Zach Braff To Star In Swingles

And direct and re-write Diaz rom-com

Zach Braff's been absent from our movie screens for a while now, concentrating on Scrubs instead. But now that he's finishing his turn on that hospital comedy he's headed back to Hollywood, signing on to direct, re-write and star in the comedy Swingles, with Cameron Diaz.

The film centres on a single guy (Braff) who is dumped by his wingman and instead teams up with a sharp-tongued woman (Diaz) in order to meet women. The two don't get along - but we're guessing by the end of the film they've found a connection.

We'd like to think that the results will, like the title, be a cross between Singles and Swingers, but we're slightly concerned that it might mean that Braff and Diaz end up going to rather icky swingers clubs, so fingers crossed we're wrong about that.

The script was originally written by Duncan Birmingham and re-written by Jeff Roda. It'll be Braff's first full-feature directing job since Garden State, but follows a segment he made for New York, I Love You, which is due out later this year.
