The duo’s camaraderie was evident, sharing light moments and a box of fried food with Ansari, hinting at the film’s convivial atmosphere, as reported by Daily Mail.

Joe Drake, the chair of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, has expressed his excitement about the project. His confidence in the script and the unique blend of talents – Ansari, Reeves, and Rogen – underscores the film’s potential to be a standout in the comedy genre.
