‘Ideal Home’ First Look: Paul Rudd & Steve Coogan Star As A Bickering Couple In Quirky Comedy

'Ideal Home' First Look: Paul Rudd & Steve Coogan Star As A Bickering Couple In Quirky Comedy

Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan team up to star in the latest Andrew Fleming-directed (“Nancy Drew”) film titled, “Ideal Home.” Indiewire has your first look at the quirky comedy. 

The film centers around Paul (Rudd) and Erasmus (Coogan), a bickering couple with an elegantly curated and care-free life in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Erasmus is a demanding popular celebrity and Paul is his more hesitant partner and sidekick. Life is definitely extravagant for this twosome, especially when during a high class dinner party Erasmus’ 10-year-old grandson, who he never knew he had, appears on their doorstep with nowhere else to go. The couple take the child in, but soon find out that they are the worst caretakers ever, making every possible parenting mistake.

Fleming also penned the script. Aaron Ryder, Gabriella Tana, Maria Theresa Arida, Clark Peterson and Maxime Remillard serve as producers. Production is underway for the film in Santa Fe, with Fortitude International handling foreign rights to the film in Cannes.

“Ideal Home” is targeting a premiere at Sundance next year.
