Paul Rudd is, predictably, surrounded by women in the premise for My Idiot Brother, a Brooklyn-set comedy premiering at Sundance later this month. Rudd’s character, an optimistic slacker, manages to complicate the lives of all those around him despite a sunny disposition and good intentions. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.

These photos shed some light on the feel of the movie, which is rife with quirks, including, but not limited to: a hipster neighborhood, alternative lifestyles, pot, and of course, Zooey Deschanel. The film will be something of a mulligan for established music video director Jesse Peretz, who made a name for himself directing several offbeat Foo Fighters videos, including “Learn to Fly,” and “Big Me,” which many may remember as “the Mentos video.” Peretz first stab at a feature was the little-loved The Ex, which fell flat despite a cast that included Jason Bateman, Amanda Peet and Charles Grodin.

Early buzz suggests that Peretz has made the most of his star studded cast that includes, in addition to the aforementioned Rudd and Deschanel, Elizabeth Banks, Adam Scott, Emily Mortimer, and Rashida Jones. My Idiot Brother promises to take a very conventional premise and add some depth and edge that one would expect from this cast and director. No release date is set, but you can bet that will change after the film has tested the waters at Sundance.(The Playlist)
