CBS Films has released a teaser of their upcoming summer chick-flick comedy The To-Do List. The film follows the pre-college antics of goody-two-shoes A- grade student and virgin Brandy Clark. Her to-do list changes from the mundane trivialities of her teenage life to include slightly less virtuous tasks, including losing her virginity to lifeguard Rusty Walters.
The To-Do-List stars Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreations), Rachel Bilson (The O.C.), Bill Hader (Men in Black III), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Pitch-Perfect), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), Andy Samburg (Hotel Transylvania) and Scott Porter (Music and Lyrics).
Porter and Bilson have previously worked together on TV series Hart of Dixie. They are typical examples of the sort of actors who will be appearing in this wholesome American comedy. Many have experience in comedy, Mintz-Plasse, Samburg and Hader have all frequently appeared on Saturday Night Live
Written and directed by Maggie Carey, The To-Do List will be her first feature film as she has previously only produced shorts and documentaries.
The To-Do List has all the parts which will make a relatively successful feel-good summer movie. It's hardly ground breaking with similarities to movies such as John Tucker Must Die; Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids. The film is likely to be a harmless rom-com with enough totty to keep the audience -male and female- distracted enough to avoid concentrating too much of the shallow depths of the plot.
The To-Do-List is due for release on 26th July (US) and on 4th October (UK)
Scott Porter and Rachel Bilson who appear together in Hart of Dixie will also star in The To-Do List
