Thesp join Cook on Lionsgate laffer

Jessica Alba has been set to join Dane Cook in the Lionsgate comedy “Good Luck Chuck,” directed by Mark Helfrich.

Cook plays a serial dater who gets a rep that any woman dating him will rebound into meeting her soulmate. When the man meets his true love, he must find a way to end the streak and keep her. Alba will play that woman.

Josh Stolberg wrote the script, and Mike Karz is producing. Shooting begins next month.
