The comedy film from 20th Century Fox and Hulu will star John Cena (Blockers), Meredith Hagner (Search Party), and Lil Rel Howery (Get Out).

Per Deadline, “Vacation Friends is about a straight-laced couple that has fun with a rowdy couple on vacation in Mexico. When they return to the States, they discover that the crazy couple they met in Mexico followed them back home.”

This will be the directorial debut for Clay Tarver, executive producer of Silicon Valley. Producing is Todd Gardner who’s worked with Cena before in Playing with Fire.

The film has been in the making since 2014 when Fox bought the spec script from co-writing brothers Tom and Tim Mullen. Initially, Chris Pratt and Anna Farris (who were still married at the time) were supposed to star in the film. Ice Cube was also supposed to be featured in the film.
