The ‘SNL’-Packed ‘Brother Nature’ Is Coming This Fall
Brother Nature, a movie originally announced as Brother in Laws and shot back in 2014, is finally coming out this fall. Produced by Lorne Michael’s under his Broadway Video banner, it’s chock-full of SNL talent — it was written by Cameron Fay with Taran Killam and Mikey Day and directed by SNL directing duo Matt and Oz (Matt Villines tragically passed away last month — this will be his only feature directing credit). It stars Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan, Gillian Jacobs, Rita Wilson, Bill Pullman, Sarah Burns, Ellen Bloodworth, Giancarlo Esposito, Rachael Harris, Kumail Nanjiani, Kenan Thompson and David Wain. Here’s the synopsis:
Roger (Taran Killam), a straight-laced politician has big plans to propose to his dream girl (Gillian Jacobs) at her family’s lake house. But everything goes awry when he meets his potential brother-in-law Todd (Bobby Moynihan): a full-time camp counselor with a heart of gold and a wild sense of fun, pining to be Roger’s best friend, and ultimately catapulting him into a series of unfortunate events. As Roger tries to take a stand amidst outrageous fishing excursions, propulsive water jetpacks and American history-themed musicals, he realizes that being a part of a new family may be more difficult than he’d thought.
The movie hits theaters and on demand on September 9th.
