Uma Thurman has company on “The Accidental Husband,” the Yari Film Group-produced romantic comedy that begins shooting today in New York. Colin Firth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Sam Shepard, Isabella Rossellini, Lindsay Sloane and Justina Machado have joined the cast.
Griffin Dunne directs from a script penned by Bonnie Sikowitz, Mimi Hare and Clare Naylor, along with Kristen Buckley and Brian Regan.
Thurman plays a love doctor who hosts a local radio show about relationships. When a listener (Machado) takes her advice and dumps her boyfriend, only to regret it, she decides to wreak havoc on the doc’s personal life.
Yari will produce with Team Todd’s Jennifer and Suzanne Todd, Blum House’s Jason Blum and Thurman.
Dunne most recently directed “Fierce People,” due out in February.
