Today, following the release of supremely awkward music video Netflix released an official comedy trailer last month.
A familiar tale of bullshit whose good nature and strength of will propel them towards success, the film also presents Pierce Brosnan as the handsome of Ferrell, disapproving father.
“Will thought the most demoralizing thing on this planet would be someone so cool Pierce Brosnan just thinking that you are a total loser,” Dobkin said in an interview with USA today. “Pierce was like,” God, I’m so mean. “But it’s really, really funny. ”
Dan Stevens and Demi Lovato complete the cast of the comedy, which will be released on Netflix on June 26.
