Film Music Reporter has learned that Michael Andrews will be scoring the upcoming comedy Five-Year Engagement. The movie is produced by Judd Apatow and stars Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans, Chris Pratt and Mindy Kaling. According to the official synopsis, the film looks at what happens when an engaged couple keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle. The film is directed by Nicholas Stoller who worked with composer Lyle Workman on his previous movies Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek. Stoller co-wrote the project’s screenplay with Sarah Marshall writer and star Jason Segal. Andrews has previously worked on several Judd Apatow-produced films, including Apatow’s last directorial effort Funny People and most recently on the hit comedy Bridesmaids, which is currently playing in theaters. No release date has been announced yet for Five-Year Engagement, but the film is expected to be released in 2012 by Universal Pictures.
As previously reported, Andrews also has the comedy Bad Teacher coming out next month. The film is directed by Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) who regularly works with the composer. The movie stars Cameron Diaz as a foulmouthed middle-school teacher who, after getting dumped by her boyfriend, competes with a colleague for the affections of the school’s model teacher. Jason Segel, Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch and Phyllis Smith are co-starring. Bad Teacher will be released on June 17. For more information, visit the official movie website.
