LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Cameron Diaz is in negotiations to star in “Swingles,” a romantic comedy that puts a 21st-century spin on a “When Harry Met Sally ...”-type setup.
“Swingles” focuses on a man and woman whose respective best friends meet and fall in love, leaving them without a wingman/woman for the first time in their adult lives. Despite their antagonism, the two remaining singles decide to join forces to help each other find romantic partners.
The search for a suitable onscreen mate for Diaz’s character is ongoing.
The Paramount Pictures project was written by Duncan Birmingham, with additional work by Jeff Roda.
Diaz starred opposite Ashton Kutcher in the 2008 comedy “What Happens in Vegas.” Her upcoming films include “Shrek Goes Fourth,” the horror thriller “The Box” and the drama “My Sister’s Keeper.”
