Over the past two years Rose Byrne has really transitioned from the wide eyed ingenue we first met in Two Hands. She has cemented her reputation as a talented comic actress through strong performances in Bridesmaids and Get Him to the Greek, and today is was confirmed that she’ll re-engage her funny once more for a new romantic comedy, I Give It a Year.
Byrne will star with confirmed cast members Anna Faris, fellow Australian Simon Baker and English actor Rafe Spall (Anne Hathaway’s awkward pasty boyfriend in One Day) in the story of a mismatched newlywed couple (Byrne and Spall) struggling through the first year of marriage. The project is being helmed by writer-director Dan Mazer, whose past work includes Da Ali G Show, Borat and Bruno.
Looking forward to a “super tight” performance from Rose Byrne.
