Kristen Bell will play the title role in the romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, during her eight week hiatus from Veronica Mars, according to Production Weekly.
Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother), wrote the script and will co-star with Bell, with Nick Stoller making his directing debut.
After a devastating break-up with his girlfriend TV sitcom star Sarah Marshall (Bell), a heartbroken and depressed Peter (Segel) heads to Hawaii, for a little vacation to try his best to forget every detail of his relationship with Sarah. But love laughs at Peter, because Sarah is vacationing in the same exclusive resort as Peter, along with her new boyfriend.
The project will start filming mid-April on location at the Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, Hawaii and Los Angeles.
Bell is also attached to co-star with William H. Macy in Renji Philip's an independent drama Antique. The story follows the intersecting lives of eight residents in Echo Park, as they all search for the strength to break free from the pains of their past.
Bell would play Claire, a young girl who after befriending a homeless man (Macy) learns the only way to improve her life is to leave the people who have been holding her back.
The ensemble also includes Claire's self-destructive best friend, Samantha (Rachael Leigh Cook); Claire's alcoholic mother (Lolita Davidovich); her drug dealing boyfriend, Danny (Kevin Zeegers) and Danny's grieving mom (Anne Archer).
