With Mad Men now a part of televisual history, Christina Hendricks has more time to take film roles. She’s now in negotiations to join high school-set comedy **Fist Fight{ =nofollow}.

The New Line comedy has a script from Van Robichaux and Evan Susser, and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Richie Keen directing. The basic concept finds Day as a mild-mannered English teacher who must man up when a colleague (Cube) at his less-than-top-notch school who thinks he’s trying to get him fired challenges him to a good old-fashioned punch-up. Keen will start the cameras rolling next month in Atlanta.

Hendricks will be an intense drama teacher who has the hots for Cube, so come up with the steam jokes on your own time. She joins a cast that also includes Dean Norris, Jillian Bell and Tracy Morgan, who is returning to acting after a serious road accident. In addition to the new comedy, Hendricks has reunited with her Drive director, Nicolas Winding Refn for The Neon Demon. She was also originally part of Cameron Crowe’s new TV pilot, Roadies, but has since been replaced by Carla Gugino after the character was changed. Still, she won’t be away from small screens for too long, as she’s joined the cast of Hap And Leonard opposite James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams.
