‘What to Expect When You're Expecting’ Gets Brooklyn Decker

Brooklyn Decker will star in What to Expect When You're Expecting Lionsgate and the producers of the film adaptation of the worldwide bestselling book What to Expect When You're Expecting are thrilled to announce that Brooklyn Decker (Just Go with It, Battleship) has been cast to star with Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez in the film, which is expected to begin shooting mid-Summer 2011, and will be in theaters everywhere on May 11, 2012.

Decker will play Skyler in one of the film's interlocking stories. The perennially perky character, who is married to a much older man, sails through her pregnancy with twins much to the consternation of her peers.

Kirk Jones (Waking Ned Devine, Nanny McPhee) is directing the film, which was acquired from a script by Heather Hach and re-written by Shauna Cross (Whip It!). The film is based on the book by Heidi Murkoff that has been on the New York Times bestseller list for over 500 weeks. Lionsgate has worldwide rights to the film.

Decker is represented by Marilyn Talent for management, Gersh Agency, and attorneys Schreck Rose Dapello Adams & Hurwitz, LLP, who negotiated the deal on her behalf.

Robert Melnik, SVP Business & Legal Affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate. Alli Shearmur, President of Motion Picture Production and Development, and Jim Miller, SVP Motion Picture Production and Development are overseeing the production for Lionsgate.

Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer and David Thwaites are producing, with Douglas Mckay co-producing, through their Phoenix Pictures. Heidi and Erik Murkoff will executive produce along with their literary manager Alan Nevins of Renaissance Literary & Talent.

About the Film
