There have been plenty of delays this year thus far, but the one film constantly pushed back has been the road trip comedyThe Guilt Trip starring Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand as a mother/son duo. Originally slate for a March release, the upcoming feature was pushed to Thanksgiving until getting yet another delay to the incredibly crowded December. While we still don’t have a first trailer for the film just yet, it seems Paramount is ready to unveil the first footage from The Guilt Trip soon as they have revealed the first photo today.
Andy Brewster (Rogen) is an inventor who lives in Los Angeles. He’s come up with an amazing organic cleaner but can’t get anyone interested in manufacturing it. Andy plans a business trip to promote the product and decides to take his recently-widowed mother (Streisand) along for the ride. She’s been despondent since his father died, so he comes up with a great idea—during the trip he’ll surprise her with a stop in San Francisco, where one of her ex-flames lives.
Originally called My Mother’s Curse, the script was penned by Dan Fogelman who has been responsible for Disney filmsTangled, Cars, Bolt, and last year’s well received live-action rom-com Crazy Stupid Love.
