THR is reporting The comedy project, which was to have starred Leslie Mann and be produced by Judd Apatow for Paramount but languished after the duo left, is back on, this time with Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell.
STX Entertainment has stepped up to pick up the project, which is now untitled, with Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers behind The Hangover, remaining on board to direct. The duo also penned the script.
The story centers on an overachieving mother with a seemingly perfect life whose stress lines are one bad day from cracking. Fed up, she joins two other overstressed mothers, leading them on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities, which includes going on a wild un-mom-like binge of freedom, fun and self-indulgence. The course of action lands them on a collision course with the PTA Queen Bee and her blindly devoted clique of "perfect" moms.
STX hopes the strong female roles combined with a timely subject will be a win.
"Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are masters at creating relatable characters that audiences instantly embrace, and then putting them in hilarious real-life situations for great comedic results," said STX’s president and CCO Oren Aviv. "This film provides the rare opportunity for a half-dozen strong female lead roles, and we are thrilled to have assembled an exceptional cast led by Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell. We can’t wait to start production and be part of the magic this team will bring to the screen."
