Leslie Mann And Game Of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Join Cameron Diaz For The Other Woman
If social networking has done anything, it has made public the multitude of people involved in relationships where their significant other is cheating on them. And it's always astounding to see how many of those people get angry at the other person rather than the person who was intentionally defying them. Hopefully Cameron Diaz's new film will be a breath of fresh revenge-filled air, especially since the film is now two cast members closer to production.
The Hollywood Reporter names Leslie Mann and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) as the latest stars to join Diaz in the upcoming comedy The Other Woman, director Nick Cassavetes’ first feature since 2009’s My Sister’s Keeper.
The film will follow Diaz’s character who is chuffed to discover she is the “other woman” in an affair with a cheating husband (Coster-Waldau). Diaz then teams up with the husband’s wife, to be played by Mann, in order to get revenge. Should this show some verve and without limiting its appeal to the most common denominator section of the population, it could very well receive as much critical success as it probably will at the box office.
Mann was last seen in husband Judd Apatow’s This is 40, and will star opposite Emma Watson in the crime comedy The Bling Ring, whose first trailer dropped recently. Coster-Waldau, who was in the surprise horror hit Mama, can be seen on the season three return of Game of Thrones on March 31 on HBO, and later this summer will star in the Tom Cruise sci-fi epic Oblivion.
Scripted by Melissa Stack – whose I Want to F--- Your Sister script made the 2007 Black List - The Other Woman will begin production in New York in late spring/early summer.
