Principal photography has begun on Someone Marry Barry a comedy written and directed by Academy Award-nominee Rob Pearlstein starring Tyler Labine Damon Wayans Jr. Lucy Punch Hayes MacArthur Thomas Middleditch Frankie Shaw and Amanda Lund. Producers are Josephson Entertainment’s Barry Josephson along with Marisa Polvino and Kate Cohen of Straight Up Films. Executive producers are Josephson Entertainment vice-president Alexander Young Madrose Productions’ Jeremy Bailer and Marc H. Simon at Cowan DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard LLP who packaged the project. Someone Marry Barry follows three friends who plot to get rid of their socially inappropriate friend Barry by finding him a wife. But when Barry finally meets a woman she turns out to be just like him and now the guys have to deal with not one but two Barrys. Through their tribulations with this uncensored duo the guys learn some truths about the nature of friendship and love. “Rob Pearlstein is a truly gifted comedy writer/director and his script for Someone Marry Barry is as inappropriate and outrageously funny as the main character of Barry – it really delivers big laughs. Also I have a socially inappropriate friend that's haunted me since high school; perhaps when he sees Rob's film he'll leave me alone. Oh and yes that's the bonus for us producing Someone Marry Barry ” says Josephson. “The funniest most outrageous characters are often relegated to the role of sidekick ” says Pearlstein. “We’re bringing those characters front and center and giving them their own love story. But the movie is also a love story between the friends and at its heart it’s about how friendship endures against all odds.”
