12th Annual Oscar Wilde Awards
Alice Eve, Emile Hirsch, and Vanessa Hudgens join The Pre-Nup
It was announced today that Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness, Men in Black 3, Sex and the City 2), Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild, Speed Racer), Vanessa Hudgens (Sucker Punch, Spring Breakers), David Koechner (Anchorman 1& 2) and rising comedy star Sebastian Maniscalco will star in the romantic comedy The Pre-Nup from writer/director Jonathan Lynn (My Cousin Vinny, The Whole Nine Yards).
Eve, Emile, Vanessa, David and Sebastian join Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Notting Hill) in the Jeanna Polley (The Politician’s Wife, Laws of Attraction) produced film, which is expected to start shooting in June in the UK.
In the film, Zac (Hirsch) is a well-to-do American investment banker, who couldn’t be more thrilled when he gets engaged to Alice (Eve), a British ex-pat and aspiring novelist. But as soon as the happy news trickles down to his friends and family, trouble flares up. Zac’s father is a former rock star and notorious womanizer who pays more alimony than most lawyers in Beverly Hills put together. With this in mind, he insists that Zac have Alice sign a pre-nup, or he’ll cut Zac off from his multi-million dollar trust fund. Zac struggles with his decision, but ultimately bends to his father’s wishes and asks Alice to sign it. Alice is offended, believing that a pre-nup insults the very sanctity of their marriage, and her magistrate father (Bonneville) couldn’t agree more. But Alice proves that she’s no pushover by coming at Zac with demands of her own. And so the games begin… because if Zac is going to make Alice sign a pre-nup, she’s going to negotiate every detail of their life together!
