In the film, Nancy (Lake Bell) is a delightfully unconventional 30-something singleton, who has lots to offer but hasn’t met the right guy. Recently heartbroken Jack (Simon Pegg), has embraced the brave new world of online dating and stumbles into Nancy at a station mistaking her for his blind date. No one is more surprised than Nancy when she decides to play along with the charade and go on the date with him! After a night of pretending to be someone she’s not, Nancy decided to Man Up and be her painfully honest self…
A joint collaboration with Big Talk Productions, who released the hugely successful Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Man Up is directed by Ben Palmer (“The Inbetweeners”). The film has already garnered industry attention after the script, written by Tess Morris, appeared on the prestigious 2011 Brit List, which ranks the best unproduced screenplays in the UK and Ireland.
