Cameron Diaz is in final negotiations to star in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” for Lionsgate and Phoenix Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows five couples who suffer the many joys of the childbirth process as they await the birth of the first child. Diaz will play a woman in the mold of Jillian Michaels and hosts a weight-loss fitness show.
Kirk Jones directs the Shauna Cross and Heather Hach-scripted adaptation of the non-fiction pregnancy guidebook series. Mike Medavoy, Arnie Messer and David Thwaites are producing.
Shooting kicks off in July once Diaz wraps work on the remake of “Gambit”.
