Jon Stewart’s Irresistible to be released on OTT
The film stars Steve Carell, Rose Byrne, Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace, and Natasha Lyonne
Jon Stewart's Irresistible will skip its scheduled theatrical release on May 29, and premiere instead on Apple TV+ on June 26. The film joins other delayed projects like Tom Hanks' Greyhound and Judd Apatow and Pete Davidson's The King of Staten Island.
Irresistible will be Stewart's second film as a writer and director. His first film, Rosewater, received lukewarm reviews.
Irresistible stars Steve Carell, Rose Byrne, Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace, and Natasha Lyonne. The story revolves around a Democratic political consultant (Carell) who helps a retired Marine colonel (Chris Cooper) run for mayor in a small right-wing town. However, he gets surprised when the Republican National Committee sends in his enemy (Byrne) to lead the opposition.
The film is produced by Stewart, Lila Yacoub, and Plan B Entertainment's Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.
