Film centers on a middle-aged man (Vaughn) whose life is turned upside down when he learns he has fathered 533 children through sperm donation. When a few hundred of the children express an irrepressible need to meet their father, he must decide whether to step up and reveal his identity.

Pratt will play a single father of four and lawyer who helps Vaughn’s character with his case. The role is one of the film’s three leads.

Ken Scott, who wrote and directed the original, is writing the script for the English-language studio adaptation and will direct. Original producer Andre Rouleau also is back.

He is repped by CAA and Mosaic.
