    We're The Millers

    I remember Will Arnett was attached to this at one point.

    From Deadline:

    Jennifer Aniston is circling "We’re The Millers", the New Line comedy about a pot dealer who pulls together a fake wife and two kids to pose as an RV road-tripping family so that he can smuggle 1000 pounds of pot across the country. Dodgeball‘s Rawson Thurber is directing. Aniston is in talks to play the fake wife, who’s actually a hooker. Her "Horrible Bosses" costar Jason Sudeikis is eyeing the role of the family patriarch (he’s the pot smuggler). The kids are juvenile delinquents. The raunchy comedy, described as a “warped National Lampoon's Vacation,” has a script by "Wedding Crashers" scribes Bob Fisher & Steve Faber, and the film’s produced by David Heyman, Happy Walters, Vince Newman and Tucker Tooley, with Benderspink executive producing. Aniston is coming off "Wanderlust", and she’s repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

    Nothing. This script has just been around for a long time, that's all. I remember some post I wrote several years ago with a bunch of movie scripts that Arnett was attached to, post-Arrested Development, and this was one of them.

    This sounds like exactly the kind of Jennifer Aniston comedy that America loves to ignore. Throw money at it!

    Principal photography is underway on New Line Cinema’s action comedy “We’re The Millers,” starring Jennifer Aniston (“Horrible Bosses”) and Jason Sudeikis (“The Campaign”). The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (“Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story”).

    David Burke (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).

    In order to wipe the slate clean—and maintain a clean bill of health—David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the “Millers” are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.

    Thurber directs “We’re The Millers” from a screenplay by Steve Faber & Bob Fisher (“Wedding Crashers”) and Sean Anders & John Morris (“Hot Tub Time Machine”). The film also stars Emma Roberts (“The Art of Getting By”), Nick Offerman (“21 Jump Street”), Kathryn Hahn (“The Dictator”), Will Poulter (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”)* and Ed Helms (the “Hangover” films).

    Vincent Newman, Tucker Tooley, Happy Walters and Chris Bender are the producers, with David Heyman, J.C. Spink and Marcus Viscidi serving as executive producers.

    Thurber’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Barry Peterson (“21 Jump Street”); production designer Clayton Hartley (“The Other Guys”); editor Mike Sale (“The Hangover Part II”); and costume designer Shay Cunliffe (“The Bourne Legacy”).

    Shot on location in North Carolina and New Mexico, New Line Cinema’s “We’re The Millers” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.


    * I don't know if anyone here's familiar with Will Poulter, but he was on the British kids' sketch show "School of Comedy".
    I think he's pretty funny. He has a talent for comedy for sure:



    It is kind of nice to see Rawson Marshall Thurber finally directing another comedy, "Dodgeball" was a pretty good debut film for a director.

    Hmm, I wonder if Nick Offerman will play a cop/border patrol officer...

    Will Poulter was in Son of Rambow wasn't he? As the troubled one? If so, his is the only casting that remotely makes sense, unless that's the whole point. It kind of seems like it is.

    Kind of weird there aren't any black people in this cast, not even Chris Williams*. Is that racist of me to think that?

    *multiracial.

    Red-band trailer:



    This looks pretty good, I wonder if it does well enough whether Jason will decide not to return to SNL next season.

    Wonder no more! I have the scoop from a reputable source:

    Jason: "The success of We're the Millers will absolutely be the thing that determines my status at SNL."

    Re: We're The Millers

    I thought this was funny and refreshingly R-rated, in a way not seen much in recent years. Kind of like a modern-day "National Lampoon's Vacation" updated for the 21st century. Sudeikis's character is not exactly likeable at first, but gets more sympathetic as the movie goes on. Offerman and Hahn are of course very good in their supporting parts, and Poulter is a particular highlight with his physical comedy (good American accent too). Overall I think it has the potential to be a late summer hit for Jason.

    I thought this was a pretty darn solid comedy. I thought "Horrible Bosses" was a pile of shit, so I wasn't looking forward to this, but hey, lots of giggles. And I really wanted them to stay as a family. Sudekis is so goddamn charming.

    Loved it. The song in the bloopers was priceless.
