VINCE VAUGHN, SHARON HORGAN SIGN ON FOR THE LAST DROP: Vince Vaughn and Sharon Horgan are set to star in Christopher Storer's romantic dramedy The Last Drop. 21 Laps' Oscar-nominated Shawn Levy and Dan Levine are producing. The story follows culinary show host Clay (Vaughn), a bon vivant whose career is at a crossroads; he encounters Holly (Horgan), a spitfire antiques dealer who sees through Clay and helps him find a new direction in life. "Clay requires a nuanced performance as he is both incredibly charming and seriously flawed, and with Vince's ability to be exceptionally funny while at the same time highly affecting, he is perfectly cast in the role," Levy, Levine and Cohen said in a statement. "We are thrilled to be working with Vince again and can't wait to see the chemistry he and Sharon will share on screen. Chris comes from a strong background of comedy and has really extended his range with ‘Ramy,' which is utterly compassionate while never missing a comedic beat."
