The upcoming movie will be an R-rated comedy “about a group of four friends traveling through Asia in search of one of their birth mothers.”
According to Variety, “as the women at the center of the film travel through the region, their experience becomes one of bonding, friendship, belonging and no-holds-barred wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are.”
The site reports that the movie has been fast-tracked and is set to film this fall. Lionsgate and Seth Rogen‘s Point Grey Pictures are producing.
