Not a lot of cast announcements this week, as Sundance has a great deal of Hollywood on hold. But there’s one big story and a handful of small ones to report. The big one is that Will Ferrell is reportedly going to star in a remake of I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single. That’s a French film from 2006, and in this version Ferrell would play “a 40-something bachelor whose seven sisters and mom try to force him to get married, prompting him to ask a friend’s sister to leave him at the altar so that everyone will leave him alone.” No writer or director is yet on board.

After the break, new projects for Jay Mohr, Mandy Moore and Kellan Lutz.

Joy Mohr has joined the cast of Clint Eastwood‘s new film Hereafter, which also features Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard. Mohr will be Damon’s brother; Damon is “a factory worker named George, who can talk to, and perhaps see the dead. [Variety]

Kellan Lutz, who lost the role of Conan the Barbarian to Jason Momoa, has signed to work opposite Mandy Moore in Love, Wedding, Marriage. They’ll be husband and wife; she’s a relationship councelor who puts her own marriage on the rocks when she focuses too heavily on keeping her parents together. [Just Jared]

Finally, here are some other brief notes:

Kyra Sedgwick and Vincent D’Onofrio are signed for the indie Chlorine, from director Jay Alaimo. Film is about “a family struggling to maintain their well-to-do lifestyle in their overly materialistic New England community,” with things pushed to a head when Sedgwick’s character pushes husband D’Onofrio into a bad business deal. [THR]

Kristina Anapau is now in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, where she’ll play Galina, a dancer who is competing against Natalie Portman’s character Nina for the lead role in Swan Lake. [Variety]

Crystal Reed has joined Skyline, the “survivors versus aliens” flick from AvP: Requiem directors Colin and Greg Strause. [Variety]
