Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz’s Sony comedy Sex Tape, about a couple who take a night off from their kids to make a sex tape which they end up losing, is coming together with their Bad Teacher director Jake Kasdan at the helm. Now word comes from The Wrap that Kasdan has brought on board Jack Black, star of his earlier movie Orange County, to play the CEO of a major porn company that gets his hands on their tape.
Earlier this week, “Children’s Hospital” star and executive producer Rob Corddry also came on board as a friend of the couple who helps them to find the tape.
Based on a screenplay from Kate Angelo with Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch producing under their Escape Artists banner, the comedy is expected to start production in the fall to allow Diaz to take on the role of Miss Hanigan in Sony’s Annie remake.
Segel and Black previously appeared together in Gulliver’s Travels, and Black is coming off the Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations he received for his role in Richard Linklater’s Bernie.
