Zach Braff to Direct and Star in Swingles


Zach Braff (“Scrubs,” Garden State) is in negotiations to direct, rewrite and co-star in the comedy Swingles for Paramount Pictures, reports Variety.

Cameron Diaz has already signed on to star.

The story, which is based on a Duncan Birmingham spec script, centers on a bachelor who is dumped by his wingman and teams up with a sharp-tongued woman he can’t stand in order to meet singles. Jeff Roda wrote a draft as well.
