2013 is looking to be a great year for Australian actress Rose Byrne. Following a memorable turn in the 2011 comedy “Bridesmaids” Byrne is set to add to her resume with another romantic comedy, “Tumbledown“.
American actor and comedian Jason Sudekis also stars as a New York writer who charges into Byrne’s rural town in Maine when he decides to investigate the death of her husband, a folk-music hero. The Wrap reports that production will begin in October. Sean Mewshaw will direct from a script by Desi Van Til.
Olivia Munn and Joe Manganiello (who both co-starred in last year’s hit “Magic Mike”) will join Sudekis and Byrne in the indie pic.
Earlier last month Byrne joined negotiations to star in two long-awaited films, “Townies” which is currently in production and stars Seth Rogen as a family man who lives near a fraternity house and finds himself at odds with one of the frat brothers (Zac Efron), and the emsemble comedy “This Is Where I Leave You“. Most recently seen in the hit indie film “The Place Beyond The Pines“, Byrne will next be seen in Shawn Levy’s comedy “The Internship”, and a sequel to horror film “The Insidious”, “The Insidious 2“.
