Does Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. have to work on a film together every year? According to THR, the Academy Award winning actor has just signed on to co-star in the comedy Due Date alongside Downey and Zach Galifianakis. The last casting announcement made for this film featured another actor from Downey’s past, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’s Michelle Monaghan.
Due Date is a road trip movie that centers on a father (Downey) to be as he anxiously tries to venture cross country to make it in time for his child’s birth. Unfortunately, he has to hitch a ride with an annoying slacker (Galifianakis) in order to make that happen. Monaghan will star as the pregnant wife, and Foxx will star as Downey’s best friend who used to date the wife and still secretly keeps in touch with her.
Due Date will be directed by Todd Phillips and is scheduled to start production in Atlanta, New Mexico and Los Angeles this fall. At this point my excitement for this film has gone through the roof. Everyone in this movie has experience doing comedy, and know how to pull it off. I can’t wait until some promo shots are released from the film, and we get to see everyone in character.
