Rashida Jones (“”The Office””) has landed the female lead in DreamWorks’ comedy “I Love You, Man” and a co-starring role in Gold Circle Films’ “Chilled in Miami” reports Variety.
John Hamburg directs “I Love You” from a script he wrote about a man about to get married (Paul Rudd) who seeks out a stranger to be his best man for the wedding.
Jones will play the fiancee whilst Jason Segal also stars. Shooting is scheduled to begin in early April.
“Chilled” centers on a Miami businesswoman (Renee Zellweger) who is transferred to rural Minnesota, and while she is there she re-evaluates her big-city values.
Jones will play the best friend to Zellweger’s character, whilst Harry Connick Jr. will play the male romantic lead.
