Stand-up star Russell Peters will take a lead role in Three for the Road, a raunchy buddy road movie comedy from writer/director Brian Herzlinger (My Date With Drew). The Canadian comedian will play Jack, a 38-year-old geek whose fiancee dumps him during their Star Wars-themed wedding for being "too immature." Looking to pick up his spirits, Jack's best friend Ben invites him to join him on a cross-country road trip with his own fiancee (and Jack's nemesis) Kara. What was supposed to be a romantic trip for two becomes a battle for Ben's affection.

So it’s a huge thrill to be joining the team of Kamala Films and FilmNation as the director of the film based on it.”
