Kristin Davis and Kristen Bell join Couples Retreat

Couples Retreat, the new comedy from Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, has just injected a little more oestrogen in the shape of Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Malin Ackerman.

The comedy finds four blokes – Vaughn, Favreau, Jason Bateman and Faizon Love on a tropical island resort. They’re hoping to get some serious relaxation in, but when one of the mens’ wives drags him into couples therapy, the others are encouraged to join them.

The Hollywood Reporter mentions that Sex And The City’s Kristin Davis will play Favreau’s wife, while Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Kristen Bell is Bateman’s And Malin Ackerman, soon to be seen in Watchmen, is Vaughn’s other half.

Peter Billingsley Directing

Peter Billingsley, Favreau and Vaughn’s long-time producing partner, is stepping up to direct the comedy, which Favreau wrote. They’re about to start filming in Bora Bora.

We predict Favreau will spend every free moment between shots feverishly working on Iron Man 2. No sleep until you’re done, Jon.
