Earlier today, I received a call from Elisha Cuthbert to discuss her upcoming movie Captivity -- I'll be posting that interview as soon as I have time to sit down and type it out -- but since the news cycle doesn't sleep, I thought I'd go ahead and give you the casting news that she dropped to me during the course of our talk. She's just signed for a family comedy called The Six Wives of Henry Lefay, and she begins shooting in mid-August. Rumors have flown for a while that this would be Tim Allen's next project, and Cuthbert confirmed his involvement to me in addition to her own.
"I'm gonna go off and do a movie with Tim Allen," she said. "It's a comedy and it's got a huge cast. Coming off of Captivity, where it's pretty much only me in the film -- with Sassy Girl, I'm playing opposite Jesse Bradford -- I sort of wanted to find an ensemble film, and this one happened to come my way. It's called The Six Wives of Henry LeFay and it's a really fun family film about a girl who has to organize her father's funeral in the midst of dealing with six ex-wives. It's so funny. It's so much fun, and it's gonna be great to work with six different actresses. It's gonna be a great time, so I'm looking forward to that." There's not much more information about Six Wives that's been made public yet, but now that the cat is out of the bag, expect to hear a lot of details soon.
