Chris Evans and Aubrey Plaza are set to reunite in a new comedy film, it has been announced.

The two actors starred in 2010 film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, with Evans playing Lucas Lee and Plaza playing Julie Powers – roles that they both reprised for the 2023 Netflix anime series along with the entirety of the film's main cast.

Now more than a decade on, Evans and Plaza are both part of the cast of director Ethan Cohen's latest flick, Honey Don't!.

Deadline has reported that the movie is the latest project for Focus Features by the filmmaker, who is also an executive producer on FX anthology drama Fargo alongside his brother Joel.

While plot details are currently being kept under wraps, Honey Don't! will also star Margaret Qualley, which marks the second collaboration between her and Cohen after her role in road trip comedy Drive-Away Dolls.

In Drive-Away Dolls, Cohen's first narrative film written without his brother, Qualley plays free spirit Jamie, alongside Geraldine Viswanathan who plays her demure friend Marian.

The synopsis reads: "In search of a fresh start, the two embark on an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals along the way."

The film, released in cinemas in March, also stars the likes of current Oscar nominee Colman Domingo (Euphoria), Pedro Pascal (The Last of Us), Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart) and Bill Camp (The Queen's Gambit).

Meanwhile, Plaza also stars in new coming-of-age movie My Old Ass, alongside Nashville's Maisy Stella and dancer Maddie Ziegler. The film follows queer teenager Elliott (Stella) who is about to leave for university, but first takes drugs and has an encounter with her future self (Plaza).

Written and directed by Megan Park, the film has gone down well with Sundance critics, receiving a debut score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Drive-Away Dolls will be released in UK cinemas on March 15, whilst Honey Don't! is yet to receive a release window.
