Mortimer to bolster ‘Barry’

Laffer based on Hollon's novel 'Life'

Emily Mortimer has been cast opposite Luke Wilson in indie comedy “Barry Munday” from Prospect Pictures.

Colin Hanks (“King Kong”), Jennifer Coolidge (“Legally Blonde”) and Billy Dee Williams, who recently wrapped shooting on “Hood of Horror,” also are set to star.

“Barry Munday,” based on Frank Turner Hollon’s novel “Life Is a Strange Place,” is about an incorrigible womanizer who wakes up sans his family jewels after being attacked with a trumpet by an irate father.

Chris D’Arienzo is writing and directing.

Producers are Prospect’s Matthew Weaver, Carl Levin and Marcos Siega. Rosanne Korenberg is exec producing. Film is being privately financed.

Traction Media is handling worldwide rights.

Mortimer, who stars in Woody Allen’s latest film, “Match Point,” also will star opposite Ryan Reynolds in Warner Independent Pictures’ romantic comedy “Chaos Theory.”
