Vince Vaughn and Kevin James headline an all-star comedy from director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer about a man who finds out that what you don’t say to a friend is just as important as what you do. Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Channing Tatum and Queen Latifah join them in “The Dilemma”: a story of how far you can bend a brotherly bond before it snaps.
Since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) have been through thick and thin. Now partners in an auto design firm, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would launch their company. With Ronny’s girlfriend, Beth (Connelly), and Nick’s wife, Geneva (Ryder), by their sides, they’re unbeatable.
But Ronny’s world is turned upside down when he inadvertently sees Geneva out with another man and makes it his mission to get answers. As the amateur investigation dissolves his world into comic mayhem, he learns that Nick has a few secrets of his own. Now, with the clock ticking and pressure mounting on the biggest presentation of their careers, Ronny must decide what will happen if he reveals the truth to his best friend.
Principal photography for “The Dilemma” began on May 25, 2010 and runs through Aug. 6, 2010. After filming all around Chicago, the project most recently filmed at the United Center. We have learned that the scenes used up to 900 extras as Chicago Blackhawks fans on a single day. “The Dilemma,” which will be released on Jan. 14, 2011, will film this Friday in Chicago’s Chinatown.
