A Tale on Fathering 533 Children, 'Delivery Man' Delivers Its First Poster

Dreamworks Pictures presents Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt and Cobie Mulders in “Delivery Man” a comedy about the complexities of life, seizing the day, becoming the person you are destined to be and extreme fatherhood with 533 children. In the film, David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) has always led a simple life. A delivery driver for his family’s meat company, he is seemingly content existing in a state of perpetual mediocrity. While David has a good heart, charming everyone he comes in contact with, he is immature, unfocused, in serious debt and in desperate need of some sense of direction in his life. But when he finds out he is the biological father of 533 children and 142 of them are suing to learn his identity - everything changes. David decides he wants to do the right thing and for once be held accountable for his actions.

Written for the screen and directed by Ken Scott, “Delivery Man” is a re-telling of the 2011 French-Canadian comedy “Starbuck”. With a title derived from a notorious breeding bull with a record-setting number of offspring, the film is about an unremarkable guy who wakes up one day to find he has fathered 533 children. Expanding on the original story with humor and heart, “Delivery Man” revisits this seemingly unlikely but ultimately very possible tale of fatherhood and family.

“Starbuck” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival where it was selected as runner-up for the People’s Choice Award. The film went on to be named Most Popular Canadian Film at the 2011 Vancouver Film Festival and upon its theatrical release, became the most successful Quebec-made film that year. The international popularity of “Starbuck” attracted the attention of many Hollywood producers who wanted to remake the film for American audiences.

Opening soon across the Philippines, “Delivery Man” is a DreamWorks Picture distributed by Walt Disney Studios International.
