De Niro, Kutcher confirmed to star in Marshall pic

Jessica Biel’s in final negotations to join New Line’s ensemble comedy “New Year’s Eve.”

Robert De Niro and Ashton Kutcher have signed and Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin are in talks for the pic, to be directed by Garry Marshall

Biel and Kutcher were in Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day,” but the characters from that New Line pic won’t be in “New Year’s Eve” — which will be set in New York and follow intertwining stories of characters trying to navigate their way through romance on New Year’s Eve.

Marshall is expected to return to direct, as are producers Mike Karz and Wayne Rice, and screenwriter Katherine Fugate. New Line has given “New Year’s Eve” a Dec. 9, 2011, release date.

Biel was recently seen in “The A-Team” and “Easy Virtue.”
