Rhys Ifans In Talks, Chris Pratt Signs On For Nicholas Stoller's Five-Year Engagement
Set to start up production later this month, Nicholas Stoller's Five-Year Engagement already has a great core of actors signed on including the always likable Jason Segel, Emily Blunt and Alison Brie. Now the production is adding both Anna Farris' husband and The Lizard. Variety reports that Chris Pratt has signed on and Rhys Ifans is currently in talks for a part in the upcoming comedy. The plot centers on Segel and Blunt who play a couple who experience ups and downs over the course of their relationship. The roles to be played by Pratt and Ifans are unspecified.
I must admit that I was kind of confused when I heard that Ifans would be playing the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man as I have always seen him as a comedian first-and-foremost, so it's great to see him return to his natural genre (that's not to say that I don't have high hopes for him in the Marc Webb Spidey movie). This definitely sounds like it will be one to look forward to.
