Lake Bell has directed another film following her 2013 directorial debut In a World… that just got a premiere date. Titled I Do…Until I Don’t, the film stars Bell, Ed Helms, Paul Reiser, Wyatt Cenac, Mary Steenburgen, Amber Heard, and Dolly Wells. Here’s the logline from Deadline’s report:
Pic tells the story of three couples in Vero Beach, Florida at various points in their relationships. They become subjects of a documentarian’s film about how marriage is an antiquated idea that needs a reboot: Why not turn marriage into a seven-year deal with an option to renew? For Alice and Noah (Bell, Helms), more than a hint of boredom is setting in as they approach their first decade together and the prospect of parenthood. Meanwhile, Alice’s funky sister Fanny (Heard) is sure her “open marriage” to Zander (Cenac) is the key to their free-spirited happiness. And then there’s Cybil and Harvey (Steenburgen, Reiser), a pair of empty-nesters wondering what the next stage will be. As the manipulative filmmaker (Wells) attempts to show how marriage is outmoded, the couples she interviews discover the “do’s” and “don’t’s” in their own relationships.
The film is slated to hit theaters on Friday, September 1st.
