Prime Video has obtained the rights to the upcoming comedy ‘Ricky Stanicky’, which is from filmmaker Peter Farrelly. Zac Efron and John Cena have signed on for the leading roles in the movie. Joining them will be comedic actor Jermaine Fowler.
“I’m very grateful to Amazon, as well as Paul Currie, Thorsten Schumacher, and John Jacobs, for finally bringing Ricky Stanicky to life,” Farrelly said in a statement. “This has been a dream project of mine for many years but to end up with a cast this crazy good makes the wait more than worthwhile.”
“In the film, three friends invent a character to use to get out of tricky predicaments, but they have to hire an actor to portray their fictional friend when their significant others become suspicious,” reads the synopsis.
‘Ricky Stanicky’ is directed by Peter Farrelly and co-wrote it with Brian Jarvis and Jim Freeman. Production is expected to begin sometime this month in Melbourne, Australia.
