A brand new series of clips have arrived for the hilarious comedy Father Figures.

Comedy legends Owen Wilson and Ed Helms star in the movie, marking the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher (The Hangover films).

Wilson and Helms are Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out together to find their real father, and end up learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.

The film also stars J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), comedian Katt Williams, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames (the Mission Impossible films), Harry Shearer (The Simpsons), and Oscar nominee June Squibb (Nebraska), with Oscar winner Christopher Walken (The Jungle Book), and Oscar nominee Glenn Close (The Girl with All the Gifts) as the twins’ mother.

Sher directed from a screenplay by Justin Malen (Office Christmas Party). The film was produced by Academy Award nominee Ivan Reitman (Up in the Air), Ali Bell (Draft Day), and Academy Award nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove (The Blindside). Serving as executive producers were Tom Pollock, Scott Parish, Chris Cowles, Chris Fenton, and Timothy M. Bourne.

Sher’s behind-the-scenes team included director of photography John Lindley (St. Vincent), production designer Stephen H. Carter (art director, Birdman), editor Dana E. Glauberman (Draft Day), and two-time Oscar nominated costume designer Julie Weiss (Frida, Twelve Monkeys). The music was composed by Rob Simonsen (Foxcatcher).

Justin Malen’s Office Christmas Party was a genuine welcome surprise so his script coupled with two comedy greats in the form of Owen Wilson and Ed Helms should prove to be comedy gold.
