BASTARDS is an upcoming comedy film directed by veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher (The Hangover film series) in his directorial debut. Sher directs from a screenplay by Justin Malen (Bad Teacher 2).
In the film, Ed Helms and Owen Wilson play Peter and Kyle Reynolds, two brothers whose eccentric mother (Glenn Close) raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father, learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.
J.K. Simmons and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw join the cast as potential father figures. Rounding out the cast are Katt Williams, June Squibb, Kate Aselton, and Ving Rhames.
