Road trip movies have been a movie staple for decades, from Bob Hope and Bing Crosby’s “Road To…” travel comedies of the 1940s to ’80s classics like “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” to modern comedies like “Guilt Trip,” “Due Date,” or “Get Him to the Greek.” But here’s an upcoming road trip comedy with a “literary twist,” as described by Variety.
First announced by Deadline in May 2019, “Best Sellers” is a new comedy-drama that’s aiming to be the next road trip film to join the classics. Like many great road movies, it stars a pair of actors who are about as different as the characters they play: one is a comedy star, while the other is a multiple-time Academy Award winner.
The premiere for this intriguing film is just around the corner. Here’s everything we know so far about “Best Sellers.”
