Krasinski, Rudolph and Hines in Mendes’ Comedy


John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph will star in Sam Mendes’ untitled relationship comedy for Focus Features. Variety says Cheryl Hines has signed on to co-star.

The film follows an expectant couple (Krasinski, Rudolph) as they travel the country in search of a place to put down roots and raise a family.

Author Dave Eggers wrote the screenplay with his wife, editor-novelist Vendela Vida.

Shooting is scheduled to start in April in Connecticut.

Ed Saxon is producing alongside Big Beach’s Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf.
