EXCLUSIVE: Steve Carell & Jon Stewart’s ‘Irresistible’ Currently Eyeing April 22nd Production Start in Atlanta

Mar 14, 2019

The sophomore film from Jon Stewart, the actor-turned-director, is now coming together. His next film ‘Irresistible’ is currently eyeing an April 22nd production start in Atlanta, Georgia.

Stewart is the former host of ‘The Daily Show,’ who left the Comedy Central series to pivot to directing. Then, in 2014, he made his feature film directorial debut with ‘Rosewater,’ starring Gael García Bernal.

Moreover, Steve Carell (‘The Office,’ ‘Vice’) will be playing the lead role in the political satire. And, last we heard, Rose Byrne (‘Bridesmaids,’ ‘Instant Family’) is nearing a deal to play the cutthroat Republican counterpart of Carell’s character, who campaigns on behalf of the local mayor.

The premise is below:

“A slick Democratic strategist (Carell) helps a retired veteran run for Mayor in a small, right-wing town in Wisconsin — which is, of course, a swing state.”

Focus Features has not set a release date for the film as of now.
