Last week, Collider sat down with Miles Teller (Footloose) and Justin Chon (Twilight) to discuss their wild roles in the comedy.

Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writing duo who brought us The Hangover, make their directing debut in the outrageous comedy 21 and Over opening March 1st.  When straight-A college student Jeff Chang’s two friends Casey (Skylar Astin) and Miller (Miles Teller) pay him a surprise visit for his 21st birthday, what was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery just before a critical medical school interview the next morning.

At the Saddle Back Chop House on the Sunset Strip, Lucas and Moore sat down for a roundtable interview about the fun and challenges of co-directing their first feature, bringing to life an epic quest movie that’s also a drinking comedy, divvying up the directing chores, nailing the lingo of a 21-year-old, finding the perfect cast, balancing the outlandish humor, taking the stunts as far as they could go, not panicking when one lead drove over the other lead in a golf cart, and handling a complicated night shoot involving a pep rally with 500 kids, fire, a live buffalo and a drawstring bear on a penis.  They also discussed shooting their new comedy pilot, Mixology, with Larry Charles directing.  Hit the jump to read more.

New Trailer for 21 AND OVER Starring Miles Teller, Justin Chon, and Skylar Astin

21 and over skylar astin miles teller justin chon

Relativity has released a new trailer for 21 and Over, a comedy written and directed by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.  The hijinks are kicked off when Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose) surprise their button-downed friend Justin Chon (Twilight) on his 21st birthday.  Although he has an crucial medical school interview the next morning, you can imagine that the boys get into the kind of trouble that can only come from the writers who thought up The Hangover.

21 and Over has a likable young cast, a small touch that should help it land with its target audience (21 and under, natch).  I see enough potential in this and the first to believe in a funny movie with just a bit of heart (friendship is important, guys), but not so much that I’d bet on it.  Watch the trailer after the jump.  21 and Over opens on March 1, 2013.

New Images from EPIC and 21 AND OVER

by     Posted 1 year, 285 days ago

epic-21-and-over-slice

New images have been released for the animated film Epic and the raunchy comedy 21 and Over.  Both films seem to loudly echo previous flicks.  Epic seems to be very much following in the footsteps of FernGully: The Last Rainforest and Avatar where an outsider learns that the forest is important to people who live in a forest.  As for 21 and Over, writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have returned to the film that made them, The Hangover, with another story about how serious intoxication can lead to chaotic and hilarious consequences.  Judging by the trailer, I’m hoping we get another surprisingly great college comedy like Van Wilder.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Epic opens in 3D on May 24, 2013 and features the voices of Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrell, Jason Sudekis, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, and Johnny Knoxville21 and Over opens March 1, 2013 and stars Miles Teller, Skyler Astin, and Justin Chon.

Exclusive New Images from 21 AND OVER Starring Miles Teller, Justin Chon, and Skylar Astin

Earlier this week we saw the first trailer for the college comedy 21 and Over, and today we’re happy to debut two exclusive new images from the film.  Written and directed by The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the pic stars Justin Chon (Twilight) as a Straight-A student who, on the night of his 21st birthday, has strict orders from his father to rest up for his medical school interview the next morning.  Things go awry when his best friends, played by Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose), surprise him and take him out for a night of debauchery.  These new images tease some of fallout from said debauchery, as Chon’s character finds himself in a rather precarious position.

First Trailer for 21 AND OVER Starring Skylar Astin, Miles Teller, and Justin Chon

Relativity has released the first trailer for 21 and Over, a comedy written and directed by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.  The film stars Justin Chon (Twilight) as a Straight-A student who, on the night of his 21st birthday, has strict orders from his father to rest up for his medical school interview the next morning.  Things go awry when his best friends, played by Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose), surprise him and take him out for a night of debauchery.  Naturally, things go wrong quickly.  Essentially this looks like a college verison of The Hangover, only this time we’ll be following the increasingly outrageous events as they happen rather than simply seeing them in photo form during the credits.  There are a few laughs here and there, and I’m encouraged by Astin and Teller’s previous work so hopefully we’re in for a fun college comedy.

Casting Call: Miles Teller Is 21 AND OVER; Rosie Perez and Lance Reddick Join STILL I RISE

by     Posted 3 years, 98 days ago

We have a few bits of casting news to bring your way this evening. First up, Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole and the upcoming Footloose remake) has signed on to star in Relativity Media’s R-rated comedy 21 and Over. A couple of weeks ago, we reported that the up-and-coming actor was in talks to star in the film which will act as the directoral debut of The Hangover scribes Scott Moore and Jon Lucas. At that time, it was believed that Teller would play one of two childhood friends who get their straight-laced buddy trashed on his 21st birthday, a night that just so happens to be the day before his all important medical school interview. While the studio’s release doesn’t make specific mention, I suppose it could be safe to assume that Teller will in fact take on that role.

Next, Rosie Perez (White Men Can’t Jump) and Lance Reddick (Fringe) have signed on to director Daniel Barnz’s (Beastly) drama Still I Rise. The pair will join a cast that already includes Maggie Gyllenhaal, Holly Hunter, Viola Davis, and Oscar Isaac. As for their respective roles, Variety reports that Perez will play a former teacher who now heads up a school board whereas Reddick will make a turn as Davis’ husband who also happens to be a teacher. Set in Pittsburgh, Still I Rise tells the story of two mothers (Gyllenhaal and Davis) who join forces to transform an inner-city public school. The film is currently eyeing a 2012 release.

Miles Teller in Talks for R-Rated Comedy 21 AND OVER

by     Posted 3 years, 112 days ago

miles-teller-slice

Up and coming actor Miles Teller is in negotiations to star in Relativity’s upcoming R-rated comedy 21 and Over. The film, which is described as The Hangover and Animal House-esque in style, will mark the directorial debut of Hangover scribes Scott Moore and Jon Lucas (though exactly how much of their initial script for The Hangover ended up in the actual film is a matter of debate). THR reports that the story centers on two guys who get their friend trashed for his 21st birthday, and then must find his house in time for his med school interview the next morning during a night that “involves being hunted by a mean sorority and a juiced up male cheerleader.”

Teller is in talks to play one of the two friends, the wilder one of the bunch who instigates pretty much all the terrible things that end up happening. The actor recently starred in Rabbit Hole, and wrapped work on the Footloose remake as well as the Todd Phillips-produced top secret comedy Project X.
