Justin Bartha, Melanie Laurent, Billy Boyd and Jessica Pare are joining the English and French-language romantic comedy “Shoe at Your Foot” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Bartha will play Jack, an American who wins a vacation for two to Paris but gets dumped by his girlfriend (Pare) just before the trip.
He decides to go by himself, only to find that his luggage has been swapped with the identical bag of French businesswoman Chloe (Laurent).
As Jack is trapped inside his hotel with no money, clothes or French-language skills, Chloe falls in love with his belongings (including his shoes) and, feeling fate has brought them together, sets out on a search to find him.
Boyd (the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy) is attached to play Jack’s Scottish best friend, who persuades him to take the trip alone.
Writer-director Jennifer Devoldere’s first feature has begun a six-week shoot in Paris, to be followed by a week in Montreal.
