Emily Blunt and Jason Segel Confirmed to Tour Australia for The Five-Year Engagement

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt - The Five Year Engagement

The Five Year Engagement posterUniversal have announced that Jason Segel will return to our shores with co-star Emily Blunt for the Australian premiere of their comedy The Five Year Engagement.

We last spoke to Jason Segel in December when he toured the country for The Muppets, and we spoke to him about the writing process with Nicholas Stoller.

Comic genius Jason Segel will join hands with delightful Golden Globe ® winner Emily Blunt, and head to our shores on Monday 30th April (Sydney) and Wednesday 2nd May (Melbourne) to talk us through the trials and tribulations of one of the longest engagements ever to hit the big screen!

The director and writer/star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall reteam for the irreverent comedy The Five-Year Engagement. Beginning where most romantic comedies end, the new film from director Nicholas Stoller, producer Judd Apatow (Bridesmaids, Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Rodney Rothman (Get Him to the Greek) looks at what happens when an engaged couple, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle. The film was written by Segel and Stoller.

The Five Year Engagement is released in Australia on 3 May 2012 from Universal.
