James Marsden has signed on to star opposite Elizabeth Banks in the comedy Walk of Shame.  The story follows “a high-strung news anchor (Banks) who, after a wild night out, finds herself locked out on the street with no phone, money, ID or car, and embarks on a series of misadventures as she finds her way to the most important job interview of her life.”  Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds) wrote and will direct.  Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, and Sidney Kimmel are producing.  Banks and Marsden ought to be a nice comedic pairing, so while the logline doesn’t hook me, the casting does.

Hit the jump for details on Gregg Sulkin‘s starring role in 1990.

In 1990, Sulkin plays a high school senior who just transferred schools and becomes best friends with a girl named Kali: “Though both harbor romantic feelings for one another, their timing never seems to be quite right.”  Jon E. Cohen will direct from a script he co-wrote with Nicola Sammeroff.  Sammeroof and Jason Priestley are producing.  Filming is scheduled to begin next summer in Ontario.  I balked when Variety referred to 1990 as an “indie period pic,” but they’re right.  I guess this is the night when my lifetime crosses over into period territory.

I have not seen any of Sulkin’s work, but he’s on the right career path for a breakout.  The actor is currently straddling teen series (Wizards of Waverly Place, Pretty Little Liars) and indie projects (this, the Great Gatsby-inspired Affluenza, Isabel Coixet’s Panda Eyes).
