From a script by “The Hangover” scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, story revolves around a responsible family man (Bateman) who accidentally swaps bodies with his best friend, a slacker, single actor who refuses to grow up (Reynolds).

Olivia Wilde also stars in the comedy, which Neal Moritz and Dobkin are producing.

Mann’s bigscreen credits include “Funny People” and “Knocked Up.” She’s next in theaters in December in Jim Carrey-Ewan McGregor comedy “I Love You Phillip Morris.”
