Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson survived a zombie apocalypse together in 2009’s Zombieland. Now the two will attempt to overcome something which has, on occasion, been equally as frightening — an American-made romantic comedy. Both Stone and Harrelson have signed onto Friends with Benefits, which will reunite the former with Easy A director Will Gluck.
The pair join Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake (who are playing — get this — two friends who are debating taking their relationship to the next level), as well as Patricia Clarkson, Richard Jenkins, Jenna Elfman, and Andy Samberg. To see who else may be joining the cast, hit the jump.
In addition to the solid cast mentioned before the jump, The Wrap reports that New York Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez is in negotiations to make his silver-screen debut in the film as a guy who is too wealthy and talented for his own good (note: that won’t be his character… probably). To add to his acting resume, Rodriguez is also lending his voice to the upcoming animated family film Henry and Me.
Production on Friends with Benefits is scheduled to begin later this month around the New York area with a 2011 release pending.
