*Netflix has revealed a first teaser and release date for “Naked,” its remake of the 2000 Swedish comedy, “Naken,” starring Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall.
The film borrows heavily from “Groundhog Day,” with Wayans playing a man who keeps waking up naked in an elevator on the day of his wedding, and must piece together the reasons why his life is suddenly on a 24 hour loop.
Hall co-stars as Wayans’ soon-to-be wife.
Here’s the full synopsis via Netflix:
When Rob Anderson (Wayans), a charming man-child, arrives in Charleston the night before he is about to marry the woman of every man’s dreams, Megan Swope (Hall), he hasn’t written his vows, learned the steps for the first dance, or even remembered to bring the ring. Instead of taking care of his responsibilities, Rob goes out for a night on the town with his best man (Jonathan Todd Jackson). Then something unexpected happens… Rob wakes up naked in an elevator with no idea how he got there. When the elevator doors open Rob is shocked to find that it’s late in the morning and he has only one hour to get to the church or miss his own wedding. He tries desperately to get to the chapel, streaking through a city marathon, stealing clothes, avoiding capture by local police, a near death confrontation with a vicious motorcycle gang, and many other obstacles only to find himself waking up in the elevator again and again. Some unknown force has conspired to make Rob live this hour repeatedly until he finally grows up and becomes the man that his amazing fiancée deserves to marry.
Michael Tiddes, who directed Wayans in “A Haunted House” and “Fifty Shades of Black,” helms from a script adaptation penned by Wayans, Cory Koller, and Rick Alvarez.
Netflix will premiere “Naked” on August 11.”
