Like Crazy director Drake Doremus has slowly been putting the cast he needs together for his next romance-with-a-twist effort, Zoe. Ewan McGregor and Lea Seydoux are already on to lead, and now he's adding Rashida Jones, Christina Aguilera, Theo James, Miranda Otto and Matthew Gray Gubler to the list.

The story follows two colleagues (McGregor and Seydoux) at a lab who are working on some revolutionary research intended to improve and perfect romantic relationships. And while you might wonder how science could play a role, the results apparently have a profound effect on the scientists.

The Hollywood Reporter doesn't elaborate on what the new arrivals will be doing in the film, but we can predict the usual assortment of colleagues and family/friends/lovers.

Doremus is preparing to shoot the movie next month in Montreal, with a script in hand from Rich Greenburg and Ridley Scott on board to executive produce. No, we do not expect that means the scientific experiment will lead to a terrifying organism that picks the characters off one by one, but there's still time to throw that into the script.
