Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau are swinging once again. The duo is teaming for Couples Retreat, a Universal comedy written by Favreau and directed by Peter Billingsley. Jason Bateman and Faizon Love are set to star with Vaughn and Favreau.
The story follows four couples who go to a tropical island resort. One couple is there to work on their marriage while the others are there to play–but they soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional, Variety reports.
Vaughn will produce with Scott Stuber in a co-production between his Wild West Picture Show Prods. and Stuber Prods.
Cast deals are being finalized with production eyeing a late October start in Bora Bora and LA.
As with 2006 comedy The Break-Up, Vaughn hatched the idea for Couples Retreat. Vaughn produced The Break-Up with Stuber and starred in it with Favreau. Billingsley, who also had a small role, was involved in producing and second unit direction on that pic as well as Vaughn’s Four Christmases and Favreau’s Iron Man, Variety notes.
