Seth Rogen and Keanu Reeves have been cast in Good Fortune, a new film starring, written by and directed by Aziz Ansari.
The plot of the Lionsgate-housed comedy, which begins filming in L.A next month, is being kept under wraps.
Lionsgate Motion Picture Group head Joe Drake said, “We have indeed found good fortune with this film. We love the script and believe strongly in Aziz as both a performer and a director. And when you add in Seth and Keanu — two incredible world-class talents — toplining alongside Aziz, this has the potential to be a very special film for us. We moved quickly to land this project once it was available.”
Ansari had been set to make his directorial debut on the Searchlight project Being Mortal in 2022 but production was suspended after an on-set complaint of inappropriate behavior involving actor Bill Murray.
