Marlon Wayans is back in a starring role, folks. The 44-year-old actor plays Rob Anderson in the upcoming Netflix romantic comedy, Naked.
The film is a remake of the 2000 Swedish comedy Naken. In the movie, Wayans plays a “charming man-child” who is super nervous about getting married to Megan Swope, played by the wonderful Regina Hall. Wayans’ character hasn’t written his vows, learned how to dance or paid much attention to the ring.
“Instead of taking care of his responsibilities, Rob goes out for a night on the town with his best man. Then something unexpected happens… Rob wakes up naked in an elevator with no idea how he got there. When the elevator doors open Rob is shocked to find that it’s late in the morning and he has only one hour to get to the church or miss his own wedding. He encounters many obstacles as he tries desperately to get to the chapel only to find himself waking up in the elevator again and again.”
So you get the picture, right? He must live this hour repeatedly until he grows up and becomes the man his fiancée deserves. I have to admit, I’m a sucker for ‘Groundhog Day‘ type movies, so I’m excited to watch this movie.
It’s set to be released worldwide on Netflix August 11.
