Cheryl Hines has joined the cast of romantic laffer “Henry Poole Was Here,” toplining Luke Wilson, for Lakeshore Entertainment.

Mark Pellington is directing the film from a script by Albert Torres. Adriana Barraza and Radha Mitchell also star.

Story revolves around a man who retreats into a life of debauchery, feasting on liquor and fast food, after learning he has only six weeks to live. But his plans go awry thanks to his oddball neighbors.
