An early 2013 UK release date has been set for the London-filmed I Give It a Year, starring Rose Byrne, Anna Faris and Stephen Merchant, and written and directed by Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator Dan Mazer. It’s a comedy about “a young couple in their first year of marriage,” or as they say in England, “a young couple in their first year of marriage.”
In other Bridesmaids star news, Wendi McLendon-Covey will be starring in ABC’s Only Fools & Horses pilot (after Goldie Hawn left The Viagra Diaries and freed her from her role in that). Anyway, she and Steve Carell would definitely make this one a must-watch.
And in EVEN MORE Bridesmaids-related trade news (are you getting the theme for today’s trade roundup?), SCTV’s Andrea Martin has joined the Melissa McCarthy-produced CBS pilot about a guy moving in with his parents. Martin and Judd Hirsch will play Ben Falcone’s folks, and hopefully she’ll shine as beautifully as she did in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. “What do you mean he don’t eat no meat? …I make lamb.” Ah, 2002.
