Olivia Thirlby (Dredd, The Wackness) has joined the previously-announced Josh Gad, Kevin Hart, Kaley Cuoco and Affion Crockett in The Wedding Ringer. Set up at Miramax and Screen Gems, the comedy will be directed by Jeremy Garelick, who also wrote the screenplay with Jay Lavender.

In the film, Jimmy (Hart) provides best man services for socially challenged guys, who – for whatever reason – have no one close enough to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding. Doug (Gad) a groom-to-be, has found himself in just such a situation, but, to make matters worse, he fabricates the names of not only a best man but nine groomsmen as well. When all else fails, Doug seeks out Jimmy’s services to carry out a charade designed to make Doug look his best, but threatens to destroy everything if it fails.

Thirlby will play Cuoco's character's sister and a romantic interest for Hart's Jimmy.

Miramax’s Adam Fields and Will Packer are producing the film. Screen Gems’ President, Clint Culpepper, will oversee the project on behalf of Screen Gems.
