Vegas is Happening for Corddry and Bell


Rob Corddry and Lake Bell are in final talks to star opposite Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher in the Tom Vaughn-directed comedy What Happens in Vegas for 20th Century Fox.

Written by Dana Fox, the story is set in motion following a night of debauchery in Vegas when two strangers (Diaz, Kutcher) discover they have gotten married and one of them wins a huge jackpot with the other’s quarter. In trying to determine the rightful beneficiary of the winnings, the duo embarks on a series of plots to undermine the other, falling in love along the way.

Corddry is set to play Hater, an attorney and the best friend of Kutcher’s character who richly deserves his nickname. In fact, he’s a world-class misanthrope with an acerbic edge. Bell will play the best friend of Diaz’s character.

Dean Georgaris is producing through his Penn Station banner alongside Mosaic’s Michael Aguilar.
