Playdate follows down-on-his-luck Brian (Kevin James), who was just fired from his job and becomes an unexpected stay-at-home dad to his 10-year-old son. On his first day, he accepts a playdate invitation from Jeff (Alan Ritchson), another stay-at-home Dad, who turns out to be an unexpected loose cannon. The two fathers and their sons spend the day on the run, facing a deadly conspiracy.

Alan Ritchson describes the buddy action movie.

We wanted to return to comedy for a few years now and have been looking high and low for the right script. I’m happy to say, not only did the perfect screenplay find me, but I get to partner with comedic legend {Kevin James] and filmmaker extraordinaire [Luke Greenfield].

This is gonna be a fun one – a buddy action comedy with unexpected twists and turns, vibrant characters and a ton of heart.  Can’t wait for you to see what we have in store. — Alan Ritchson on his Instagram.
