Jeff Bridges, Gillian Anderson and Danny Huston have joined the cast of “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” alongside Kirsten Dunst (“Spider-Man”) and Simon Pegg (“Hot Fuzz”).
Playing like a male version of “The Devil Wears Prada,” the story is based on Brit journalist Toby Young’s memoir of his misadventures in New York as a contributing editor for Vanity Fair.
Young describes his own hopeless attempts to ingratiate himself with celebs and power players, but also scathingly depicts editor Graydon Carter’s grandiose claims and the magazine’s snobbish attitude.
Bridges will play Carter, Anderson a New York PR spin doctor, Peter Straughan penned the script adaptation.
Shooting begins June 4th in London and New York City under the helm of Robert B. Weide.
