Lake Bell is set to star alongside Simon Pegg in the StudioCanal romantic comedy Man Up, with Ben Palmer (The Inbetweeners) signing on to direct.

The story follows a single woman named Nancy (Lake Bell), who finds the perfect boyfriend when she is mistaken for a stranger's blind date, en route to her parents' anniversary. Simon Pegg is presumably set to play the stranger, although that has not been confirmed.
