According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rob Corddry and Lake Bell are in final negotiations to star opposite Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher in the Tom Vaughn-helmed comedy What Happens in Vegas… for 20th Century Fox.
Written by Dana Fox, the story is set in motion following a night of debauchery in Vegas when two strangers (Diaz, Kutcher) discover they have gotten married and one of them wins a huge jackpot with the other’s quarter. In trying to determine the rightful beneficiary of the winnings, the duo embarks on a series of plots to undermine the other, falling in love along the way.
Corddry is set to play Hater, an attorney and the best friend of Kutcher’s character who richly deserves his nickname. In fact, he’s a world-class misanthrope with an acerbic edge. Bell will play the best friend of Diaz’s character.
