“Childrens Hospital” star Lake Bell affects a British accent to pose as Simon Pegg’s blind date in the first trailer for “Man Up,” a romantic comedy that debuts at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 19 in advance of its UK premiere.
Ben Palmer (“The InBetweeners Movie”) directed from a Brit List script by Tess Morris.
Bell plays Nancy, a cynical single woman who has sworn off dating until she meets Jack (Simon Pegg), a charming romantic who mistakes her for his 24-year-old blind date. Will Nancy “man up” and come clean, and if she does, can Jack “man up” and get over her little white lie? All will be revealed following a wild night full of wacky misunderstandings.
“Man Up” doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet but it shouldn’t be long before some domestic distributor “mans up” and takes the plunge.
