Duo set for ‘Rome’

Heder, Shepard join Bell in Disney feature

Jon Heder and Dax Shepard have been set to star with Kristen Bell in “When in Rome,” which David Diamond and David Weissman wrote. Mark Steven Johnson will direct the feature for Disney.

Bell (“Heroes”) plays Beth, a successful but hopelessly single Gotham curator at the Guggenehim. When her younger sister impulsively marries in Rome, Beth flies out for the wedding and, after picking up coins from a reputed “fountain of love,” finds an overabundance of suitors waiting for her back home.

Heder plays a street magician who uses his talents to try to get the girl. Shepard plays a self-absorbed suitor who falls under the spell and chases the girl.

Gary Foster, Andrew Panay and Rikki Bestall will produce, and shooting begins shortly in New York and Rome.

Heder most recently starred in “Blades of Glory” and “Mama’s Boy,” while Shepard next stars in the Universal comedy “Baby Mama” and Disney’s “Old Dogs.”
