There are some projects that go into pre-production with titles that you just know you'll never see on a poster at the local cinema. From A Couple of Dicks (changed to Cop Out) to Fuckbuddies (changed to No Strings Attached), there's a certain point where the studio or the MPAA steps in to wag their fingers and shake their heads. When it was first announced that a comedy called The Hand Job was being developed, a clock began ticking away the moments until the title was finally the changed. While that time has come, the good news is that the film has added two new cast members.

The Playlist has learned that Clark Gregg and Rachel Bilson have joined the film, which will henceforth be known as The To Do List. Written and directed by Maggie Carey, the cast already includes Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader (Carey's husband), Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Scott Porter, D.C. Pierson and Dominic Dierkes. The plot centers on a young, straight-A student about to graduate high school (Plaza) who decides that she is going to spend the summer before college gaining as much sexual experience as she can. The title refers to the list of all the sexual acts she wants to do. While it's not official, the site believes that Gregg will be playing Plaza's father while Bilson will be her older sister. Production is expected to begin shortly, as Plaza and Glover's NBC comedies, Parks and Recreation and Community, are scheduled to begin shooting their next seasons at the end of the summer.

While the film's cast is absolutely outstanding (easily the best collection of young funny people working today), there's always the possibility that the project will try to do to much as it can to best utilize the entire cast and end up a mess. That said, the movie's premise is fantastic and proper execution could make it a hit.
