Cameron Diaz is looking to tackle another comedy. The actress is now attached to star in Fox’s revenge comedy The Other Woman, which is apparently in the vein of a younger-skewing The First Wives Club. The story centers on a woman who finds out she’s “the other woman” in a love triangle and meets up with the wife in order to conspire against the husband. The Wrap reports that Kristen Wiig is under consideration for a role in the film, presumably that of the man’s wife. No director is currently attached, but the pic has a script by Black List scribe Melissa Stack and the pairing of Diaz and Wiig could make for some fine comedy.
Diaz most recently filmed a role in director Ridley Scott’s drama The Counselor and will be seen opposite Colin Firth in the comedy caper remake Gambit in early 2013. She’s next set to star in the action-comedy Agent: Century 21 alongside Benicio Del Toro.
