The film follows twin brothers who are separated at a young age and go on to live drastically different lives. They both fall in love with the same woman, but despite that rivalry, reunite in an effort to save the Rocket Cola company.
It doesn't sound like Braff would play the two brothers, but is currently looking to cast the two male leads.
Pugh is currently attached to play the female lead, but she’s also in talks to join Marvel’s "Black Widow" movie, which might put her out of the running.
"Scrubs" star Braff made his directorial debut with "Garden State," then went on to direct "Wish I Was Here" and the heist movie "Going in Style."
Pugh earned raves for her title role in 2016's "Lady Macbeth." She followed that up with "Outlaw King" and the AMC series "The Little Drummer Girl." Her film "Fighting With my Family" is in theaters now.
She next stars in "Midsommar" from "Hereditary" director Ari Aster and Greta Gerwig‘s adaptation of "Little Women."
