Sarandon are set to star opposite Jason Segel and Ed Helms in Mark and Paramount's comedy "Jeff Who Lives at Home," written and directed by the Duplass brothers.

Jason Reitman's Right of Way Films is producing along with John Malkovich's shingle Mr. Mudd.

Storyline revolves around two brothers, one of whom is going through a mid-life crisis and believes his wife (Greer) is having an affair. The other is a lovable loser who still lives with his mom (Sarandon). One day, the two brothers set out to spy on the wife, with all sorts of unintended consequences.

Greer is shooting Fox Searchlight's "The Descendants," the George Clooney topliner that Alexander Payne is helming in Hawaii. She's next in theaters on June 4 in 20th Century Fox's kid pic "Marmaduke." This fall, she'll be in theaters in Ed Zwick's "Love and Other Drugs."

Sarandon is next in theaters in Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," which makes its world premiere next month at the Cannes Film Festival.

-The early festival word on their upcoming film Cyrus is pretty good, so this movie is something to look out for...thoughts?

  1. The Duplass brothers seem to slowly be inching towards being more mainstream, and I don't necessarily think that it's a bad thing...
