British novels are often a rich source for Hollywood films, though Allison Pearson’s I Don’t Know How She Does It is more Bridget Jones than Brideshead Revisited. But then, that’s exactly the appeal of the tome, which has been adapted into a film for Sarah Jessica Parker to appear in. Now Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks has signed on, along with Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers and Attack of the Show’s Olivia Munn.

Parker will play the lead, Kate Reddy, a woman who is faced with a juggling act every day – trying to balance her high-powered career with being a mother to two small kids.

Hendricks, last seen in Life as We Know It, has agreed to play one of her best friends and part of her supporting system. Munn, meanwhile, who had a small role in Iron Man 2, is on as a colleague at Reedy’s work. There’s no info yet on who Meyers will appear as.

They’re joining a cast that already includes Kelsey Grammer and Pierce Brosnan. Infamous director Doug McGrath is already in pre-production on the film, which will shoot next month.
