Samberg With Faris In What's Your Number
And Zachary Quinto's in talks
Andy Samberg has signed on to join Anna Faris and Chris Evans in What's Your Number?, a new R-rated relationships comedy that also has Zachary Quinto in talks to join the cast. This will be a reunion of sorts for Samberg and Faris, both of whom voiced characters in the excellent Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but marks their first live-action collaboration. Oh, and you may now spend a quick moment geeking out at the prospect of having Spock and Captain America in the same film; then we'll continue.
Faris will play a woman who starts to panic, on sleeping with her 20th man, that she's had too many relationships and missed Mr Right along the way. Cue soul-searching, revisiting old boyfriends and no doubt many comedy escapades. Evans will play her womanising next-door neighbour (who we're guessing she'll end up with because, well, dreamy) with Samberg and possibly Quinto as ex-boyfriends. And yes, with shooting due to begin in May this is in no danger of colliding with either Captain America or the long-mooted Star Trek 2.
Mark Mylod's taking the directors chair after a long career in TV (everything from The Fast Show to Cold Feet to Entourage, so he knows funny) and it's all based on Karyn Bosnak's book 20 Times A Lady.
