Aubrey Plaza will be joining the cast of Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, a new comedy from the writers of 2014’s surprise hit Neighbors.

Plaza, who is best known as April from Parks and Recreation, as well as from indie films like Life After Beth and Safety Not Guaranteed, is joining the wedding comedy, which currently stars Zac Efron, Adam DeVine, and Anna Kendrick:

Jake Szymanski will direct, with Chernin Entertainment producing along with Jonathan Levine. Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien penned the script, which tells the story of two hard-partying and immature brothers who place an ad online to find dates for a wedding and find a pair of women who can out-party them. Daria Cercek is overseeing the project for Fox.

Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien previously co-wrote the 2014 comedy Neighbors, which is one of the biggest R-rated comedies ever, while director Jake Szymanski has previously directed mostly television, like Saturday Night Live and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, as well as video shorts for Funny or Die.

Previously, Plaza was in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World with Kendrick, and Plaza recently worked with Efron on Dirty Grandpa, which is currently scheduled for release on Aug. 12, 2016. Plaza also co-starred in The Driftless Area, which had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
