Erik told us about a month ago about Definitely, Maybe, a movie that, sadly, is not the story of feuding brothers with bushy eyebrows and a little rock band on the side. Instead, it's a romantic comedy about "a soon-to-be-divorced political consultant who has to answer some hard questions from his 11-year-old daughter as he explains his promiscuous past." When the film was announced, much of the cast was already in place, including Ryan Reynolds (who, despite Erik's mean remarks, will completely rock this grown-up part -- seriously) as the political consultant and Derek Luke and Isla Fisher in unspecified supporting roles.

Today, reports indicated that a few more major openings are close to being filled -- and by names that will make this movie very popular among men, despite its chick-flick potential: Elizabeth Banks and Rachel Weisz are in negotiations to join the cast. According to this morning's Hollywood Reporter, Banks will play the college girlfriend of Reynolds' character, while Weisz is in talks to play the girl who replaces Banks in the consultant's heart. At this point, though, does it even matter? I'm guessing the names Weisz, Banks and Fisher will be more than enough to make this a must-see for a large segment of the population.
