James Marsden is set to star in Summit Entertainment and Endgame Entertainment’s “Alibi” opposite Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and Steve Coogan.
Shooting starts in July in Los Angeles on the project, with Kurt Mattila and Matt Checkowski making their directorial debuts. The project centers on a guy (Coogan) who runs an alibi service for men and women who cheat on their spouses. One specific client (Marsden) gets into a situation over his head, and Coogan’s character must help him fix it. In the process, he relies on and falls for the woman (Romijn-Stamos).
Summit topper Patrick Wachsberger and president of production Erik Feig are producing along with Endgame’s Jim Stern. Summit’s Bob Hayward and David Garrett also will serve in a producing capacity. Summit and Endgame are financing.
Marsden next stars in “The Notebook” for New Line Cinema. He recently finished filming the Merchant Ivory production “Heights,” opposite Glenn Close and Elizabeth Banks. He is repped by Endeavor.
