Rising stars Kristen Bell and Malin Akerman have
joined Sex and the City's Kristin Davis as the female leads in the romantic
comedy Couples Retreat. The script is from Jon Favreau, who somehow found the
time to pen a screenplay while working 20-hour days on the Iron Man set.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Couples Retreat's story revolves around
"four couples who go to a tropical island resort, with one couple working
on their marriage and the others sucked into the resort's couples
therapy." One can only hope that a series of grisly murders ensues. Now
that would be funny.
Playing the male leads in Couples Retreat will be
Favreau, Vince Vaughn (shocking!), Jason Bateman, and Faizon Love. THR says
that "Bell is playing Bateman's wife, Davis plays Favreau's wife, and Akerman plays
Vaughn's." Which begs the only slightly ironic question: Where's the love
Handling the directorial duties is A Christmas
Story's Peter Billingsley.
