Diaz, Kutcher hit jackpot in ‘Vegas’

Farino to direct romantic comedy

Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher are rolling the dice together on romantic comedy “What Happens in Vegas” for 20th Century Fox.

Director Julian Farino (“Entourage”) is looking to helm from a script by Dana Fox.

Penn Station’s Dean Georgaris and Mosaic Media’s Michael Aguilar are producing the comedy, which teams Diaz and Kutcher for the first time.

Set in Sin City, story revolves around two people who discover they’ve gotten married following a night of debauchery, with one of them winning a huge jackpot after playing the other’s quarter. Unhappy pair try to undermine each other and get their hands on the money — falling in love along the way.

Deals aren’t yet closed for the two actors, Farino or Fox.

Diaz is in theaters this weekend with “Shrek the Third.”

Word of the “Vegas” project came just as Kutcher was in Gotham at the ABC upfront plugging midseason comedy “Miss/Guided,” which he exec produces.
