Jeff Kinney, author of the record-breaking book series, is here to introduce you to the all-new cast of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. He is coming in direct from the set of this upcoming film! In the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid installment, a family road trip to attend Meemaw's 90th birthday party goes hilariously off course. And it's all thanks to Greg's newest scheme to (finally!) become famous.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul hits theaters everywhere May 19, 2017! And it should prove to be another success for this family franchise. Starring in the movie this time out is Jason Ian Drucker, Charlie Wright, Owen Asztalos, Tom Everett Scott, and Alicia Silverstone. David Bowers directed the movie. With Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson producing.
The first Diary of a Wimpy Kid debuted in 2010 and was directed by Thor Freudenthal from Jeff Kinney's book of the same name.That film featured a main cast that included Zachary Gordon and Devon Bostick. Robert Capron, Rachael Harris, Steve Zahn, and Chloë Grace Moretz also had prominent roles. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules followed in 2011, and then Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days in 2012. David Bowers directed the second two installments.
In this new movie, Greg convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother's 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: to attend a nearby gamer convention. Unsurprisingly, things do not go according to plan and Heffley family antics ensue. Jason Drucker is taking over the role of Greg this time out.
You can get your first look at the all-new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie courtesy of 20th Century Fox. There's plenty of first look footage, along with scenes from the movie as this family sets out on their greatest adventure yet. Even Jeff Kinney thinks it's going to be the best movie in the series.
