According to THR, Megan will be joining Jon Hamm, Adam Scott, Jennifer Westfeldt and Kristen Wiig in the upcoming rom-com “Friends With Kids.” The project follows a pair of thirtysomething best friends who come up with a way to bypass the stress of having kids by having a child with each other, and then proceed to date other people. Megan will play a girl who Adam dates after he and Jennifer have a child.
Jon and Kristen will play a second couple in the film, and a third couple has yet to be cast. It is unclear if these couples will follow a similar route as Adam and Jennifer’s friends-with-kids relationship, or if they will be couples who have kids and are dealing with the subsequent drama, but we’re hoping for the power couple of Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig that it’s the latter.
“It’s a very literate script and when Jen met with her, she thought Megan was spot on. When [Megan] picks the right part, she has tremendous value,” Cinetic Media’s John Sloss, who is handling sales, told THR.
Megan also has the upcoming flick “Passion Play,” which recently made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and was purchased by Image Entertainment. And, of course, she recently got hitched to her longtime boyfriend Brian Austin Green, so it looks like things are turning in Megan’s favor again.
