According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alec Baldwin has been cast as Sarah Michelle Gellar's love interest in The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing. Odd Lot Entertainment principals Gigi Pritzker and Deborah Del Prete said Thursday at the American Film Market.
Media 8 Entertainment is repping international rights for the film at the market. Baldwin will be the male lead in the adaptation of Melissa Bank's best-selling short-story compilation. He'll play an older Lothario in the publishing biz who wins over Gellar's ambitious book editor.
The film will be produced by Pritzker, Del Prete and Darryl Taja, with co-producer Linda McDonough. Production is scheduled to start in May, with scribe Marc Klein (Serendipity) making his writing-directing debut.
