Simon Pegg returns to the comedy genre at the end of May as he is back on the big screen with Man Up, which sees him team up with Lake Bell.

Pegg and Bell take on the roles of singles Nancy and Jack who find themselves on a blind date... but all is not what it seems. Man Up looks like it is going to be a lot of a fun and sees Ben Palmer in the director's chair.

Palmer is not stranger to the comedy genre as this is his first feature film since he enjoyed critical and commercial success with The Inbetweeners Movie back in 2011 - since then he has been working on a string of TV projects.

There is still a few weeks before Man Up hits the big screen but we have a great new clip from the film to share with you:

Pegg and Bell are not the only faces to watch out for on the cast list as Olivia Williams, Ophelia Lovibond, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Rory Kinnear, Stephen Campbell Moore, and Ken Stott are all also on board.

Meet Nancy (Bell): 34, single (still), hung-over (again), and exhausted by the endless futile set ups foisted upon her by well-meaning but clueless friends. As she travels across London to toast another 10 years of her parent's blissfully happy marriage, 40 year old, freshly-hatched divorcee Jack (Pegg) mistakes her for his 24 year old blind date. In a moment of uncharacteristic optimism (or insanity?), Nancy decides to just go with it...

What follows is a chaotic, unconventional, hilarious night neither of them will ever forget. There will be drinking, there will be home truths; there will be an old classmate with a long-standing crush and stalker tendencies. There will be lost divorce papers, lost hopes, competitive indoor sports and an epic venue-to-venue urban triathlon. Oh, and the small matter of Jack finding out that Nancy isn't actually his real blind date.

Man Up is a romantic comedy about being yourself... or perhaps not being yourself. It's about taking chances, making decisions and rolling with the consequences.

Man Up is released 29th May.
