Owen Wilson and Ed Helms star in the Alcon Entertainment comedy "Father Figures," marking the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher. Wilson and Helms are Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out together to find their real father, and end up learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know. The film also stars Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, comedian Katt Williams, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames, Harry Shearer, and Oscar nominee June Squibb, with Oscar winner Christopher Walken, and Oscar nominee Glenn Close, as the twins' mother. Sher directed from a screenplay written by Justin Malen. The film was produced by Academy Award nominee Ivan Reitman, Ali Bell, and Academy Award nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove. Serving as executive producers were Tom Pollock, Scott Parrish, Chris Cowles, Chris Fenton, and Timothy M. Bourne. Sher's behind-the-scenes team included director of photography John Lindley, production designer Stephen H. Carter, editor Dana E. Glauberman, and two-time Oscar nominated costume designer Julie Weiss. The music was composed by Rob Simonsen. "Father Figures" will open in theaters on December 22, 2017. An Alcon Entertainment presentation, a Montecito Picture Company Production in association with DMG Entertainment, "Father Figures" will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company. This film has been rated R for language and sexual references throughout.
