Revolution Studios has set Steve Zahn and Jeff Garlin to join Eddie Murphy in “Daddy Daycare,” a Steve Carr-directed comedy that will begin shooting on Aug. 5.
Murphy and Garlin play a couple of guys who are laid off from their jobs. Unable to pay to keep their kids in pricey daycare, they open their own guy-run facility. Zahn plays a computer geek who is also laid off, and joins them in the enterprise. They become rivals with another center, with a nasty female proprietor played by Anjelica Huston.
Zahn, who’s repped by CAA and LMRK, is also booked to star in the Billy Ray-directed “Shattered Glass” for Lions Gate, which also stars Hayden Christensen and Chloe Sevigny. He recently wrapped the Dennis Dugan-directed “National Security.” Garlin co-created with Larry David the HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and is David’s co-star. He’s repped by ICM and 3 Arts.
