Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau Reunite at 'Retreat'


They were "Swingers" and "Made" men, but now Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau are packing for a "Couples Retreat."

According to Variety, the frequent co-stars will join Jason Bateman ("Hancock") and Faizon Love ("Elf") in the comedy "Couples Retreat." Set up at Universal, the film is based on a script by Favreau and will be directed by Peter Billingsley.

Vaughn actually hatched the idea for "Couples Retreat," which focuses on four couples who go to an island resort to work on their marriages, some committed to the process, others just committed to a vacation. Hilarity ensues when it becomes clear that the resort's therapy isn't optional.

In addition to generating the premise, Vaughn's Wild West Picture Show will also produce along with Scott Stuber's Stuber Productions.

"Couples Retreat" could shoot as soon as late October in Bora Bora and Los Angeles.

Favreau will fit in his "Couples" acting stint before going back behind the camera for a second "Iron Man" feature.

Vaughn will be seen in this fall's "Four Christmases."

Oh and yes, "Christmas Story" fans, the Billingsley directing this film is, indeed, little Ralphie, all grown up. While this will be his feature directing debut, Billingsley has been working regularly as a producer on films including "Made" and "The Break-Up."
