Stephanie Szostak (“The Devil Wears Prada”) has scored the female lead role in the high profile comedy “Dinner for Schmucks” at Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
The remake of a French comedy, the story follows the most pathetic guy ever to be invited to another man’s weekly dinner party.
Szostak will play Julie, the girlfriend of Paul Rudd’s character. Steve Carell, Zach Galifianakis and Lucy Punch also star.
Jay Roach (“Austin Powers,” “Meet the Parents”) helms the project and filming kicks off this Fall for release next July.
