Collette Joins Sam Mendes’ Next

Toni Collette will star alongside John Krasinski, Cheryl Hines and Maya Rudolph in Sam Mendes’ upcoming relationship comedy for Focus Features says The Hollywood Reporter.

Collette will play a college professor and close family friend of a couple (Krasinski and Rudolph) canvasing the country to find the best place to raise their unborn child.

She’s convinced that their kid will end up dysfunctional no matter where it’s raised.

Dave Eggers wrote the script with his wife, novelist Vendela Vida. Shooting begins this month in Connecticut.
