Jenny Slate, Gina Rodriguez, Charlie Day & More To Star in Amazon's 'I Want You Back'

Jenny Slate and Gina Rodriguez have been cast in a brand new project together called I Want You Back.

The two actresses will star alongside Charlie Day, Scott Eastwood, Clark Backo, and Manny Jacinto in the Amazon Studios project, Deadline reports.

The film follows Emma (Slate) and Peter (Day) who thought they were on the precipice of life’s biggest moments – marriage, kids, and houses in the suburbs – until their respective partners dumped them.

In their thirties and terrified that they have missed their shot at happily ever after, Emma and Peter are horrified to learn that their partners have already moved on.

With no prospects on the horizon and the threat of dying alone hanging over their heads, they hatch a desperate plan to put an end to their exes’ new relationships and win them back.

Jason Orley will direct the film.

“I immediately fell in love with Isaac [Aptaker] and Elizabeth [Berger]’s funny, heartfelt script and I am so honored that they, along with the amazing team at Amazon are allowing me to bring their timeless love story to life and that I get to do it with such an incredible group of actors,” he said in a statement.

If you didn’t see, Jenny just recently welcomed her first child. Find out their name here!
