James Marsden and Nick Frost are in talks to join Vince Vaughn's new comedy caper, 'Business Trip'

James Marsden and Nick Frost are in talks to star in Vince Vaughn comedy 'Business Trip'.

The 'X-Men' and 'The Word's End' stars are close to signing on for roles alongside the funnyman in his next project about an American businessman whose trip to Europe ends in debauchery and chaos.

The Wrap reports that both actors would take on supporting roles in the movie, which will also star '21 Jump Street' hunk Dave Franco.

Vaughn has history with the film's director Ken Scott, who recently directed him in 'Delivery Man', a comedy that is due for release later this year.

British comedian Frost recently starred in the final part of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy, 'The World's End', after previously working together for 2004's 'Shaun of the Dead' and 2008's 'Hot Fuzz'.

He next stars alongside Chris O'Dowd and Rashida Jones in 'Cuban Fury'.

Meanwhile, Marsden is can be seen in supporting roles in '2 Guns' and 'The Butler' and is currently filming 'Welcome to Me', an indie comedy which co-stars Kristen Wiig.

'Business Trip' is being produced by New Regency for release next year.

  • Directed by: Ken Scott
  • Written by: Steve Conrad
  • Cast: Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, Tom Wilkinson
  • UK release: 6 March 2015

Daniel (Vaughn) is a doting father and husband and the sensitive, indefatigable boss of Tim (Wilkinson) and Mike (Franco), who he takes on a business trip to Europe. Chaotic, meandering and unbelievable business comedy with admittedly great casting, even if Wilkinson gets too little screen time. Brainless, but heartfelt.
