It’s been three years since Broken Lizard’s last film, The Slammin’ Salmon, and six years since their last semi-hit, Beerfest, but the comedy group is coming back this summer with a fresh new feature. Well, kinda. The Babymakers isn’t technically a Broken Lizard film — while troupe leader Jay Chandrasekhar directs, not all the team members appear, and the ones that do play supporting roles to non-Lizard stars Paul Schneider and Olivia Munn. Still, I’m betting fans will be happy to see at least a partial reunion, and the premise of the film sounds right up their alley.

Written by Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow, The Babymakers centers around a married couple (Schneider and Munn) trying for their first child. When it becomes apparent that husband Tommy is shooting blanks, however, he enlists the aid of his friends in breaking into a sperm bank to retrieve a deposit he made several years ago. Kevin Heffernan, Nat Faxon, Wood Harris, M.C. Gainey, and Aisha Tyler also star. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Until recently, Jim Rash and Nat Faxon were mainly known for their work in front of the camera. But their screenwriting work for last year’s The Descendants changed that, and with this weekend’s Best Adapted Screenplay win, the future’s looking brighter than ever for the pair.

Among their several upcoming projects are an action comedy recently picked up by Indian Paintbrush, which hasĀ Kristen Wiig attached to star. In addition, there’s also another collaboration with Alexander Payne in the works, and a directorial debut with Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney set to star. More after the jump.
