Jessica Alba joins ‘Love Guru’

Actress will co-star with Mike Myers

Paramount Pictures has set Jessica Alba as the female lead opposite Mike Myers in “The Love Guru,” which has been set for a June 20 release.

Myers has added Romany Malco (“Blades of Glory”) and will reteam with Verne Troyer, who played Mini-Me in the three “Austin Powers” films. Marco Schnabel is directing a script by Myers and Graham Gordy.

Myers and Michael De Luca are producing the co-production of Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment. Spyglass partners Roger Birnbaum and Gary Barber exec produce with Donald J. Lee.

In his first new character creation since Austin Powers, Myers plays Pitka, an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. After moving back to the U.S., he attempts to settle a rift between a hockey player (Malco) and his wife, who begins scoring with the star player of a rival team. Alba plays the hockey team owner and Troyer the team coach. Pitka’s job is to check that illicit romance and reunite the couple so the star player can lead his team to the championship.
