Salma Hayek and Alec Baldwin are headlining comedy "Drunk Parents" from director Fred Wolf.

Variety reported that Hayek, 49, and Baldwin, 57, will portray the Teagartens, a pair of "loving parents who get drunk the night they drop their daughter off at college, leading to bad decisions, a kidnapping and other hijinx." Hayek and Baldwin appeared together in NBC's "30 Rock."

The Fortitude International and Bron Studios flick, which is slated to kick off filming in early 2016, is produced by Robert Ogden Barnum and Aaron L. Gilbert. CW Media Finance's Jason Cloth, Fortitude's Nadine de Barros and Daniel Wagner, and Brillstein Entertainment's Jai Khanna are executive producing, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Wolf and Peter Gaulke penned the screenplay.

"Alec and Salma are both incredibly charismatic, hilarious talents... paired together with this brilliant writing, audiences are going to love watching these two beautiful people take on all odds in 'Drunk Parents,'" said Barnum, as quoted by The Hollywood Reporter.

Fortitude is in charge of the movie's foreign rights and is presenting it to buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival. CAA and UTA are co-representing North American rights, the news outlet noted.

Baldwin was most recently seen in Paramount's "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" starring Tom Cruise and will next appear in Sony's "Concussion" with Will Smith, The Hollywood Reporter wrote. Hayek, on the other hand, currently has two movies out in theaters: Khalil Gibran's "The Prophet" and Tom Vaughan's "Some Kind of Beautiful."

Wolf previously helmed "The House Bunny" and has written other films such as "Tommy Boy," "Black Sheep," "Joe Dirt," "Grown Ups," "Ice Age 2: The Meltdown," and "Black Knight," the news outlet listed.

Salma Hayek Opens Up About Past Fears

Hayek, who is now busy filming Wayne Blair's drama thriller "Septembers of Shiraz," admitted how she used to have fears in the past and how she overcame it.

"I often lied about my age. That was pretty stupid, because I feel great!" she told German magazine TV Movie, as quoted by Belfast Telegraph. "I was scared of marriage. I just didn't want to fail. That's the biggest hurdle I've overcome in my life. Now my life is great, I have a daughter and a wonderful man."

The movie star has a 7-year-old daughter Valentina with husband and Kering owner François-Henri Pinault, the news outlet noted.

"Septembers of Shiraz," which also stars Shohreh Aghdashloo, is based on Dalia Sofer's novel of the same name and set in post-revolutionary Iran. It tells the story of a jeweler who was wrongly accused as a spy by the Revolutionary Guard, a separate report from Variety noted.
