Jeff Bridges joins ‘Lose’ cast

Danny Huston, Gillian Anderson also sign on

Jeff Bridges has joined the cast of Bob Weide’s comedy “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” in the key role of Clayton Harding, a Gotham magazine editor closely modeled on Vanity Fair’s Graydon Carter.

Danny Huston and Gillian Anderson have also been signed up for the movie, which stars Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst.

“How to Lose Friends,” which starts shooting June 4, is based on Brit journalist Toby Young’s memoir of his misadventures in New York as a contributing editor for Vanity Fair.

Young is merciless in his description of his own hapless attempts ingratiate himself with celebs, models and power players, but is equally caustic in his depiction of Carter’s grandiose pretensions and Vanity Fair’s self-important culture. The thinly fictionalized movie adaptation is penned by Peter Straughan.

Producers are Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen of Number 9 Films.

Intandem is handling international sales, with the project co-financed by Film4.
