Keke Palmer and Sacha Baron Cohen will star together in the film Super Toys. The film will hit the 2023 European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin. Charles Roven and Matt Budman will be producing the film. CAA Media Finance will represent the United States distribution rights. FilmNation Entertainment will be selling to international territories. 3 Arts Entertainment and Hertz Lichtenstein Young & Polk LLP represent Palmer. CAA and Ziffren Brittenham represent Baron Cohen.

Super Toys tells the story of Palmer and Baron Cohen’s characters as a duo of “groovy ’70s toy sales reps on a life-and-death mission to save themselves, their marriage and their live-wire 12-year-old daughter while on the road in Middle America.” The film is a drama, as can be expected by the story’s tagline and brief summary. Other cast member announcements have not been released because the film is still in the fairly early stages of pre-production.
