Vince Vaughn Comedy Starbuck Changes Its Title To The Delivery Man
We've been calling this one for a while, but today the move has finally been made. The new Vince Vaughn sperm-donor comedy Starbuck is a remake of the French Canadian film of the same name from last year, but as long as the project has been in pre-production we've predicted that the name wouldn't stick around long. Now the title has officially been changed.
Coming Soon has learned that the film has changed its name from Starbuck to The Delivery Man. While the site doesn't say why the title was switched, one can assume it has something to do with a certain mega huge insanely popular chain of coffee stores. The film is being directed by Ken Scott - who also directed the original movie - and the supporting cast includes Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Ben Bailey and Britt Robertson.
The film follows the tale of a middle-aged man (Vaughn) who learns that he has managed to father 533 children from sperm donations that he made when he was younger to collect quick cash. He then learns that 142 of those children are filing a class action lawsuit to find out who their dad is, that his police officer girlfriend (Smulders) is pregnant, and that he owes $80,000 to someone who very much wants to be paid.
The Delivery Man is being made by DreamWorks Pictures, but a release date has not yet been announced. Production is scheduled to begin this December in New York City, which means we can likely expect it in theaters sometime in fall 2013.
