Selma Blair, John Leguizamo and Sam Elliott have joined the cast of “The Alibi,” a co-production of Summit Entertainment and Endgame Entertainment. Directed by first-time helmers Kurt Matilla and Matt Checkowski, pic begins principal photography this week.

Steve Coogan and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos star in the pic, which concerns a guy who creates alibis for cheating spouses. Circumstances force him to confront his own criminal past to get a client out of a murder charge.

James Brolin, James Marsden and Jaime King fill out the cast.

Summit’s Patrick Wachsberger and Erik Feig are producing, along with Summit exec producers Bob Hayward, David Garrett and Endgame’s Jim Stern.

International distribution rights to the film were sold at the Cannes Film Festival. Domestic rights will be sold in the near future.

Pic is part of Summit’s ramped up push into film production; the company’s core business is film sales.

Other upcoming Summit films are “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and the psychological thriller “Me Again.”
