Ashley Judd to star in ‘Flypaper’

Thesp to join Patrick Dempsey in comedy

Ashley Judd will star opposite Patrick Dempsey in indie bank heist comedy “Flypaper,” replacing Liv Tyler.

It’s Judd’s first role after taking a year off to get her graduate degree at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and graduating less than a month ago. Filming starts in Baton Rouge next week.

Tim Blake Nelson is also starring as a bank robber in “Flypaper,” produced by Peter Safran, Mark Damon and Dempsey.

Pic is directed by Rob Minkoff from a script by “The Hangover” team of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore in the tale of a bank robbed by two groups of crooks at the same time. However, they both come under attack by a secret enemy (Dempsey), to save the bank teller whom he loves.

Judd last appeared opposite Dwayne Johnson in Fox’s “Tooth Fairy.”

She’s repped by WME.
