Casting Bits and a Director Pick

ON

A couple of quick casting bits were announced today as Kevin James has been tapped to star in Disney’s Field Trip, a comedy in which James will play a substitute teacher who manages an unruly sixth grade class on its annual field trip.

Next up is Jeff Daniels joining the Robin Williams flick RV for director Barry Sonnenfeld. The comedy follows a man (Williams) and his dysfunctional family who rent an RV and head for the Rockies, ending up in a campground community. Daniels plays an annoyingly helpful man who is considered the patron saint of the RV world. His character also is the husband of Kristin Chenoweth’s stay-at-home businesswoman, who sells products out of her trailer.

Finally James Foley has been tapped as the director for the psychological thriller Perfect Stranger starring Halle Berry. The film tells the story of a woman (Berry) who gets caught up in the world of obsessive love and death online when she goes undercover to investigate a friend’s murder. Perfect Stranger is expected to go into production this winter.
