Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser are the latest actors to sign on to the Justin Long-penned romantic comedy A Case of You, joining a cast that includes Long himself, his co-writer Keir O'Donnell, Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Dinklage and Busy Philipps. The movie centers on a young writer who looks for love online, and uses his "gift for fiction"--as David Mamet would say--to enhance his dating site profile. Of course, when it comes time to meet the girl he's managed to impress with lies, he must personify his false online profile in his real life. Trouble ensues.
Variety, which has revealed this latest casting update, makes no mention of what roles Miller and Fraser are slated to play, but since Long and Wood were the first cast members to be announced, it's likely they'll play the love-struck leads and Fraser and Miller will have to fit into the cast elsewhere. A Case of You is currently shooting in New York, which means Miller, who recently revealed her baby bump at fashion week, will likely be playing a pregnant woman. But beyond that, the parts they'll play remain a mystery.
As an actor, Long has had a varied career, bouncing from studio rom-coms like He's Just Not That Into You to genre offerings like Drag Me to Hell to kid flicks like Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, yet he hasn't garnered much notice of late. Perhaps this is why he's decided to try his hand at writing and producing with A Case of You, as a way to better direct his career. His younger brother Christian, who contributed to the script, will produce alongside Long. Kat Coiro (L!fe Happens) is helming the feature which is due out next year.
