Kentucky native Sarah Wright
aka Sarah Mason recently appeared in rom-com Made of Honor and started a recurring role in the Mad Love comedy series that premiered as a mid-season replacement in February, but that’s not important right now. What I meant to say is that Relativity Media officially announced that thesps Justin Chon
of The Twilight Saga and Skylar Astin
from Hamlet 2 will be joined by Sarah Wright to the core trio in the comedy 21 and Over
Furthermore, Miles Teller
will follow Footloose remake with Hangover-esque comedy 21 and Over from The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas
and Scott Moore
who will helm the film. Teller was cast in the lead role, back in May.
The 21 and Over plot follows two youth friends drag their salt-of-the-earth-buddy out to celebrate his twenty-first birthday the night before a medical school interview. But when one cold beer unavoidably leads to another and another, the evening escalates into a wild epic calamity of wickedness and disorder that none of them will ever forget.
Production is due to start August 2011 in Washington with a release sometimes in 2012.

21 and Over is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman (The Fighter) and Todd Lieberman (The Fighter), in association with Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced. Relativity Media will release the hilarious comedy in which two childhood friends drag their straight-arrow buddy out to celebrate his twenty-first birthday the night before an all-important medical school interview. But when one beer leads to another, the evening spirals into a wild epic misadventure of debauchery and mayhem that none of them will ever forget.
Looking ahead, Relativity will release David Ellis’ Shark Night 3D on September 2, 2011, followed by Marc Forster’s Machine Gun Preacher on September 23, 2011, then the highly-anticipated Immortals on November 11, 2011, starring Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans and Kellan Lutz with John Hurt and Mickey Rourke.
