News   Paul Rudd, Hugh Dancy, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley Knight Star in "Our Idiot Brother," Opening in August The Weinstein Company's "Our Idiot Brother," which features several theatre actors, will open in movie theatres nationwide Aug. 26.

Directed by Jesse Peretz, the cast includes Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy, Rashida Jones, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley Knight, TJ Miller, Janet Montgomery and Adam Scott.

Evgenia Peretz and David Schigall penned the screenplay.

"Every family has one: the sibling who is always just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together," according to production notes. "For sisters Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned (Paul Rudd), an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue.

"As Liz, Miranda and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned’s family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him, Ned isn’t such an idiot after all."

Producers are Anthony Bregman, Peter Saraf and Marc Turletaub. For more information visit http://ouridiotbrother.com.
