With Cameron Diaz now signed for the film adaptation of "In Her Shoes," which will be directed by Curtis Hanson ("8 Mile," "L.A. Confidential"), producers now look towards casting the secondary leads and supporting characters.
The film focuses on the sibling rivalry between an irresponsible party girl Maggie (Diaz) and her older sister, responsible attorney Rose. According to casting documents obtained by FilmJerk.com, filming is scheduled to start in mid-January, although a shooting location has yet to be determined, with Philadelphia and/or New York most likely.
Diaz is the only actor attached to the cast at this point. Among those roles out to actors' agents and expected to be announced as cast in the coming weeks are:
Rose: At 30 years old, Rose is Maggie's older sister by two years. Overweight, she has a reliable job at a prestigious law firm in Philadelphia where she is having an affair with a junior partner. She has a nondescript sense of style that is offset by a winning wit, but her self image and resentment of Maggie create real conflict for her. Producers are looking for an actress who is believable as a sister to Diaz's Maggie.
