LOS ANGELES – A highly anticipated R-rated comedy is set to hit screens next year, promising laughter and chaos. “Ricky Stanicky,” directed by Peter Farrelly, revolves around a childhood prank that has spiraled out of control. Starring John Cena, Zac Efron, Jermaine Fowler, and an ensemble cast, the film tells the story of three best friends who create an imaginary friend named Ricky Stanicky to cover up their mischievous acts.

The film takes us on a journey two decades later, as Dean, JT, and Wes (played by Efron, Andrew Santino, and Fowler) still rely on Ricky Stanicky as an excuse for their immature behavior. However, trouble arises when their partners and spouses become skeptical and demand to meet the elusive Mr. Stanicky. To avoid exposure, the trio enlists the help of “Rock Hard” Rod, a washed-up actor and notorious impersonator played by Cena.

With a screenplay by Jeff Bushell and an impressive cast featuring Lex Scott Davis, Anja Savcic, Jeff Ross, and William H. Macy, the film promises a hilarious and wild ride.
