Aubrey Plaza is set to join Zac Efron and Adam Devine in 20th Century Fox and Chernin’s comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.”

Anna Kendrick is also on board to co-star.

Jake Szymanski will direct, with Chernin Entertainment producing along with Jonathan Levine. Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien penned the script, which tells the story of two hard-partying and immature brothers who place an ad online to find dates for a wedding and find a pair of women who can out-party them. Daria Cercek is overseeing the project for Fox.

The project marks a reunion for Plaza and Efron, who recently wrapped production on the Lionsgate comedy “Dirty Grandpa.” The films also allows Plaza to team with Kendrick, with whom she regularly has snarky Twitter exchanges with and previously appeared with in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

Plaza currently stars in Hal Hartley’s dark comedy “Ned Rifle” as Susan, the long-lost flame of Henry Fool in the third and final chapter of Hartley’s trilogy, launched with 1997′s “Henry Fool” and continued with 2007′s “Fay Grim.”

She also recently wrapped the final season of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”

She is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams.
