Erskine and Quaid portray long-time friends who find themselves in a year all late 20-somethings experience — the one where seemingly every person they know gets married. The two agree to be one another’s plus ones as they power through an endless parade of weddings.

The project re-teams “Pen15” star Erskine with producers Jeremy Reitz and Deborah Liebling.

Mark Ward, chief acquisitions officer for RLJE Films, made the announcement Thursday.

Quaid, the son of Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan, starred in “The Hunger Games” as Marvel, has credits on “Rampage” and “Logan Lucky” and is the lead in Amazon’s upcoming drama “The Boys.” Erskine has starred in “Insecure” and “Casual.”

“Plus One” is set to premiere in Tribeca’s Spotlight Narrative section. Ward and Jess De Leo from RLJE Films and Verve negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
