Lionsgate‘s Summit Entertainment has debuted a new Long Shot clip, which features Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron’s characters discussing their dating life in the May 3 release.
Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she’s a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for… well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush.
When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte’s elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.
From the celebrated team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, creators of outrageous comedy hits including Sausage Party, Neighbors franchise, and Knocked Up, Long Shot also features O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Den of Thieves, Straight Outta Compton), Andy Serkis (Black Panther, Planet of the Apes), June Diane Raphael (The Disaster Artist, Grace & Frankie), Ravi Patel (Master of None), and Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies and The Legend of Tarzan).
Directed by Jonathan Levine, the script was written by Dan Sterling and Liz Hannah from a story by Sterling. The producers are Charlize Theron, A.J. Dix, Beth Kono, Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, and James Weaver.
