Indie film upstarts the Duplass brothers have a new movie being released to US theaters on July 9th. These recent arrivals to the scene are most notable for their writing/directing/producing work in The Puffy Chair and Baghead. The upcoming comedy is sort of 40 Year Old Virgin meets Step Brothers. It focuses on recently divorced John (John C. Reilly) who gets involved with a woman named Molly (Marisa Tomei) and ends up butting heads with her grown son Cyrus (Jonah Hill).

For all others, this will seem like a strange way of comically celebrating the otherwise complicated (and often hurtful) topics involved.
