Lake Bell To Direct And Star In ‘What’s The Point?’

Lake Bell To Direct And Star In 'What's The Point?'

A couple years back, the multi-talented Lake Bell made her feature directorial debut with “In A World…” The comedy earned positive notices, and put the actress on the map as a writer/director with a distinct voice, and now she’s gearing up her second effort behind the camera, and it promises to be another compelling picture.

Bell will write, direct and star in “What’s the Point? (And Other Fair Questions About Marriage).” Co-starring Ed Helms, the ensemble comedy investigates the concept that marriage should be a seven-year contract with an option to renew. Sounds like a fun concept, and one that will hopefully stand in contrast to standard rom-com fare.

Production on ‘What’s The Point?’ kicks off next month. See you at Sundance?
