Col firms ‘Holiday’ plans

Law set opposite Diaz in Meyers laffer

Jude Law has been set to play the male lead in “Holiday,” the romantic comedy writer-director Nancy Meyers will shoot for Columbia Pictures early next year.

Law will play the love interest opposite Cameron Diaz, a woman on the rebound who vacations in London and strikes up a friendship with a British woman (Kate Winslet) who has also been dumped. Jack Black rounds out the quartet.

Pic is shooting in London and Los Angeles. Col exec veep Amy Baer is overseeing the pic, and Meyers is producing through the overall deal she signed at the studio when she wrote and directed “Something’s Gotta Give.”

This is Law’s first starring role since he completed a reteam with “Cold Mountain” director Anthony Minghella in the Weinstein Co. drama “Breaking and Entering.” Law also starred opposite Sean Penn and Winslet in the Steve Zaillian-directed “All the King’s Men,” which will be distributed in late 2006.
