Amy Poehler And Paul Rudd Star In New Romantic Comedy – A Romcom, If You Will

The new film, ‘They Came Together’, is set to premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in two weeks and will star Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd as the romantic leads. The spoof of the classic ‘RomCom’ formula will also star Michael Ian Black, Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Max Greenfield, Cobie Smulders, Ed Helms, Melanie Lynsky, Michael Shannon, Jason Mantzoukas and Michaela Watkins.

This excellent director’s statement is brought to you by director David Wain: “After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I teamed up with Michael Showalter to take on a topic that (to our knowledge) has yet been seen in the movies: ROMANCE — particularly heterosexual romance between two white people.

Our next idea was to mix this romance story with humor – so you could almost call this a Romantic-Comedy, so to speak.

We first worked with Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd on Wet Hot American Summer. They played summer camp counselors in that movie, so it was obviously hard for us to imagine them playing a shopkeeper and a corporate executive, respectively. But thanks to a team of acting coaches and an award™ winning VFX team, we pulled off the illusion.”
