We’ve got a couple of director-related news stories to share this afternoon. First up, Variety reports that Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, Alpha Dog) has settled on 20th Century Fox’s The Other Woman as his next project. The director intended to next helm the gritty actioner Cali, but star Kristen Stewart abruptly dropped out following Huntsman-gate her personal drama late last summer. The Other Woman centers on a woman (surprise!) who, “after realizing she is not her boyfriend’s primary lover, teams up with the man’s wife to plot a mutual revenge.”
Cameron Diaz was previously rumored to star with Kristen Wiig in the mix for the other lead role, but those rumors were apparently premature as neither actress is attached at this time. The studio wants to move quickly on this one, and they hope to have the leads locked up within the next week. Melissa Stack is writing the screenplay. Hit the jump for news concerning a director change on The Man in the Rockefeller Suit.
