“Community” star Alison Brie continues to make her mark in feature film with a new gig. According to Variety, the actress is joining the cast of the upcoming Nicholas Stoller comedy Five Year Engagement. She’ll star alongside Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, who previously worked together on Gulliver’s Travels.
The title of the film is a dead give away of the premise but if you need further explanation here it is. Five Year Engagement centers on the ups and downs of a couple who’ve been together for a very long time. Segel and Blunt will play the couple, while Brie will star as Blunt’s younger sister. In an interesting twist, the film will mark the first time that Brie will do a British accent on screen.
The actress said, “I’ve worked on accents when I was studying at Cal Arts and in Scotland and enjoy that kind of transformation.” Production is slated to start around April. The screenplay was co-written by Segel and Stoller, who previously penned The Muppets together.
