Entertainment Weekly reports that Chris Pine (Star Trek) is in talks to join Reese Witherspoon in the McG-directed comedy This Means War.
The 20th Century Fox project is the story of two best friends, inseparable since childhood, who fall in love with the same woman (Witherspoon). The two men’s bond disintegrates and their ensuing battle escalates to mammoth proportions, with New York City demolished in their wake.
The most recent draft of the script is by Timothy Dowling (Role Models). The studio hopes to start filming in July, but still has to find the second male lead.
