Zach Braff gets behind ‘Swingles’

Actor to direct and star in Paramount comedy

Zach Braff is in negotiations to direct, rewrite and co-star in the comedy “Swingles” for Paramount Pictures.

Cameron Diaz has already signed on to star.

Braff will play a supporting role. The male lead is still being cast.

Story, which is based on a Duncan Birmingham spec, centers on a bachelor who is dumped by his wingman and teams up with a sharp-tongued woman he can’t stand in order to meet singles. Jeff Roda penned a draft as well.

Kevin Misher, whose credits include the upcoming Michael Mann-helmed “Public Enemies,” is producing.

Project will mark Braff’s second feature helming effort; he also directed the 2004 indie “Garden State.”

Braff just inked a deal for his final six episodes of ABC laffer “Scrubs.”
