Bad Teacher Reunion Sets Cameron Diaz And Jason Segel For Jake Kasdan's Comedy Sex Tape
There are many ways I could write an introductory paragraph about a film called Sex Tape, but nearly all of them would either land me in some sort of a detainment center or, at the very least, get some fairly specific judgment thrown my way. So instead, let all forms of judgment, good and bad, be passed on to Sony and production company Escape Artists.
Theyíre in talks to sign Cameron Diaz to co-star with Jason Segel in Jake Kasdanís upcoming comedy Sex Tape, according to The Wrap. This is the trifecta that made 2011ís Bad Teacher a surprise hit, despite its flaws, so itís no surprise that a quick reteaming is out of the question. And itís always good to see Segel and Kasdan reunite, given the fact that they kind of reached their breakout fame together in the beloved series Freaks and Geeks. But yeah, itís good that Diaz could be back on the team, too. This is the kind of screwball comedy plotline that she works best in, delivering her most admirable Goldie Hawn-ish performance.
Diaz, who was actually in talks to star in the film a year ago, will play Segelís wife in Sex Tape, written on spec by Kate Angelo (The Back-Up Plan). The titular object is created by the couple one night to spice up their relationship as they take advantage of their kids being out of the house. But when they wake up, the tape is gone, and they spend the film trying to figure out who could have possibly taken it. Hilarity ensues.
Diaz will next be seen in Michael Hoffman's Gambit, and will star in in Ridley Scottís lawyer drama The Counselor, and is also set to star in John Cassavetesí infidelity revenge comedy The Other Woman.
