Three sisters and one love have been cast for My Idiot Brother. Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer will play the siblings of Paul Rudd's character while Rashida Jones will be the girlfriend of Deschanel's bisexual character. Banks is described as a career-driven journalist on the verge of landing her big break at a fashion magazine, Mortimer is a stay-at-home mom whose marriage is crumbling around her and Deschanel is too flakey to realize that she has a caring partner.

Paul Rudd has signed on to star in My Idiot Brother, a new comedy scheduled to start filming next month in New York. Rudd will play the son of a family of three sisters and their mother, with the latter woman's way of living causing trouble for her children. Jesse Peretz (The Chateau) is directing.
"Everyone on Earth who has a brother has an idiot brother," commented one of the movie's producers, Anthony Bregman. "I come from a family of three brothers, so I know that better than anyone. And what could beat the prospect of working with Jesse and Paul, who are like brothers to each other to bring that message out into the world?"- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)
