In a story from Variety, Cameron Diaz is going to star in Columbia Pictures' Bad Teacher.

The film is directed by Jake Kasdan (Zero Effect) and was written by The Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

Diaz will play "a foulmouthed, gold-digging middle-school teacher who, after getting dumped by her boyfriend, competes with a colleague for the affections of the school's model teacher."

The production of this film is set to get underway this Spring in Los Angeles.
