Megan Fox (Transformers) is joining Friends With Kids, an ensemble comedy from Jennifer Westfeldt. Westfeldt will direct from her own script and produce with her partner Jon Hamm. Mike Nichols and Jake Kasdan are executive producing.
Westfeldt will also star in the film along with Hamm. Adam Scott and Kirsten Wigg are co-starring in the movie about “a pair of thirtysomething best friends who observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know and resolve to bypass that stress by having a child and then date other people.”
Scott and Westfeldt will play the lead couple. Wiig and Hamm will play another. A third couple has not been cast.
Fox will play a girl who Scott begins to date.
The producers are targeting an April release for the movie.
