Lucy Punch joins Bad Teacher

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucy Punch has been cast opposite Cameron Diaz in the black comedy Bad Teacher, which Jake Kasdan is directing for Columbia.

Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg wrote the original screenplay about Elizabeth Halsey (Diaz), a foul-mouthed, conniving seventh-grade teacher who pursues a colleague after being dumped by her sugar daddy. The new romantic interest brings her into conflict with Amy Squirrel (Punch), the school’s model teacher.

Jimmy Miller is producing the feature, which starts filming next month in Los Angeles.
