sp; The Hollywood ReporterThe Hollywood Reporter indicates that whilst production started on "Prime" yesterday, casting is still continuing. Uma Thurman has taken over the leading role following Sandra Bullock's departure from the project.

Now, Annie Parisse has joined the cast to play Katherine, the best buddy of Thurman's character. Parisse most recently shot "Monster-in-Law" for New Line Cinema and will be seen in the Walt Disney Co.'s "National Treasure" with Nicolas Cage.

Thurman plays a woman who falls in love with the son (Bryan Greenberg) of her therapist (Meryl Streep). Ben Younger is directing from his own script, with Universal Pictures distributing. Producer Suzanne Todd says "We are thrilled to have it all up and running".
