According to Variety, comedian Dane Cook is in talks to star in Employee of the Month, which Gregory Coolidge is directing for Lions Gate Films.

In the pic Cook will play Zack, one of two dorky clerks at a discount superstore. When the men think the affections of the new cashier are at stake, competition between them for the Employee of the Month title turns brutal.

Tapestry Films' Andrew Panay (Wedding Crashers) is producing.
