The full-length trailer has arrived for the upcoming comedy The Delivery Man, the remake of Ken Scott’s 2011 French-Canadian comedy Starbuck. Ken Scott untraditionally directed the remake of his own film, which centers on a man (Vince Vaughn) who discovers news that turns his life upside down. Check out the trailer below.
David Wozniak’s mundane life is turned upside down when he finds out that he fathered 533 children through sperm donations he made twenty years earlier. In debt to the mob, rejected by his pregnant girlfriend, things couldn’t look worse for David when he is hit with a lawsuit from 142 of the 533 twenty-somethings who want to know the identity of the donor. As David struggles to decide whether or not he should reveal his true identity, he embarks on a journey that leads him to discover not only his true self but the father he could become as well.
Judging from the trailer, this looks like it’s going to be very similar to the original film, which isn’t a bad thing at all because Starbuck is a strong film with good doses of humor and drama (read my review here). Hopefully this film will allow Vaughn to bounce back because it’s such a role that is bound to display Vaughn’s comedic talent and give him the opportunity to prove himself more seriously during the more dramatic moments.
The Delivery Man arrives in theaters on November 22nd. The film also stars Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Jack Reynor, and Britt Robertson. What do you think of the trailer?
