Former “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Corddry and “Surface” star Lake Bell are in final negotiations to star alongside Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher in the Tom Vaughn-helmed comedy “What Happens in Vegas … ” for 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.
Penned by Dana Fox, the story is set in motion following a night of debauchery in Vegas when two strangers (Diaz, Kutcher) discover they have gotten married and one of them wins a huge jackpot with the other’s quarter.
In trying to determine the rightful beneficiary of the winnings, the duo embarks on a series of plots to undermine the other, falling in love along the way.
Corddry is set to play Hater, the best friend of Kutcher’s character and an attorney best described as a world-class misanthrope with an acerbic edge. Bell will play the best friend of Diaz’s character.
