Thesp join Cook on Lionsgate laffer
Jessica Alba has been set to join Dane Cook in the Lionsgate comedy “Good Luck Chuck,” directed by Mark Helfrich.
Cook plays a serial dater who gets a rep that any woman dating him will rebound into meeting her soulmate. When the man meets his true love, he must find a way to end the streak and keep her. Alba will play that woman.
Josh Stolberg wrote the script, and Mike Karz is producing. Shooting begins next month.
Alba, who’s currently filming the GreeneStreet Films comedy “Bill” opposite Aaron Eckhart, is poised for encores in sequels to “Fantastic Four” and “Sin City.”
