Kristen Bell will play the title role in the romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, during her eight week hiatus from “Veronica Mars,” reports Production Weekly.
Jason Segel (“How I Met Your Mother”) wrote the script and will co-star with Bell, with Nick Stoller making his directing debut.
After a devastating break-up with his girlfriend TV sitcom star Sarah Marshall (Bell), a heartbroken and depressed Peter (Segel) heads to Hawaii for a little vacation to try his best to forget every detail of his relationship with Sarah. But love laughs at Peter, because Sarah is vacationing in the same exclusive resort as Peter, along with her new boyfriend.
The project will start filming mid-April on location at the Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, Hawaii and Los Angeles.
Bell is also attached to co-star with William H. Macy in Renji Philip’s indie drama Antique. The story follows the intersecting lives of eight residents in Echo Park, as they all search for the strength to break free from the pains of their past.
