As his reunion with Owen Wilson is in the can and ready to release as one of the first R-rated comedies in Summer 2013, Vince Vaughn has already moved to lead his own comedy with Starbuck. A remake of last year's feature of the same name, it will be Vaughn's first solo-headlining title since Fred Claus. Now, Buena Vista is making some serious movements regarding the film's release as it not only has landed a new name along with a theatrical debut while the actor has lined up his next film.
Already filming now with Colbie Smulders, Britt Robertson and more, Vaughn's next project has been retitled from Starbuck to the new moniker The Delivery Man. On top of that, Buena Vista has set a release date for around this time next year with an October 4th, 2013 bow. Directed by Ken Scott, the name change further distances the remake from the source material, the Canadian comedy of the same name that the film is an adaptation from, and aims for a more tongue-in-cheek approach to the main plot.
The Delivery Man follows Vaughn's character who was a sperm bank donor countless times in his youth as he sought a way to make a quick buck. Fast forward years later when a group of the fatherless children band together to petition the sperm bank in releasing his information so they can discover how their birth parent really is.
Meanwhile, Vaughn is taking a bit of a genre change as he has decided to team up with friend and director Peter Billingsley as the actor has signed on to star in action thriller Triple Time. Vaughn will executive produce under his Wild West banner, while no major studio is currently attached.
Variety, who reported on the deal, reveals the plot deals with a "a broke U.S. marshal (Vaughn) tasked with escorting a prisoner accused of an environmental disaster to Washington, D.C. When their transport plane explodes, the unlikely pair must work together to figure out who is behind the conspiracy, which may include one of them." There is no set production start.
