Casting News: Bennett, Scott, Wilson

Divorce Invitation
Jonathan Bennett, Lainie Kazan, Elliott Gould, Richard Kind, Ian Alda, Keith Robinson, Andrea Bowen, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, and Nadia Bjorlinto have joined the cast of the romantic comedy “Divorce Invitation”.

Indian director S.V. Krishna Reddy helms the story of a happily married man who runs into his high school sweetheart and soul mate. One catch – he signed an iron-clad pre-nup and his wife won’t let him get a divorce. Shooting will commence this month in Los Angeles.

Adam Scott will play the leading role in Stuart Zicherman’s indie comedy “A.C.O.D.” which will begin shooting in March.

The Ben Karlin scripted project has Scott playing a grown man still dealing with the ramifications of his parents’ divorce who must do what he can to bring the family together when his younger brother decides to get married. [Source: Deadline]
