24 Frames reports that Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), Olivia Munn (“The Daily Show,” “Attack of the Show”) and Seth Meyers (“Saturday Night Live”) have joined director Douglas McGrath’s I Don’t Know How She Does It, based on the book by Allison Pearson, who also wrote the script.
The trio will star opposite Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan and Kelsey Grammer in The Weinstein Company project that starts shooting in January.
The book is described as follows:
Delightfully smart and heartbreakingly poignant, Allison Pearson’s smash debut novel has exploded onto bestseller lists as “The national anthem for working mothers.” Hedge-fund manager, wife, and mother of two, Kate Reddy manages to juggle nine currencies in five time zones and keep in step with the Teletubbies. But when she finds herself awake at 1:37 a.m. in a panic over the need to produce a homemade pie for her daughter’s school, she has to admit her life has become unrecognizable. With panache, wisdom, and uproarious wit, I Don’t Know How She Does It brilliantly dramatizes the dilemma of every working mom.
