Amy Adams, Paul Rudd and Tessa Thompson have joined the cast for the comedy ‘The Invite,’ based on Cesc Gay’s Goya-winning 2020 Spanish film ‘Sentimental.’

The feature tells the story of Joe (Rudd) and Angela (Adams), who after 15 years of marriage, find that their relationship is in a rut. Desperate to have a conversation that isn’t focused on their marital woes, Angela invites their boisterous neighbours, Kayla (Thompson) and Shane, over for cocktails. Joe irritated at having to engage with this disruptive couple, plans to use the occasion to confront them; however, both he and Angela get far more than they bargained for as sparks fly and they discover Shane and Kayla are hosting weekly orgies and have an invite of their own to offer.

Jonathan Dayton will direct from a script by Emmy nominee Rashida Jones and Academy Award winner Will McCormack. Producers include Academy Award nominee David Permut (Hacksaw Ridge) for Permut Presentations and FilmNation Entertainment.
