Today we get some new photos from Our Idiot Brother, the upcoming indie comedy starring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones and Emily Mortimer. The film is picking up some great buzz and The Weinstein Company shelled out somewhere between $6 and $7 million for the film at Sundance this year. There are also some great supporting roles here that are filled by strong actors like Steve Coogan, Adam Scott and Catherine Hahn. The film opens August 26th but until then, take a look at the pictures and plot summary below.
Ned Rochlin (Rudd) looks for the good in every situation and in everyone, which often puts him at odds with the world around him – especially his family. Upon being released from jail for a stupid mistake, Ned is kicked off of the organic farm he lives and works on by his ex-girlfriend Janet (Hahn) who also insists on keeping his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. Having nowhere else to go, he turns to his family, three ambitious sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) and an overbearing mother (Knight). Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings honesty, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc.
