"The Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco is in talks to join Kevin Hart and Josh Gad in the untitled comedy that Jeremy Garelick will direct for Screen Gems and Miramax, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
Hart stars as Jimmy, who provides best man services for socially-challenged grooms that have no close friends willing to stand by them on their wedding day.
Gad will play Doug, a groom-to-be who fabricates not just his best man, but his nine groomsmen as well. Together they must carry out a charade that is designed to make Doug look his best but threatens to destroy everything if it fails.
Cuoco is making a deal to play Gad's self-centered fiancee who cares more about having the perfect wedding than whether he is actually happy or not.
Project, which is currently untitled, was formerly known as "Best Man Inc." when it was developed at Miramax. Garelick wrote the script with Jay Lavender. They previously collaborated on the Vince Vaughn-Jennifer Aniston comedy "The Break-Up."
Will Packer ("Think Like a Man") is producing with Miramax's Adam Fields. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper is overseeing the project on behalf of the studio.
Cuoco, who plays Penny on the hit CBS series "The Big Bang Theory," recently wrapped the indie comedy "Authors Anonymous," which she also executive produced. She starred alongside James Marsden in Universal's "Hop" and co-starred in Matt Oates' little-seen indie gem "Wasted" with Kip Pardue, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Josh Cooke.
She's represented by SDB Partners, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Hansen, Jacobson.
