In what is likely to be the final bit of casting, New Year’s Eve has added Chris “Ludacris” Bridges to the ensemble film, says The Hollywood Reporter. The article states that Bridges will play an NYPD officer.
A thematic follow-up to the studio’s Valentine’s Day, the movie will be set in New York and follows intertwining stories of characters trying to navigate their way through romance on New Year’s Eve.
The enormous cast also includes Katherine Heigl (who initially replaced Berry), Ashton Kutcher, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Sienna Miller, Seth Meyers, Jon Bon Jovi, Til Schweiger, Josh Duhamel, Halle Berry, Carla Gugino and Alyssa Milano.
Production is currently underway in New York City and, as such, the cast, pictured below, should be pretty close to finalized.
