Ed Helms off to Cedar Rapids

Hangover star switches from Vegas to... Iowa?

The Hangover's Ed Helms is looking to capitalise on the movie's success, agreeing to star in indie comedy Cedar Rapids.

Phil Johnston penned the script, which finds a naive Wisconsin businessman shocked by the death of his corporate role model.

He then learns he has to represent his company at a big insurance conference in the titular city, and he ends up more than a little overwhelmed.

While this is the sort of regular bloke Helms can play in his sleep, hopefully he'll bring something else to the table as he did with The Hangover...

Sideways' Alexander Payne is producing the movie, and Miguel Arteta - who is about to unleash Michael Cera in Youth In Revolt - is directing.
