Ashley Judd is Joining Flypaper


Ashley Judd will star in bank heist comedy Flypaper opposite Patrick Dempsey. Liv Tyler was previously attached to the role.

Variety says the film is “Judd’s first role after taking a year off to get her graduate degree at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and graduating less than a month ago.”

In the movie, a bank is robbed by two different groups of crooks at the same time. However, they both come under attack by a secret enemy (Dempsey), to save the bank teller whom he loves.

Filming starts in Baton Rouge next week. Tim Blake Nelson’s also starring as a bank robber.

Rob Minkoff will direct from a script by The Hangover team of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Peter Safran, Mark Damon and Dempsey are producing.
