Vince Vaughn and “Catastrophe” star Sharon Horgan are set to star in a romantic dramedy called “The Last Drop” from the producer of “Eighth Grade” and a director on the series “Ramy,” Christopher Storer. Endeavor Content will introduce the film to buyers at the American Film Market.
Storer will direct the film from a script by Brandon and Phillip Murphy and Elizabeth Chomko (“What They Had”).
“The Last Drop” is the story of a culinary show host named Clay Mason (Vaughn) who is the life of a never-ending party. Charming his way through endless meals and long nights of drinking has finally brought his career to the tipping point of ultimate success. But just as his debilitating lifestyle begins to unwind his career, he crosses paths with a spirited woman named Holly (Horgan) who specializes in reclaiming lost, undervalued items for her antique shop. As Holly peers past Clay’s bravado in a way no one else does, Clay begins to find the strength to pull out of his tailspin.
Shawn Levy, Dan Levine and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps are producing with Jen Dana of 3311, and 3311 will co-finance the project with Endeavor Content. Endeavor is representing worldwide sales and is introducing the film to buyers at AFM beginning next week.
“Clay requires a nuanced performance as he is both incredibly charming and seriously flawed and with Vince’s ability to be exceptionally funny while at the same time highly affecting, he is perfectly cast in the role. We are thrilled to be working with Vince again and can’t wait to see the chemistry he and Sharon will share on screen,” producers Levy, Levine and Cohen said in a statement. “Chris comes from a strong background of comedy and has really extended his range with Ramy, which is utterly compassionate while never missing a comedic beat and we are incredibly excited that he has come on board to direct.”
“‘The Last Drop’ is a beautifully written script that authentically depicts modern-day romance and Vince and Sharon are both highly accomplished performers who will strike the perfect balance between comedy and drama. We are also excited to be working with Christopher, who is poised to bring the humor and heart that will resonate with audiences worldwide,” Alex Walton, EVP of international sales at Endeavor Content, said in a statement.
Vaughn recently starred “Fighting With My Family” alongside Dwayne Johnson and will next be seen in “Seberg” with Kristen Stewart. He is currently shooting an untitled body swap thriller at Blumhouse. Vaughn is represented by WME and Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
