As if there hadn’t been enough changes already behind and in front of the camera, relationship comedy drama Miss You Already is going through another shift as it prepares to kick off filming. Drew Barrymore has jumped aboard to replace Rachel Weisz.

That’s just the latest alteration: Weisz had been hired to replace Jennifer Aniston, who was the original pick to star alongside Toni Collette. Now the hopefully-final line-up will see Barrymore, Collette, Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine and Jacqueline Bisset star in the story of two best friends.

The pair – Barrymore and Collette – have been inseparable for years, but hit a difficult patch when Barrymore struggles to have a child and Collette discovers she has breast cancer. Considine and Cooper will play their husbands, while Bisset is aboard as Collette’s mother.

Catherine Hardwicke starts the cameras rolling this week, taking over from Paul Andrew Williams, who had originally been attached to direct Morwenna Banks’ script.

Miss You Already explores the ups and down of an intense friendship,” Hardwicke says in a statement carried by Variety. “With our fearless actors, we’re taking this very personal story on a wild ride.”

Shooting will take place in London and on the Yorkshire Moors for the next few weeks.
