The big-city type isn’t usually cut out for rural life. But Andrew will endure it in Tumbledown in order to secure permission from Hannah to write about her late husband, a folk singer.
The twist on characters in the rom-com canon is what drew Sudeikis to the script.
“They’re strange bedfellows who kind of have to get through their s–t as individuals to sort of deal with it and be in the best place for one another. They’ve been through a lot, and they’re just both sort of healing from different wounds,” Sudeikis told EW after the film’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere.
“I also liked how my character was unapologetic in his brashness and being abrasive and not being too much of a salesman. I mean, right off the bat, they’re sort of insulting each other, and that felt kind of old-school to me, you know, like His Girl Friday or something.”
See the trailer above. Tumbledown, also starring Dianna Agron, Joe Manganiello, and Blythe Danner, bows Feb. 5 in New York and Los Angeles, and nationwide and iTunes on Feb. 12.
