Casting Notes: Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer, Jones Join ‘My Idiot Brother’; Bill Nighy in ‘Shadowland 3D’; Vinnie Jones in ‘The Cape’
Posted on Wednesday, June 9th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
An impressive quartet of actresses has just signed on for My Idiot Brother, the Paul Rudd comedy that we first reported on last week. Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones and Emily Mortimer are all part of the cast as of now. (And just the other night I was wondering how the hell Emily Mortimer seems to have barely aged since appearing in The Ghost and the Darkness in 1996.)
The film is about “an idealist (Rudd) dealing with his over¬bearing mother who crashes at the homes of his three ambitious sisters and brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while also wreaking havoc.” Banks, Deschanel and Mortimer are his sisters, while Jones plays Rudd’s ‘caring, responsible’ girlfriend.
Evgenia Peretz and David Schisgall wrote; Jesse Peretz directs. The film shoots next month in New York City.[THR]
After the break, it’s Bill Nighy in 3D! And Vinnie Jones becomes a super-villain. Again. Read More »
